Failure Means a Drowning Death! 

Here is a description of Houdini's classic escape:  A large "Milk Can" made of galvanized steel is examined and filled with water.  The performer is handcuffed and steps into the can.  As he squeezes himself down inside, the water dramatically rushes over the rim of the can.  The assistants quickly force the lid onto the Milk Can and place the padlocks through the hasps to secure it in place.  A display clock starts, and a curtain is placed around the Milk Can.  Minutes go by and the audience grows restless.  Finally, the drenched escapist comes crashing through the curtains--alive!  The Milk Can is then revealed to still have its lid completely locked tight in place.

NOTES: Please Read-----

This prop is from Eddy Wade's personal collection and performed by him only twice in public.'s slightly used. It is suggested that the buyer NOT attempt to perform this most real and dangerous escape. This prop would be a nice addition to someone's magic collection for display or in a venue as a conversation piece. The curtain is not supplied.

Serious Inquires may call or e-mail. The method of escape will only be revealed to the buyer.

Disclaimer: Waiver of Immunity

The buyer will be required to sign an agreement with the full knowledge and understanding that Eddy Wade nor Magic Methods is responsible should the purchaser attempt escaping from the Milk Can and be injured or cause death.

The Top of the can is made of Stainless steel and requires two locks, which may be supplied by audience members or local police officers.
