I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.

Just recieved this in the post this morning, and I'm very happy with the idea and the lock. I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with this. I shall be trying it out later, but already I can see that this is going to blow people away.
Thanks for releasing this Paul. Another cracking effect from Mr Brooks.. Kudo's to you sir Smile

I now carry my little padlock next to my Haunted Key on my keyring and I'm getting excellent use from it. The best bit about my padlock, for people who know the effect, is that there's a slight but VERY useful glitch on the middle tumbler as it rotates, so I can safely set a random combination for the spec to try to find using their hunch about how they think it works. Basically, they prove to themselves that it can't work the way they think it does, he he...

Just a little subtletie I used at a gig the other week, I was fortunate to get 5 minutes on stage before I did some table walkaround.

After introducing myself and getting the attention of the whole room I did some 3 psychological forces and asked if anyone got all three. I had 2 or three from each table (except 1 table who only got 1) raise their hand.

I then asked these people to get a 3 digit number in their mind for when I arrived at the table. It proved a really good way to approach and have them talking about me before I reached the table.

Just wanted to share.

That's a good way to do it Andy, I have done something similar but with people who other effects have not worked on. I explain that the other effect did not work because the person has a different viewpoint in life. But knowing that the effect was ineffective has demonstrated to me just how that person's mind works.

Then I launch into the effect.

I would be really interested in hearing the different presentation angles that people are using with this effect.

Great idea andy. I've been trying to figure out a way to put the lock into a larger context... and something like that would work well...

something that I've just start to play with is using the lock as the weight of a pendulum. the last number is always easiest to get and glimpse. I get them to put the lock on the end of a chain and (knowing the number already as a back up) see how they do when I count through the numbers.

I've had mixed success with this so far. but I think there's something there.

"Now Tasha, we spoke earlier didn't we...and you have a padlock on your keychain don't you..can we use that now please for something?"

A form of p**-s*** with an object...makes it look like you've had nothing to do with it all.

That is genius!

What do you after the effect is over? Does the person try and hand you the lock back?

Well, don't forget, I'm close up mainly - so I just nab it back off them before I go...if anyone is listening - or you are unable to get them alone, just say something like "i hope you enjoyed that experiment using the lock - may I have it so I can try something else with it later if there's time, please..."

Thos of you who have Jerome Finley's Thought Channel...think about combining this effect with the concepts in TC and TC 2.0.

This kills...

No, very easy to perform and deviously clever.

A guy at my magic club showed me this effect and I had no idea what it was. Thanks to Dick Christian on another thread I was given a link to Paul's website.

Never heard about Paul before and was quite worried about buying directly from what was to me a new name.

This dropped through my letterbox yesterday and I am so pleased with the method. Really enjoyed Paul's writing style as he made everything clear and easy to understand.

I have not yet performed this effect but I am very much looking forward to doing so. Having had the effect performed for me before I discovered the secret I can testify just how clean this effect is.

Very happy customer here, thanks again Dick Christian.

For those of you unsure of the power of this effect -- tune in.

This truly is dynamite.

Once they set their number I have even asked them to just check that is the only number that opens it.

Had fun doing using this with groups the other night. Letting the other members of the group have a go at picking up on the numbers. They were surprisingly accurate especially when the dials I asked them to go for had my favourite psycho force numbers.

I like the sound of this product and is just about to order it. Could you (or anyone else) give a hint of some material about forcing numbers on spectators? It seems like a good really combination of mentalism.
