Hey,

I was just wondering for those of you that own straight jackets, what is your best time. What I mean is what is the shortest amount of time it's ever taken you to get out.

Mines 26.99 seconds.

Discuss.

If this is true, then you should submit this for a World Record....Given you use a regulation Posey jacket

Are side arm straps the things that prevent you from bringing your arms over your head?

Yes it was a regulation posi jacket and a little small for me, the side straps do prevent you from bringing your arms up and over the head so easily. Oh and one other thing this was done dry not undarwater, I was going to do one in a sub trunk under water but never did, and the Penn & Teller did one on a special of theirs.

That's actually a good idea. I never thought of it, but it makes sense to me. That would explain why Angel did his 100 foot rope tie in the hot tub. Good thinking. :wink:

Yes the trunk would have water in it and I would have done it in a lake. If done in a pool you could have a floating cover the right size to hide the escape, move the spectators back far enough that they could not see the bottom of the pool for the angle, or like someone said, use bubbles but they will say that is where you are getting the air from to stay under water.

How can someone think that when everyone knows it's impossible to breathe under water? I guess it would be the really unintelligent people that would say that. lol

Maloney the current world record is like 18 seconds so if you really did it in 13 you need to contact guiness.
