Effect and procedure yes.

I get some car keys and both cars drive.

But one is a superior driving experience and far higher precision technology.

Since the Supalok is difficult/impossible to find, the poster asked for a close alternative. I gave it to him.


YOU however, just wanted to argue about quality, etc. which is not what the poster asked, not relevant, and not helpful. Time for you to move on.
We get it- buy your svenpad because it "is a superior driving experience and far higher precision technology."

Understandable as I have owned both and know the vast differences between them.

I don’t think any of the currently available “alternatives” offer the complete hands-off ease of use for the performer as the old supa-lok.

Many props ultimately play the same to audiences.

So my advice to the poster would be to keep looking for a used supalok which won’t be inexpensive, but a worthwhile investment.

Anyone familiar with this lock? Apparently, it functions precisely as the discontinued Mick Hanzlik locks: https://www.magiccenterharri.com/catalog......id=17848

This one looks like you can so the supa lock thing twice as far as trying each key then the real one.

This is a gravity lock. It is "hands on."

I ordered one last week and will post a review upon receipt. In the meantime, this is the product’s description translated to English:

Effect: You hand your audience a heavy six-key brass strap lock. From that moment on you will not touch the lock anymore. Ask the audience to check which of the six keys unlocks the lock. Viewers conclude that none of the six keys fit the lock.

No wonder, because you have retained the right key. You hand this key out to a viewer. This one tries him and - indeed - this key (the 7th!) Unlocks the lock.

Now you give (for example) a borrowed ring on the temple and then snap the temple in again. Maybe even on the buttonhole of a spectator jacket. - The keys are now thoroughly messed up until no one can say which is the right key. - You now claim that you can only influence the choice of viewers for a key with the power of your will.

And indeed, the first key chosen by the viewer fits the lock and it can be opened!

Ideal for many routines that require a mental castle, such as "7th Key / The 7th Key" etc.

Width of the castle: about 5 cm.
°°°°°°
With "Lupo's Supra-Castle" you are now holding one of the most convincing locks of this kind in your hands. It is perfect for a variety of locks and key effects. It looks completely normal, because it is a commercial lock. The keys are not all the same but different. It works in the hands of the viewer. It can be quickly made ready for demonstration. Lupo's Supra-Castle will not disappoint you!

Re: SupaLock:

(earlier post): "There is no way a spectator will tell it is a gimmicked lock".

...But isn't there a "certain something" on one of the narrow sides of the padlock - that might look "suspicious" to a spectator, considering that this "same thing" is also seen on the bottom of the padlock?

I received the lock today and it does indeed function hands-off and precisely as the late, great Hanzlik’s Supalok. The only difference is that it resets from the side as opposed to the bottom which is trivial to me. The lock is comparable in size to Hanzlik’s largest lock and manufactured of the same high quality and precision. The keys appear more like standard keys from a lay audience’s perspective in my opinion. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and will most definitely put it to good use. Generally speaking, I only endorse and support original creators but given the unfortunate circumstances, this product comes very highly recommended. To me, it is a far better option than paying an overly inflated price for a used, original Hanzlik due to scarcity if you are even able to find one available.

Am commenting to keep track of this thread.

I too would love to hear your thoughts on the supra-schloss when you post them. I was in contact with the gentleman selling this lock a year or so ago, but unfortunately I didn't follow through with the order as I was concerned about the lock not being what I was expecting.

Cheers guys, can't wait to hear what you think of this .

I have Hanzlik' marvelous lock, the middle sized version. It is marvelous, but I perform in some settings where a larger lock would play better. To let me make two comments, and then ask a question.

Me Hanzlik lock resets from the side, so it may be identical in that respect.

The German lock appears to come with seven keys; five keys came with my Hanzlik lock.

Regarding the size of the German lock, someone said it is about the size of Hanzlik's largest lock but, in the webpage picture, the lock in the fellow's hand appears to be about the same size as my mid-sized Hanzlik lock. So, naturally, I am reluctant to spring for it. Can anyone clarify the German lock's size, like it's dimensions?

Thanks,

George

In German only... but the functionality is very simple.

For routines check our Jim Kleefelds new book “LOCKED”

Can you copy the keys if you are looking for a specific design?

I'm confused by the question? Specific design of...? Key?

I doubt it.

Keys for these locks are superb - and each has it's own cuts.
