The Chinese magic linking rings is a common trick that many beginner magicians learn in their first batch of tricks. The set up and secret for how these rings works is fairly simple. The basic trick is that you have rings that are solid and rings that have a small gap in them. Throughout the tricks you perform, you simply make sure the gap is hidden from view. When you show the rings to your audience, make sure your hand or fingers over the gap. Then simply go about your magic routine and sue the gap to make the rings seemingly snap and unsnap, just like magic.
