Hi everybody,
First of all sorry for my poor english; I've just opened the box of my new magic trick; it's a coded lock that allow you to make the lock open with the birth date of someone for exemple (I'm sure that you know of what I'm talking about). The problem is that the instructions about the performace are really poor, the effect seems weak.. mabye it's possible to use the lock in combination with another trick.. the best thing for me is to give to the effect a mentalism trick look. I need some ideas and advices for the effect..
I wait for your opinion! Thanks!

Have a list of pieces of papers with number related sentences on them, like "your age" "your weight", "your street number", "your bank account number". Have spectator select the "your birth date" by your favourite method. Build the tension showing he could have picked anything, but picked this. Ask for birth date, the lock opens. Remove lock from box, give the chocolate that was in the box to the spectator (or if you're a pickpocket, give back their watch that you put in the box just before the trick appeared to have started).
