I finally got Magical Door it is perfect for me being a locksmith very happy with this item.
Was surprised to see the embossed design on the plastic plates was unexpected and makes it look very cool.

Also like the looks of the key very close to a real key way better than expected and I am picky about keys. Smile

Very easy to do and effect looks impossible.

The first effect chain through key is great but don't really care for the second effect wrapping the chain around the plates it just looks fishy no matter how you try to do it.

My locksmith friends and customers were astonished they all wanted to buy it from me.
I said I don't sell it but can tell you where you can get it but better hurry before there are no more available.

As recommended to me by many of you I purchased this item from magico-japan on ebay they have a fantastic service. Very knowledgeable and friendly plus fastest shipping ever. Ordered and received it in about 8 days!

I am very pleased with magico-japan service and prices on items and shipping cost. I highly recommend anyone looking for new and some already discontinued Tenyo items to buy from them you will be glad you did. Smile

I tried to take pictures for the blog so we can see the embossed design on the plastic plates because I also found that it was very nice.
Happy you like this great trick.

Thanks for the review MrWizard. I totally forgot that it is a pretty good effect? It fooled my wife and that sais a lot, trust me Smile To bad it can't really be completely inspected before or afterwards, exept for the key and chain of course. What I did to overcome this was to 'pull' the chain downwards quickly, put in the key and let the spectator try first. Then I would use the 'gimmick' way Smile

Well it can be completely inspected but not all pieces at the same time unless you have several people watching it then you just keep the problems from coming together. Just keep track of the gimmick piece.

I let each piece be inspected before and after showing it to even just one person.
Easy to control what they have in their hand at any one time. : )

Suspension always falls on the key and chain and they can look at those forever and find nothing.

I find this trick one of the more easiest to control the secret compared to many others.

My wife was completely fooled by it too and she has caught me on many of the best tricks and slights I have done for decades. If I want to test proof a trick for what not to do I show it to her she will catch the mistake in a second. Smile

Magical door is a great trick. It's easy to imagine a lot of cool variations on patter for this too. The first time I saw it, I kept thinking the chain had to be gimmicked- a very clever effect.

Hey Richard I can see where this effect would be perfect for you. In case people don't know Richard is a "world class" locksmith and has created some pretty cool things in his profession.

I love this trick too.
Just FYI though- When I pulled the chain to penetrate through the key, the chain broke (one of the links pulled open).
So don't pull too hard.
