Patter for The NEW Spirit Lock
This heavy lock was used to house major criminals back in the late 1800s. One such criminal escaped under very peculiar circumstances. The jailer knew it had to have been the work of the spirits because as soon as he went to the cell he noticed that the heavy lock was unlocked and only he had the keys.
To make sure of his findings, he took the lock and placed it upon his desk. After locking it, he watched, and lo and behold, in a short period of time the lock opened by itself. This is that lock and we will see the spirits in action through the demonstration we will observe today.
