The Lighter Leash





NOTE: they have recently updated the design of the lighter leash real, and it hasn't even more sturdy and stable REEL!!! It has a nice metal clip as you can see in the photo below.


Oh what a fun toy!

What is the Lighter Leash?

As you can see in the photo it is a special rubber gripper attached to a REEL. The gripper will hold any small object that fits in it. You can vanish pretty much anything!

Years ago Mark Horowitz (Lee Asher’s dad…) gave me a lighter on a pull. I attached that to my belt loop and was surprised at how much fun it was to make the lighter vanish. Every time someone would pull out a smoke I would light their cigarette for them, and vanish the lighter. Anytime I would light a piece of flash paper, or anything, I would vanish the lighter. At first it was a throw away but I soon realized how strong it could be to vanish an object that was just a moment ago ON FIRE….and show your hands completely empty.

Then came this cool lighter reel!

This little gizmo was built for magicians and I’ve been using one to vanish lighters, coins, and other small object for a long time. You can vanish one, two, three, four, and even five half dollars!

It holds any standard bic style lighter that you will find in gas stations and convenience stores around the world. The device can also be used to vanish a number of small objects.

The special rubber gripper works like a dream to quickly vanish a handful of coins and just about anything that can fit inside!!!

Will vanish well over a dollars worth of loose change. Vanish it all…or transform it into a dollar bill!

A silk or handkerchief…

The gripper will hold up to FIVE half dollars AND a shell! Perform some killer coin work and then vanish all of the coins! Ross Bertram would slay people with his this identical method.

Here is a closer look at the perfect fit…

As you can see in the photo below it will SECURELY grip ONE half dollar just as easily as four.

Will vanish Sharpies, Pens, Pencils, etc.

Even a bottle of VODKA! : )

If it fits… can vanish it.

Ross Bertram fooled a room full of aristocrats while Dai Vernon looked on one evening. Vernon was fooled badly by what Ross did. Ross was surrounded by spectators and managed to vanish a handful of coins bare handed!!!

Vernon wouldn’t leave him alone until he showed him the vanish. Vernon persisted and finally Ross took him in a corner to show him the method. When Ross showed Vernon his pull he scoffed and stormed away! Vernon was mad that he had been fooled by a pull!

Now you can fool them all as well!!!
