All right, I have been interested in escapology for many years and now have decided to try to add a straight jacket escape to my act.

Where can I go to learn this? To purchase a good straight jacket? Also, I do know that the Master of Escape was in excellent physical shape, I am short and chubby, will this prevent any danger to straight jacket work? Any other questions I am too ignorant to know that I should ask?

Paddy your right in the same town as my uncle. I don't see why you couldn't do a SJ escape but please read the other posts about it to. Some people have been having troubles with their shoulders. As to where to get one the first time I got mine was from a medical supply store.

Hey Peter,

Being short and chubby is the best escape artist to be as it "breaks the mould" I'm short and fat and though in some cases I've had to alter my methods to obtain release there is NO escape you can not do.

Keep your arms positioned above the "pudge" or if you are put in the SJ real tight you have the stomach as a slight added obstacle.

Good Luck and if I can be of more assistance please let me know.

My first jacket was from Davenports here in the UK. A simple construction, made of canvas with leather straps. A nice easy jacket to break you in.

There are two places I have found online to get SJ's one is . They sell both gimmicked and ungimmicked. Or you can go to . They sell restraints for hospitals, jails, and prisons.
I hope this info is useful to you.
