The Secret

There is no base to the trunk. Instead, the 'base' is mounted vertically behind the front of the wall of the trunk, and is supported by two end pieces. This means that when the trunk is tipped over the false base piece is in the correct position so that when the lid is open, everything looks normal, and the trunk is empty.

The assistant is concealed behind the false base, and can easily appear once the lid is closed and the trunk is flat again. The magician and helper outside the trunk conceal the supporting side panels.
