Tri-N-Snap by Mike Rose(c. 2016) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This is an updated and revived version of the classic Snapper trick invented by G.W. Hunter c. 1910.
Effect: A wooden triangular block is shown. The block has a hole in each of its three sides and a length of elastic woven through it. The magician demonstrates how a solid brass rod can be manipulated to hook onto the elastic within the block and caused to snap back when extended. Although it seems easy enough, no one else is able to cause the brass rod to snap back into the device.
In an effort to “help” the spectator, the magician explains that he is using the wrong hole and only one of the three holes will work. After trying all three holes the spectator still has no luck.
The magician offers to “help” some more by explaining that he has a second brass rod and that he had secretly switched it out. The magician apologizes for his trickery and explains only one of the brass rods actually works. Naturally when the spectator tries the second brass rod he still cannot make it work in any of the holes.
