I had the good fortune to see Ali Bongo perform at Colon in 2001. He did a quick wrist escape before his close up routine. He graciously agreed to reveal the method to anyone who wanted it, but I couldn't locate Ali after the closeup sessions were over. Does anyone have a wrist tie/escape that they use with? I am looking for a source.


P.S. Glen Gerard also has a great routine that he recently performed at the Houdini Club convention in Appleton, WI last September. Smile

I have and use Steve Bedwell’s wrist tie. It is not an escape but rather a thumb-tie kind of routine (along the lines of Harry Anderson’s Handcuff routine).

I also knot loops into a length of rope, one loop around my wrist pulled tight, the rope around the other wrist, pulled tight and knotted to a second loop. Yep, it is an impromptu, made on the spot, “Siberian Chain Escape” set-up. If you know the Siberian Chain Escape than you can tie the rope similarly and use knots instead of a padlock. It works. With this I do as a thumb tie bit to escape. While I thought of using the rope myself, it can’t be original to me, it is just a logical extension of a very old effect. In fact some years ago, I saw a guy use his necktie in a similar fashion (no pun intended!).

Check Daryl's Rope video's and Tarbell #4 (I think) Daryl's will teach escapes and Tarbels will teach the Thumb tie.

DO a search for the Kellar Wrist Tie, and you'll find not only a method, but also a great routine.

Saw a Minnesota magi, Toby Travis, do a wonderfully funny routine with it about 6 years ago.

Non-stop laughter. Eternal Impact.
