The Substitution Trunk

This trunk is specially constructed. It can be closely examined and appears to be an ordinary trunk, but at the back there is a cleverly concealed door. Even when the trunk is locked and strapped, an escape can be made from it through this door.

The trunk is 40 inches long, 26 inches wide, and 28 inches high. The trunk is bound with wooden slats. Figure 1 shows front of trunk.

Figure 2 shows rear of trunk. The slat going around the middle of the trunk helps to conceal the top of the secret door. The metal binding around sides and bottom of trunk help to conceal sides and bottom of secret door.

Figure 3 shows secret door partially open. To keep door from pushing inward before time, bottom of trunk has a special hinged panel, about five inches wide and running the length of the trunk at the back.

Figure 4, next page, is a diagram, showing a cross section of the trunk from one end. It shows the secret door in place with the special panel in position to hold door.

Figure 5, next page, shows panel lifted. This is done by inserting a buttonhook in the small ring which is in center of panel.

Figure 6 shows secret door open. It opens inward and upward and is also raised by inserting a buttonhook in a small ring at the bottom of it.

Figure 6 shows secret door open. It opens inward and upward and is also raised by inserting a buttonhook in a small ring at the bottom of it.

To close door, it is allowed to drop into place and the panel is forced down against it.

The hinges in these secret arrangements are, of course, sunken and are not visible. The inside of the trunk is heavily lined to cover up any cracks and hinges.

This trunk will withstand use on the road with things packed in it, and yet when unpacked, it becomes a valuable piece of apparatus for a rapid escape illusion.
