I'm not Monopoly jail

Question

I'm a dumbbell you can't lift

So you won't get the best of me

You're my captive, catch my drift?

A bucktoothed guard, I'll hold your key

I've got in board, but there's no doubt

I've certainly not been subdued

Fighting me won't get you out

'cause tougher jams I've gotten through

What you need's a turn of fate

Or card: get out of jail free

If you want to cross my gate

And once again the blue sky see

Hmm, I can't remember being on one of those contraptions so I'm not sure how well it would fit the riddle. But it's not what I had in mind.

the law?
Not the law, and that's sort of close to the title's exclusion of "I'm not Monopoly jail".

This doesn't feel right,

But I'll answer anyway,

My thoughts come to light,

A BAR seems okay.

Not what I've got in mind, and I'm not sure how that would fit with the "bucktoothed guard" or "I've got in board" clues.

Also not what I've got in mind, I'm not sure how this one would fit with "dumbbell" or "bucktoothed".

Not what I'm going for either, with the bucktooth and board clues.

You're entering a parking ramp?
A pretty good answer, the only big clue I can't really see it fitting with is bucktoothed. And there's a more subtle clue with "tougher jams I've gotten through" just sort of hanging there as if it were meant to refer to something.

Yeah I was thinking maybe the guy taking your money at the gate, but thats not a key...so..

maybe for bucktoothed gaurd..could refer to one of those lucky-rabbit foot key chains...ummmm, maybe a gamblers addiction? I don't know.....

A serrated knife? I can explain, if you like...

Awesome answer!!! I think it fits everything. Except I'm wondering about the third line.

if you're held at knife-point, you'd be a captive, wouldn't you?

Ah yes..

the buck-toothed guard being the spikes to pop your tires if you drive right thru without paying...

makes perfect sense..Nice job PG!

Not sure how it would fit the dumbbell clue, or be bucktoothed

That is a pretty good answer that I hadn't thought of. How would it fit with the "card" clue in the 10th line?

That does make the toll both answer seem better, but a buck tooth is a single or pair of large protuberant upper front teeth, which wouldn't describe a row of equally sized spikes. Unless maybe I were talking about a bunch of bucktoothed guards. But I'm not. Edited by plasmid

Someone being handcuffed? Or just Handcuffs?
This one also fits a lot of the clues, but I'm not sure how it would fit "I've got in board"

Alice In Wonderland?
It's been so long since I've read or seen it that I've forgotten whether there are parts that would fit all the clues. I'll just have to say that it's not what I have in mind.

Being stuck inside of one that's not responding to you would give a neat meaning to needing a turn of fate to get out. I'm not sure how it would be bucktoothed, though.
