The David De-Val Straitjacket has been expertly remastered and reproduced by PropDog, Allan Taylor and the family of David De-Val. One of David's original Straitjackets was reverse engineered to make an exact copy which was then tested by various escape artists and members of the UKEA (United Kingdom Escape Artists) and improvements were made where they thought necessary, such as reinforcing the rivets on the inside of the jacket and the UKEA then gave it their official seal of approval, making this one of the best straitjackets ever created!
The gimmicks are in both sleeves and are expertly hidden, so much so that a spectator could completely examine it and even put the jacket on themselves without ever finding the secret.
One of the most important improvements on this straitjacket is that it comes in a small, medium and large. Something never done before with straitjackets, usually you end up with an extremely bad fitting one that's either way too tight or way too baggy. With our new size option, you can get one to fit perfectly!
As guide to sizing, think of it as puchasing a t-shirt or sweatshirt, if you wear a small t-shirt, then the small would be the best option, if you wear a large, then the large would be best. Please check out the videos below before purchasing, we go in depth into the sizes and this will help you make a decision based on your build.
If you purchase one of our straitjackets and find that it's either too big or too small, please don't worry! Just pop it back in the post to us and we'll exchange it for a bigger or smaller size. If you're a very large built person or quite overweight, you may struggle a bit with the large size. Please feel free to purchase the large and if you can't get in it, simply return it to us and we'll give you a full refund. If we get enough people wanting an even larger size, then we will produced an XL version in the future.
