Another Tapes Release

Effects with this tape principle are practically endless, and a bit of thought will show you new ways of working. An effective way is to have tapes prepared with thread and folded back on each other so as to form fake joint. Then place tapes under a man's coat (joint behind his back) and bring the tapes around in front and tie a single knot. Tapes are then threaded through each sleeve. A ring is placed in each of the gentleman's hands and tapes threaded through each ring, respectively. A single knot is made with a tape from each side, and ends given to two spectators to hold. See Figure 48.

Upon pulling tapes they free themselves and become stretched out before gentleman in middle. If thread does not easily break just reach up under coat and break it.

Another way is first to thread rings on tapes then go through the routine above. Performer reaches up under coat and removes rings then has tapes drawn out. All this is done while gentleman is wearing his coat.

The Japanese magicians have a way of doing the tape release in which several persons are threaded on the tapes. In their hands the effect is very puzzling.
