The zip tie thumb tie that started all the zip tie thumb and wrist tie crazes. 

The Original Zip Tie Thumb Tie  doesn't use gimmicks, slack, extra fingers, tricky cable ties or anything other than a standard zip tie, firmly holding your two thumbs together... for real. 

Nothing like those "slacker" ties that require you to stick in fingers or bend thumbs to get slack. There is nothing like the original.

As performed in Las Vegas and around the world.



A normal zip or cable tie is borrowed. A participant firmly cables the performers two thumbs together, making it impossible for the performer's hands to separate. The performer ends up with his arms linked on microphone stands, rings, chairs, people... you name it. It's like the performer is one giant Linking Ring!


At any time participants can check and see for themselves that the performer's thumbs are completely and firmly tied. With no funny moves, the banded hands can see to be instantly penetrating a rod, chair, arm... anything.
