In 1977, I experimented with a unique little spring clip used to hold photos in a darkroom, the spring clip rather than a c-clamp made the difference!!!
This device was receptive to a match striker which could VERY easily be wrapped around the spring and extend through the clip.
This had NEVER BEEN DONE before!!!
The striker change is quick and easy!!
Many knock-off artists have tried to emulate this effect to no avail: The Spanish version takes forever to load, the India version is a pain and snaps the matches.
This one works every time. I used one 99 times in a row without fail.
This is why DAVID COPPERFIELD, LANCE BURTON (USED 6-LIVE ON THE TONIGHT SHOW), JEFF MCBRIDE, MAGIC-IAN (ME), & HUNDREDS of others use DEPENDALITE (dependelite) exclusively.
The double (a 30 year old sample shown in the picture) was a superbly engineered clip which had two spring clips mounted on a spring hinge. Although it worked great, there was a fumble factor. So, I discontinued them. The need for a double match pull was mostly as a backup and since my singles rarely failed, it was an un-necessary option. Of course some people need several matches during an act, but the best solution (since the single dependalites are so inexpensive), is to have several singles loaed and ready. However by Popular demand I have introduced a new and improved DOUBLE MATCH PULL.
Lance Burton is the key example of backups. He has six mounted on a velcro strip so he can load them and slap them into his jackets wth fumbling. He tried the doubles and found the multiple mount method to be the best. You can buy as many as you like at
