one of the more simpler gimmicks ive made for pickpocketing and watch stealing is what i like to call "the steal of stick"
heres what you need (remeber i mentioned this is one of the more "unproffesional" ones ive made so dont have a cow
first get a long skinny peice of card board, and some very very strong double stick tape, my dad works with this stuff so the tape ive got is very strong anyways, the cardboard should be skinny enough to fit in someones pocket but tall enough that it sticks out about an inch, cover the part the of the cardboard that will be in the pocket (not the inch thats sticking out) anyway you have this gimmick in your hand or whatever, i do this in the halls whenevery one is touching and bumping, but you slide this into there back pocket as you bump and kinda bump them on the butt so the tape sticks to the wallet, now what youv got is a peice of cardboard with the wallet stuck to it in grabbing reach, so once its in you appologize and maybe do a trick then when the walk again dont bump them but just say oh youve got something on your pants and brush their leg off as you do this actually tug on the pant leg to straighten the pocket and pull up on the cardboard and youve got thier wallet. i only use this particular gimmick when the wallet is really deep, it alows you to have something to grab ahold of
im busy brainstorming for some new ones so i cant post the others right now
I prefer to use my hand over gimmicks for pickpocketing........but that is cool
