And... is the temperature of the air matter?

Hi Hektor,

The room temperature makes no difference whatsoever. The more the key is bent, the harder it becomes, so if they bent it say 45 degrees, they could bend it further, but it would be harder to bend it again than the first time. If they bent it 90 degrees, they might be able to bend it a tiny bit further, but this would be very hard. Once the start bending, the momentum makes a 90 degree bend very easy in one go, but in two goes, it is harder. I hope this all makes sense. The only way to truly understand and feel the bends are to try it yourself.

Regards

Dave

And my order from this morning has already been shipped, I'm impressed. Obviously PropDog has been able to make a few more keys now!

My son placed my order. The order status changed from Processing to Shipped in just about 30 minutes or so. And that's called great and prompt customer service. Smile

Thank you.

Ordered 100 of these. Can't wait to give them a whirl. I've been using Steel (nails that are made like these keys) and it kills. Keys are a more logical everyday item to carry around than nails, so I'm looking forward to new presentations that will be possible with the keys.

Okay, I'm getting obsessed these. But I need to promote a show and then it all clicked.

Hole punch your business cards, slip some ball&chain through them and put them into your jacket pocket.

Use getting the card as justification to do the dirty work a la Tamariz. Once you have the 'special' key in play, thread the chain through the key and loop it on.

Voila, your business card is now a keyring for the key and part of the souvenir.

@Harry Patter: That makes a very sensible routine and presentation. Thank you for sharing.

Great idea Harry! I usually use Key Accessory by Andrew Gerard. At the end, the spectator walks away with a bent key dangling from a rubber band around their wrist. Great visual at the end of the night with many people wearing bent keys. The rubber band idea will work with these keys as well and/or you could use the rubber band instead of the ball/chain in Harry's routine.

Looking forward to getting my hands on these because they sure do look good... Does anyone have any idea when these will be stocked in the USA?

HI Jared,

I'm afraid that they will never be stocked in the USA! Only we make and sell them and the only way to have them stocked in shops in the USA would mean quadrupling the price and I'm not willing to do that. However we do have hundreds of customers in the US who purchase regularly from us, shipping is free over £50, you don't have to pay tax, so you get the cheaper rate and shipping only takes around 8-12 days.

regards, Dave

These are great and I donít think they could be made any better and are definitely a decent price . However certainly donít make it a challenge for your spectator to bend the no bend key as I can certainly do it . Also once the easy bend key is bent although itís a lot harder it can still be bent back the other way as I out of curiosity not only done it but ending up snapping it . Like anything else itís audience management and possibly best done on someone very petite , that being said they are not melt like butter bend and they have to give it a bit to even start the easy bend ones off . Still very good and like I said I canít believe they can be made any better than this so overall very very good in the right hands 🙂

Hi Colin, I'm really surprised to hear you say this, it's not the feedback I've had from any of my customers, so I can only assume either you had a couple of dodgy ones or you weren't bending them enough. As the description says, the more you bend them, the harder they are to bend back, if you only bend them a little, then yes you can bend them back, but if you bend them to a good 90 degree right angle, they are extremely difficult to bend back.

Nobody called Colin placed an order for them, so I don't have your details, but if you drop me an email with your address, I'll send you free load more to play around with, because this really isn't the case.

kind regards,

Dave

I was obviously not bending them enough. I prefer shallower bends, less than 45 degrees. The subtler the better for me. Although I did just try bending a couple to nearly 90 degrees and while it is harder to bend them back it is absolutely possible to do so.

On the flip side I struggled to bend my keys, I found you had to use quite a bit of force with two hands.

Once bent though they won't bend back!

Just got mine in.

I just tried to bend one and it snapped right at 90 degrees! Yikes. Makes me a little hesitant to perform it.
