I can Christopher...of course. Other then the info in the ad copy
The webmaker and skyhooks can be used together or seperate.
Depending on what you want to do with the IT.
It takes a little advance time to set up a whole room but there are ways you can do this quickly.
The webmaker is a locking spool device. You can anchor the spooler on a wall or under a desk (for example) spool out the IT as much as you need and then lock it place.
The skyhooks: these are devices that will alow you to string the IT across a room in a way that your spectators won't run into them when they walk through.
when you combine the two you can make vertually a web of IT around a room. Imagine standing on one side of a room and making something levitat on the other side of the room, you are no where close to it!

The webmaker is easy to re-wind IT onto it to use over and over, comes with Kevlar IT.
The Skyhooks are made to be disposible. Use them, leave them and buy more if you need too.

Hope this helps?

David, that info was above and beyone helpful to anyone wondering about the products.

Years ago someone put out an effect that used IT across the room. Problem was that people would run into it. lol. Seems like Jim solved this problem.

Thanks!

Hocus Pocus's website says "Each package contains 15 SKYHOOKS and full instructions". The price is $7.50.

The ad for Skyhooks reads:

"Imagine, having the ability to keep your IT elevated and completely out of the way of your spectators and where you can easily control object from across the room. Rosenbaum now makes it possible!

SKYHOOKS, when used in combination with Rosenbaum's WebMakers (can also be used without WebMakers), allow new arrangements for IT routines and effects, which are only now possible.

The simple design and near invisibility of the SkyHook, allows you, to ladder long distances of IT, keeping the IT out of the way of your spectators.

Finally, you can now have a crowded room of people, elevate or easily arrange your IT to avoid your spectators from breaking it, and create new miracles from across the room".
------------------------------------------------

Webmaker ad:

"From the mind of Rosenbaum comes a new patent pending IT (Invisible Thread) utility device that has opened new doors in the areas of threadwork.

The reloadable WEBMAKERs locking utility spooler can quickly dispense IT for routines and effects at a moments notice, be used to create elaborate webwork, and when used with Rosenbaum's SkyHooks, create new effects and stunning miracles that are only now possible.

WEBMAKERs are an essential complement to all of your thread effects, do not require expensive refill spools, and are very inexpensive to use.

WEBMAKERs can be reloaded with most any IT and allows you the ability to reload with various types, lengths, and strengths of IT specific to your needs.

WEBMAKERs are specifically designed for breaking thread and are quickly restored to working order with a simple and quick technique fully explained in the included instructions.

Each package contains two WEBMAKERs (one black, one White), preloaded with approximately 30' of IT".

SKYHOOKS: I must say this is a very useful utility device for any floating and animation. If you use ITR, Ultimate Float Controller, Tarantula or Spider Pen - then this is a MUST have addon for IT magicians.

You can do things that is not possible without the Skyhooks, you can make things float or move even if you stand on the other side of the room and w. no assistent.

If you can put a SkyHook in a very high ceiling then you can do a very HIGH levitating, not possible with standard It work. I recommend that you try a set of SkyHooks. Very useful. Lot of fun things to do with SkyHooks.

If you like practical jokes, put a dollar-bill on the street, let it float up to a tree (or another high object) - and watch the face of the victim. THAT is funny.
Yes - Skyhooks can be used in outdoor settings.

People love great animation or levitation, it makes a huge impact if done correctly.

A great product but a tiny price.
