Block Through Rope

Block Through Rope

Block Through Rope is from an original idea of 1941.

There have been many “Block Off Rope” effects based on a similar principle. This is a wonderful effect to add to any magic show and I personally use one in most of my shows.

This fun effect is suitable for all ages.

In summary a Solid Block of Wood and a length of rope are freely shown and can also be examined.

The piece of rope is clearly passed in through one side of the block and out the other side. The rope is passed again back to the start and an end passed through again to “lock” the block onto the rope.

There is now a solid block of wood secured to a length of rope.

The rope ends are now pulled apart…This can be even be by a spectator…. and the block is suddenly free of the rope.
