This makes use of a little known
Escape Yoke that was one of Qua-Fiki's first escape effects as a
Wiz Kid, so you know it's easy to make and perform, yet it never
fails to get him applause because it seems like such a difficult
escape. He wears a heavy wooden yoke over his neck and shoulders.
Chains fasten his wrists to the yoke and around his neck in such
a way that it seems he will choke if he isn't careful. Two more
chains anchor the yoke around his legs, making it difficult for
him to move very far or very fast. The chains are fastened with
ordinary padlocks and members of the audience help chain him up
and inspect the padlocks, etc. Yet he releases himself in less
than ten seconds. It's a spectacular escape your audience is not
likely to have seen and because it happens so quickly. One
caveat: It needs an assistant to take charge of the chaining
because he really is quite helpless while he is in the yoke.
