Product Description

Allow your spectator to completely examine a case that is divided into three compartments. Have him screw three metal nuts and bolts into the case. The nuts and bolts are not gimmicked in any way. The spectator locks his own finger ring onto one of the end bolts. Slide a transparent cover onto the case so that it is impossible to remove the ring. However, when you cover the box briefly with a handkerchief, the ring has magically jumped onto the middle bolt.

I love Tenyo. I love the clever methods and I love performing these jewels for magicians and laymen alike. So keep that in mind as you read any of my Tenyo reviews.

The Prison Box is a creation of the incredibly clever Angelo Carbone. It has been touted in many of the magazines as the standout item in the 2001-2002 Tenyo Collection. While I will have some good things to say about this piece, my feelings for it are not as strong.

As with all Tenyo products, the piece is well made and is practically self working. As with all Tenyo products, the method most likely will fool you and your audiences. Though this method is not nearly as much "fun" as say the Mystery China Box.

Though the method is good, there is another very plausible method that could explain how the effect is accomplished. (Rings sliding in and out of the side of the box.) While this is NOT even close to what happens, you will want to make sure that you establish this method as... [Read More]

This is one of my favorite Tenyo products. The effect is you show a box with three compartments that represent three prison cells. A ring is held with a bolt and nut to one of the end compartments. You cover the box with a handkerchief or silk, remove the silk and the ring has traveled from one end of the box to the other. Clearly a gag as all you did was turn the box around. However, you cover it again, then remove the silk and the ring has travelled to the middle compartment. The box can be handed out for inspection and the participant will not be able to see how this is done.

It is a beautiful prop and the method is really ingenious. The explanation is typical of Tenyo, on paper, but well explained.

The quality of the prop is top notch. While it shouldn’t be handled roughly, it should last a very long time.

This is something I use, and I will explain my routine in the suggestions section. The response to the routine has been tremendous.
