The idea for this Escape Room Prop came from an Escape Room based in the UK. These gears allow for a large size Cipher to be mounted on a wall for Escape Room players to work with.

We also have a wall mount available for the gears.

Each gear is 15.75” in diameter.  The material is layered, with top layer being a ¼” thick fine maple veneer with MDF core.  The back layer is 1/8” Baltic birch plywood that adds strength and rigidity. 

IMPORTANT: The gears are sold individually. The listed price is for a single gear. In order to have a functional Cipher you will need at least two gears. That being said, if you are creative it may be possible to use a single gear to provide clues if you combine it with some other object.  

You can string 2 or 3 or even more wheels in any pattern where one wheel will turn the others.

There are many potential ways to use the wheels, but here is the most obvious perhaps:

By setting one as the start wheel with a marker point on the wall; as that wheel turns the marker point could  be aligned to a particular letter that you supply as a clue.  The resulting letter or number on the other gear(s) could be the answer.  A key word or phrase could be supplied that when dialed in one letter at a time, results in a secret message being revealed.

For a modest fee, we could also customize the text on the gear teeth.  They could have any characters,  vector artwork, or a language other than English. We could also add text or arwork to the spokes or body of the gear. Please contact us separately for this custom work.
