Hello everyone. Searched with no success. Looking for a snow storm packet holder? A clip for under the jacket? I want to steal off the body. Any suggestions?

Just thinking out loud. Could you use a billiard ball holder and just bend the wire to the shape of the load?

If you buy the "Ultimate Snowstorm Set" you'll get a fan, some snowstorm packets to practice and a nice booklet called "Secrets of the Snowstorm" by Larry Maples & Raven. They teach you a lot of possiblities how to load the snowstorm packets.

Good luck!


Oliver.

The best clips, holders, and magic secret stuff are the ones you make yourself.

experiment with different things out side of magic to make what you need.

also with out knowing your jacket and how you want to steal it and with which had and if you need to ditch at the same time or any other important info we cant really suggest much

the larry maples booklet does have some good info in it.

the only suggestion I can give from my got ideas lecture is use magnets.
the idea is to make an extra piece of material that has the magnets in it and sew some into your coat then by making a flap you put the snow load in there
now with one hand you can easily reach in and using a finger to separate the flap and the snow load will fall free into your hand.

of course motion will have to cover the motion but should work.

just my thoughts hope they help

I have several extra pockets in my coats. 4 storms just sit there till needed.
No reason you can't use the bottom of a chalice, a thread-wrapped packet that hangs.

Basically. Where do your hands hang normally? Where do you hold your arm when you bend your elbow? Wherever you are most comfortable is the "spot" to hold something.

Read all the classics Hoffmans, Wilson's, dunningers, tarbells and you will answer the question 10 times over.

Editorial: why don't people read these books more often?

If you are looking for holder maybe you can consider to use Universal Holder by Alexander de Cova

Agreed there is no holder that can't be made without a coat hanger, magnets and gaffa tape!

Dai Vernon's original handling is still the best way to obtain the snow storm. It is published in a little booklet called, "Select Secrets". It is the proper way to perform the Snow Storm, with the Torn and Restored Chinese Laundry Ticket type trick, followed by the snow storm.

Wrap the load in a tissue, then use a bent paper clip attached to a safety pin. The tissue helps contain the load if any of it decides to fall out.

These are all good ideas. I'll have to try some.

Just another thought. Tape or glue a metal shim to the top of the load and use a strong magnet pinned to any part of your body as a load or to your table or a prop.
