im trying to get a escape that i will be able to transport somewhat small, can be inspected, and be perfomed surrounded. I don't want to have a straight jacket escape and i can build basic wood structures for it. This is a escape that i want to be able to perform in a circle on the street. Any Ideas?

Is the Tom Horn Leather Prisoner Transport Belt a good idea to use?

Yes, the Tom Horn Belt is perfect for this; I've used it for busking.

You will find out when you try it. I am sure it varies from person to person. And being quick is not always the best objective.
Buy one at Cannons Great Escapes.


Have you ever busked before? Whats your past history with escapes as well as performing? Busking is not as simple as most people think.
I am just assuming thats what you want this for. As it seems you are new to escapes and performing in general.

i am somewhat new at escapes, but it is a great interest to me. I have not busked before, but i have done some things with strangers at parties. i have a safe mall to work out were every once in a while there is a performer. i know that at first i won't be making alot, but it is good practice. I am almost 15. If you have any tips on busking that would be a great help also.

I would learn how to get out of hand cuffs, because if your going to attempt toe perform in a Mall for money, then you could kicked out if not arrested. You fist will have to get liability insurance, then you will need the malls permission, then you will need to create and perfect a routine, a presentation, a bally and a hat line.
There might also be other legal issues due to your young age.

I really hope you dont plan on starting any time soon. To me it sounds like your only into it for the money, as you have put very very little thought into this.

OK, i understand what your saying. Where should i start on a low budget, i have done the 100 ft. rope escape, a pair of gimmicked darbys, a siberian chain escape, and gimmicked leg shackes. I also want make sure what ever i get is something that will last and not give out in a year.

i would get the mailbag escape (available here) and some trick handcuffs (available at www.themadhatter.com). from here, you can invent your own
