Demo Video

You won't believe your eyes!


An ordinary length of red rope is fed through the hole in a plastic block.
The rope can be seen through a cutout window in the front of the block.
When the two halves of the block are pushed apart, the rope can clearly be seen to be split into two separate pieces.
Yet when the block is put back together, the rope is restored and can be pulled out of the block in one piece!

So simple, this is an excellent trick for the new magician.
Shows up well for a small group or classroom too!

This all-time favorite classic pocket trick is now manufactured in heavy duty plastic for durability.
COLOR MAY VARY from photo and video.

What You Get

Here's what you'll get:

  • Zig Zag Rope (case and rope)
  • easy printed instructions

And that's all you need!
Color of box and rope may vary.

Tips & Ideas

Performance Ideas:

Wrap a piece of tape around the tip of the rope (so it looks like the end of a shoelace). That will keep the end of the rope from fraying, and will make it easier to feed the rope into the case.

Customer Reviews

Zig Zag Rope Case Trick
Ever notice how the best magicians also make the best storytellers? I have been amazed at how often I've regarded a trick to be too simple , for a beginner , or childish... only to see one of my favorite magicians, including Mr. Monticup, dazzle me with a story that intrigues me as much as the effect! One such trick is the Zig Zag Rope trick. This trick is easy to do and makes a wonderful beginning effect for starting magicians, but don't be misdirected! I've made up a story for this effect that people seem to love, and you can, too! This is the kind of trick that you can do at a moment's notice, for one person or several. The effect works wonderfully at the dinner table while waiting for food to be served. I carry this little trick with me all the time in my daily bag of tricks. If you are a long time customer of MagicTricks.com, Mr. Monticup may even toss this effect in your order as a free item. Either way, don't be without this one. The right story can bring a lot of smiles! The trick requires no setup preparation, other than following your patter, it is visible for closeup and limited parlor distances, and the effect resets itself, leaving the magician clean. Keep this one on hand for those impromptu situations, Hey, show us a trick! You'll enjoy this one. The price is right! Get one for your magic bag or pocket, today! Highly recommend.
