keys are given to the spectators to verify that they do not open the
chest. A fifth key is given, which they verify that it opens it. Then
the magic begins.
The magician hands over a valuable object. His
car keys, for example. The viewers put them inside the chest and lock
it. They they mix and distribute the keys among them. The magician acts
just as an spectator and directs the actions of the game, but he never

the magician chooses one of them, but then he dismiss him or her. This
is done just to add some suspense to the trick. The spectator must
discard his key, putting it in the chest slot. Now it is impossible to

repeated. The possibilities are now reduced. Any mistake at this moment
and the magician will have to walk home.
The performer hesitates
when choosing the third spectator. Finally he does it and another key is
put into the chest. Now there are only two possibilities left. One
mistake here and the magician will have to break the chest.
Nevertheless, with BDM Hands Off
from Bazar de Magia good luck is always on your side. The same action
is repeated with spectator number four. The fifth spectator will
approach the chest and will open it, giving back the magician his keys.
This climax produces a standing ovation.
Hands Off is, to my thinking, the perfect solution to a classic
premise. The method is elegant, sure fire and trustworthy. It offers the
performer an invitation to countless presentations, confident in its
ability to amaze and astonish. Highly recommended!"

Hands Off is a terrific effect. Random keys are dropped into the box
until only one is left, and that always opens the box. This has so many
possibilities for very strong routines, whether mentalism or magic.
Hands Off has so many great features - a heavy box, sturdy keys, very
easy to work, no suspicious moves, everything tried and tested - this is
an exceptionally good lock and key trick."
