I was on a website that said you can walk thru a tree or a telephone pole using a handz up gimick, using the same idea of walking thru a mirror. I do not know how to do this. If anyone can help, a pm would be appreciated.

According to their website, Hottrix offers a manual of ideas that is downloadable upon purchase of Handz Up. You might also do a Magic Café' search for "handz". This will turn up a lot of threads on using the prop.

It was in the magicians section of http://www.newmagicsecrets.com
I don't own a handz up brand third hand, I wish I did so I could get the e-book. My parents bought me "The Third Hand".

They said it is more convincing than walking thru a mirror, because people know the tree is not gimicked.

I have tried walking through a telephone pole (accidently) and ended up with stitches. Be careful.

If you know what the gimmick is then you know how to perform the trick.

This is one of the simplest and oldest versions of the walking through an object there is. It is really so easy that I had often wondered how it fooled anyone until I tried it myself and saw the reactions from the audience. I used a piece of painted plywood instead of a mirror or a pole.

Here you are simply taking the “daylight séance” idea to the next level (using a longer and wider drape).

Frankly you don’t need to buy the gimmick (but you should because it is so realistic) you can make your own using a pair of gloves. My first daylight séance gimmick was made according to an old Dunninger “how to” card that originally came with a pack of cigarettes. I got it from a junk box in an old magic store for a big nickel.

I believe that just looking at the ads for the gimmick at the sites mentioned above more than tips it off.
