So I found some metal handcuffs lying around at home (they're just prop ones, theres a little release lever on them but I have keys too) but I thought it would be cool to use them in my show or add them to some effect. I figured they could add to the presentation and make a trick more interesting or impressive. But I'm really blanking out on ideas so I wanted to ask here. Does anyone use handcuffs (not as an escape trick in itself) to enhance an effect?
I was thinking something like finding a lost in the deck with my hands cuffed behind my back or something.. but I want to develop it further..


Thanks in advance!

I would do something like a loced deck effect where you handcuff the deck to yourself or the spectator ! Not sure of the name of the trick, but it is where the cards would all have a hole in them to pass a padlock or ribbon thru (thus locking the deck) and then you remove their card from the locked deck.

A PK effect might work. The handcuffs adding proof that you didn't use your hands.

I believe you're looking at http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/1360.

I like Erik's idea about a PK effect. If nothing else, you could definitely use them as a decoration or a gag.
