You get a gimmick and what you need to refill it, paper instructions, and links to video instructions.


This is a custom thumb tip that appears to be very well made. I don't think it gives anything away to say this, as it is custom made and when you get it, you will realize that it is not something that you are going to DIY. It uses a method that is very interesting and very effective. The method allows you to dribble a bit of salt and easily stop, dribble some more and stop, and on and on. Alternatively, you can produce a long stream of salt. It can be quite angle proof, use the same judgement you would use with any thumbtip.

The quality of the product seems very good.

The explanation is good enough. The paper instructions are a single page, they pretty much tell you what you need to know. The video explanation goes into various routine ideas.

The ad is fair and honest.


There is not much to not like. You can fill the gimmick, drop it in your pocket, and it won’t leak salt. It will only dispense salt when you want it to.

Excellent! I can see myself dropping one in my pocket for an impromptu effect. Perfect for so many applications, such as a casual dinner setting, a quick routine with friends, a close-up routine, or formal parlor routine.

Suggestions from the Reviewer

In the explanation, they talk about using with only salt, not sugar. I suppose that is because sugar might gum it up. However, I filled mine with water, and it works excellently! I don’t know if it would be “drip proof” in your pocket, but if you put it in a small ziplock bag, it is likely to only release a couple drops into the bag. It would be great for a casual effect where you squeeze water out of impossible objects.
