Performers are always looking for something unique to add variety to their shows and The Thumb Tie fits the bill perfectly. It's an unusual piece with strong magic and plenty of room for you to inject your personality and style. In this lesson, Dan teaches you multiple methods and a wide range of presentations.

First, you'll learn Ten Ichi's original (and still baffling) thumb tie with a few of Dan's surprising touches for unexpected fun.

Then, Dan shows you a number of variations for the tying procedure so you'll be able to find one that's perfect for you.

Next, Harlan teaches you how I employ a devious (and slightly dangerous) method from Tarbell himself to defeat a truly secure tying procedure.

Plus, he goes way beyond the standard routine outlined in the original lesson by including modern presentations and methods, starting with a mixture of pickpocketing and escape that's so much easier than it looks. And, don't worry everyone leaves with their own belongings, plus a little something for their trouble.

Then, Dan use common garden variety twist-ties to comically capture a couple, steal one away momentarily, and bring them back closer than ever.

And if that's not big enough, check out this intimidating guillotine escape gone wrong. Who has two thumbs and gets away unscathed? This guy.

And finally, an impromptu, emergency method requires nothing more than a couple of rubberbands to re-create the puzzling penetrations of the original.

So, when you're looking for something different to spice up your show, consider the surprisingly strong Thumb Tie in any one of its memorable variations.

Tarbell + Harlan = Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 19th, 2016
I now have 32 of these downloads.
Harlan gives wonderful instructions and seems to anticipate every
question and covers every possible problem area you might encounter.
Although I will only make use of a fraction of the material, it is a very useful
resource to have in my library. an enciclopedia of magic.
Thank you

Great Stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 19th, 2016
I have every one of these downloads and some are great and others are really great. I have been thinking of doing a thumb tie for some time but have never worked on it. This download will give you more methods and more routines than you could ever need. There is some great stuff here.
I am always amazed at the creativity of Dan Harlan. A very good Tarbell lesson about a somewhat forgotten motif.

Wow, I was going to perform my usual zip tie thumb tie escape at a show this weekend, but after watching this lecture, I have a couple of different methods I may have to try out instead of my usual! I particularly love the method Dan came up with for the zip tie escape. Pure genius! This is a great resource for learning everything there is to learn about thumb tie escapes. Including how to make the escape into a much bigger thing which will play on stages of all sizes. Great work!

Great escapes Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2017
I have used the rubber band thumb tie for a few years now when just working in bars or parties when doing larger escapes would be impractical. It it's always fun and plays big for the size it packs. I bought this hoping to get mostly some presentation ideas and that I have. Also Dan's teaching is for me at least, crystal clear. His twist ties presentation is something I know I will be playing with. Over all great ideas only reason 4 stars is the illusion. He explains how to build it yes but for me I kind of got lost during that part. A PDF add on for just the construction would have been great. It's a nit pick but just me

Once again Dan proves what a superb teacher he is on this excellent Thumb Tie download.

There are many versions to pick from and some very entertaining routines.
I can't recommend this enough if your intension is putting

Well done Dan & well done Penguin magic.
