Get The Vault right here: World Magic Shop

David Penn, the creator of Mystery Solved and Coinvexed has applied revolutionary new thinking to the ring-flight plot. David has also combined this killer effect with an organic version of the nest of boxes resulting in an effect that will be impossible to comprehend for your spectators.

You casually place your keys on the table, in full view prior to sharing a moment of magic.

A borrowed object such as a ring or a signed coin vanishes without a trace.

Even though the keys have been in full view from the start, for the first time, with empty hands, you pick up your keys and show that attached to the keyring is a box. You open it and inside is another box. You or the spectator opens this to find another box inside. They open the final box of the three to find their object!

The Vault is a precision made gimmick that allows you to accomplish this incredible effect without the need for complicated sleight of hand.

Presented by Wayne Fox and created by David Penn, this is a truly impossible effect that you will always carry on your keyring. This is 'The Vault'.

"That fooled me completely! I've always loved the Nest of Boxes and this is TERRIFIC!"
Doc Eason

"That is just AWESOME!"
Ravi Mayar

"This is pure GENIUS! Your spectators will have no chance to comprehend what just happened"
Rus Andrews

"That is INCREDIBLE! I can't wait to use this!"
Eric Leblon

“This is epic! Such a well structured routine and the final kicker hits you hard when you least expect it. My kind of magic, I love it!”
Steve Rowe

“THE VAULT blew my mind and will kill your spectators dead. Love it!"
