EFFECT/DESCRIPTION: You ask to borrow a couple’s wedding rings and you place the rings on the combination lock. After relocking it you hand the lock and rings back & ask the person to try and open the lock. They find that they are unable since they don’t know the combination.
You ask what year they were married. He responds (if he remembers, otherwise she does). With your powerful mentalism (and WITHOUT touching the lock) you alter the combination asking the person to enter that year on the dials aligning the numbers so that the blue line runs through the middle of the numbers.
PRESTO! The lock opens and the rings are returned to their owners. But…there’s more…
Then, while the crowed is still scratching their heads, you wander over to a couple holding a baby. You ask to place the baby’s teether on the lock. You lock it and hand it to the parents. They will inevitably try the date mentioned by the previous couple but alas, it doesn’t work!
The couple is congratulated on their beautiful baby and are then asked to enter the year of their baby’s birth onto the dials aligning the numbers with the blue line. Once again you announce that you will use your superior mental powers to change the combination with your mind (again WITHOUT touching the lock). Then suddenly, you guessed it, after they enter their baby’s birth year the lock opens. Performer returns the teether and you accept a roaring round of applause!
