You'll need a Master Cabinets & Luggage lock, model #647D. I purchased my original lock in Walgreens. The reason I recommend this particular lock is because the combination wheels turn from number to number with a firm "click." This is vitally important to the successful performance of the effect. Also required are nine number cards showing the digits 1 through 9. If you cannot find a suitable number card, simply use nine playing cards, Ace through 9 of any suit. Arrange the nine cards in numerical order 1 through 9. The top card of the face down packet is the number "1." Wrap a rubber band around the nine cards and place the packet in your jacket pocket. Prepare a note supposedly containing the new combination, but use the wording as previously noted in the description of the effect. Fold it and seal it in an envelope. Set the opening combination on the lock to 1-6-6 (the instructions that come with it will explain how). Leave the shackle of the lock in the open position. You'll also need a drawing pad and black marking pen. You're all set.

Today I'm going to teach you a fundamental Mentalism technique known as 'cold reading'. Cold reading is a technique employed by mentalists and charlatans and by charlatan I refer to psychics, mediums, fortune tellers or anyone that claims false abilities that is used to give the illusion that the person has some form of super natural power.
