Hi All--

I am in need of magic help and always know I can find it at The Café.

I have performed the "Keller Tie" for over thirty years. After a long time away from the stage, I am performing again and wish to add the effect (escape) to the new show.

So - what's problem?

I am old. Ha! Seriously, it has become harder to get my wrists to cross behind my back to perform the effect correcting. And before you say it, yes I an working on streatching and conditoning.

Also--

I never liked turning my back to the audience while performing the "Keller Tie".

So my question--

Is there a version of the "Keller Tie" or "In and Out Rope Tie" that can be done standing and with your hands tied in front of your body?

Please know I have read all the posts here (In The Café) and researched a number of books before asking this quesiton.

I know about other "in and out" escapes. I have cuffs and can do a thumb tie style escapes. But I wish to use a rope since it is part of a rope routine that ends with the Keller Tie.

Any suggestions?

Your help is greatly appreciated.




Kindest regards!

The first item in Grant's "Rope, Chain, and Box Escapes" - is the "Zella Master Tie" - that can be used to bind any one of your 4 limbs together - in front or behind you - and yet, it's still an instant OUT..and then back-IN again.

You said you wish to STAND on stage and only use ROPE---so, I guess the classic "comedy in-and-out rope routine" while sitting down, and having your wrists tied on your knees - is out....as is a Siberian Chain Escape (have you thought about a leather Siberian Chain escape?; and too, a thumbcuff "in and out" escape.

If I think of more, I'll chime-in.
