Ring and Chain Magic Trick

How to make an easiest trick with a ring and a chain

Here’s one of the eas­i­est clas­sic tricks that nev­er ceas­es to amaze!

Safe­ty pre­cau­tions



  • chain;
  • met­al ring.

Step-by-step in­struc­tions

Hold a chain in one hand and a met­al ring in the oth­er. Pass the chain through the ring so the ring is per­pen­dic­u­lar to the chain. Drop the ring. The chain will catch the ring at the end of its fall.

Process de­scrip­tion

To com­plete the ex­per­i­ment suc­cess­ful­ly, the ring must ro­tate around its di­am­e­ter as it falls. This ro­ta­tion will al­low the ring to fall through the chain and form a loop as it moves along it. Ul­ti­mate­ly, this re­sults in a sim­ple loop of the chain around it­self. To make sure the ring ro­tates, hold it so that one edge is rest­ing on your thumb and the oth­er is be­tween your fore­fin­ger and mid­dle fin­ger. Pull your thumb away to drop the ring in such a way that it will start to spin. Keep in mind that the ring must be heav­ier than the chain – oth­er­wise, it won't work.
