Default Attn: Escape Artists - Cannon's Great Escapes Interrogation Cell with ATA Case

The U.S. Special OPs are trained to withstand severe interrogation tactics in case of capture. But they are also trained in "E & E" (Escape and Evade) tactics. Famous (or perhaps infamous) in their training is the "Prisoner Interrogation Cell". On that premise, we bring you this brand new escape. With the appearance of steel, but in fact built of light-weight diamond plated aluminum, this beautiful cell measures 45 inches long, 23 inches wide and 25 inches tall. EVERYTHING IS CLOSELY EXAMINED. The ONLY way in and out is via the jail-bar caged door. That door is locked two ways: First, the "T" handle has a lock system that is secured with a key. However, a large, heavy-duty hasp is then also used to lock the door shut. That hasp integrates a combination lock system. When locked inside of the cell, it is impossible for the escapist to see the combination lock. After overcoming various manacles (not included) or perhaps a mail bag (not included) the audience WATCHES as the performer first somehow overcomes the locked "T" handle, and THEN REACHES THROUGH THE BARS AND BEGINS TO "PICK" THE COMBINATION LOCK BY FEEL ALONE. INCREDIBLY, HE SUCCEEDS, and makes good his escape! Remember: An actual audience member inspects everything, locks the performer in place, tests the security of both locking systems, etc. This escape will work for most performers. As an example, a performer measuring 6'5", and weighing approximately 230 lbs. has recently performed this escape most comfortably, with room to spare. This escape breaks down for packing to a size of approximately 48" x 28" x 7", and weighs approximately 41 Lbs. (without ATA case). Features two handles on each side. NOT FOR UNDERWATER ESCAPES - FOR STAGE ONLY.



There are a couple of features on this box that are custom (put there by Mark Cannon).

The first is a series of holes drilled in the back panel. This to let light into the interior to help the audience see what is going on inside.

The second is two reinforced bolts on the back panel to attach a light source (I never used this feature - it was something the first owner had added).

There is also a chain affixed to the floor of the box (by Mark Cannon). It is designed so that it can be wrapped around your neck (or around a wrist) and locked or thread a pair of cuffs through the chain and then cuffed to you. It makes for a more difficult looking escape. It is an “extra” cost when buying the box.

With the ATA case and modifications the prop retails for nearly $2,000.
Selling for: $1200, plus shipping (can go UPS/Fedex oversize, so no freight charges).
