Linkey, Linkey, Linkey hmmm…. nice name and the name says it all, a key that links.
Linkey is an innocent looking key that enables you to link it to rubber bands or any thin necklace, strings etc. The gimmick is very well made and is very sturdy too. It will last you all long time.
The package comes with an instructional DVD, a gimmicked and a regular key as well as some rubber bands. The keys are uncut, if your house keys uses the same brand, you can get the keys cut and use it. The gimmicked key can be shown freely (but not examined closely, that’s what the regular key is for). The effect is straightforward, easy to perform and understand. You can start performing this just after a few practices.
Apart from the gimmick key, there is also a bonus routine whereby a spectator’s key is taken off the key ring (right in front of spectator) and then instantly link it back to the key ring. The hands are then shown empty. This requires you to wear a jacket and also construct a gimmick. Construction and purchasing of gimmick is very cheap and easy. This effect is visual and also, it uses the spectator’s key which makes it even more impossible. However, the bonus trick may not work on everyone all the time. If the opportunity arises, the bonus effect will be a killer.
Alan Rorrison is a very clever magician. I am beginning to like his stuffs more and more. Highly recommended!
