Hey gang,

Just picked up a universal pull. I'm wondering what people have done to minimize noise or simply make it easier to use. I understand there is a lot of trial and error here, and I need to adjust mine to fit better before showing it off apparently. Otherwise, any tips and hints? Couldn't find much on the net.

Thanks!

Welcome to the Café'. What is making noise? Looks like if you put a coin in one yes it will rattle around. Stuff it with napkins so the coin wont rattle. Looks like the teeth on it grab what you put in it. Lighter, pen etc. etc. maybe try to post a little more info. Smile db

If with coin(s), a couple of sponge balls did the trick for me in the past.

Hello JayLenosWife,

I glued some sponge in mine, that worked perfect for me.

Yours sincerely

How do I attach the pull to my jacket? It's always not pulling in completely and it always ends up stick out or behind my jacket like a sore thumb! Please help! I want to use this but it's giving me more problems than usual!

Nick, don't attach it to your jacket. I "thread" the elastic through my belt loops, starting with the one on my side. Ten pull the elastic around (without stretching it) and through loops, and then pin the elastic to your pants. Your jacket will cover all of this. You will need some misdirection to reach in and grab the unit, as it comes out transfer it to your other hand and you're ready to go.

Wow! that helps a lot! So where does the safety pin actually be pinned? the first belt loop on the right? and should the pull part be inserted in the first belt loop on the right or...... the belt loop adjacent to the hip?

Always put mine right over my left pants pocket. Made it easy to grab when going into or out of the pocket. I pinned the other end to the belt loop that put a little tension on the elastic.

What should I use to replace worn out elastic cord?

I found this on Amazon.

I found 5 yds on Penguin for $1.50, but if I can source this at Jo-Ann fabrics, I'd probably go there.

I learned, in the '40s, when I broke in, in a sideshow, to use the belt loops pretty much like Jimhlou describes. I can't begin to count how many "Coin Go's" I've sold at lectures all over the US of A!

I've found that a couple dark blue 260 balloons, tied together will serve as the "motivating force" for a p*ll.

You're more than welcome, "MegaBang"!

A few years ago, an old buddy gave me a SPOOL of black elastic cord!

I will probably NEVER need to buy any more! Few guys ever realize that a p'll should just "ease" the "vanishee" away, not "snatch" it.

I also use a tiny 'bulldog' clip rather than a safety pin, to 'anchor' the other end of the p'll. It's much faster, and easier.

Harlan TARBELL was a practicing nudist. There were many nudist camps along the southern shore of Lake Michigan, then. Doc lived in Chicago, so he performed at many of them. A magician at the Wizards' Club asked him, "Doc! Where do you pin your pull?"
