Murphy’s Chest by Bazar de Magia

(c. 1999) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Seven Keys theme was created by Joseph Kolar in 1927, see here for more details.

Imagine a box with valuables inside and keys freely… honestly freely… chosen and even traded amongst the audience members. You can be given a key that they select. They can even change their minds mid-way through the performance, and trade their keys, or your key. It doesn’t matter. What does matter… and this is the key difference… is that your key always works. But, you never need to touch the box. Yep.

That’s right. Unlike other tricky lock effects where the magician takes the last key and is able to open the lock, this effect is entirely self-working. You always get everything in the box, and you do absolutely nothing.

    Underrated and Overlooked

    I can’t understand why this effect has been around so long and hasn’t received more attention. Maybe that’s good for people like me, who love using this innocent, but devious contraption.
