Not yet ...... But having read the news piece Hrley posted I'm trying to work it in (not my Johnson [that should be dead easy]] but the toaster in to the act).

May be we should choose an item every year and we have to try and have it in our act. A bit like the Wilhelm scream, but a visual thing!

Well here we are, mid September and all I have left is the paperwork. If I get that through then I will be able to claim the record for most handcuffs unlocked in one minute.

Latest Guinness World Record book say 7....I did 8 but should have done 9 however we had a mechanical issue at 50 odd seconds which left me with one cuff hanging.

Hi Stuart, What types, brands of cuff were you using? Was there a set proceedure to having them applied to your wrist or was it random?
It would have been good to watch, any vid?

We will get the vid uploaded as soon as we can once I have got a copy to GWR.
The rules are that the cuffs must be police issue or used by law enforcement in some capacity and put on you by either a police officer or an EA BUT the person doing the record can not own the cuffs or use their own cuffs. The cuffs must be inspected before opening (all of them must be on the arms to start with so if you plan to do 9 or 10 but can only do 7 you will still have three cuffs on your wrists).
The cuffs are single locked.
The keyholes can point in any direction you want.

Not yet but I know there is interest in James Peters 8 hour posey record and I think that someone out there will go for the handcuff in a minute record again.
Oh and we made £250 for charity.

Congratulations Stuart in having Guinness recognise you as the record holder for the person who has opened the most handcuffs in a minute. Keep up the good wok!

Before Dave jumps in about stir fry cooking, I meant work, not wok!

Thanks Dan. It was a month ago we set it but it feels longer. Thanks to everyone for the kind words
Bring on next year but what a month.... I also jointly won the magic clubs close up comp with an all escapology act.
