This lock is purposely designed to be an introduction to puzzle locks. It is not designed to be a very difficult puzzle.
But a lock that still has the precision engineering and ingenious twist that we know Feldman locks for. Just not so complex that you feel as though you can never solve it.
The lock comes with a key so it should be straightforward to open but as we know that is often not the case. We found it was even tricky to separate the key from the lock although that’s just a little added puzzling bonus!
We’re trying very hard to give you the information you need to decide if this lock is for you without giving spoilers. What we can say is that the trick is as clever and cunning as you would expect from a Feldman lock; just not as complex as usual. And if you already own the DanLock then perhaps this is not a puzzle you need to buy.
This puzzle lock is designed and made by Boaz Feldman. All Feldman locks are made from real padlocks made by Nabob in Israel that Boaz has precision-machined into this unique puzzle lock.
Size: 84mm x 50mm x 17mm This is the same large padlock that the DanLock is made from.
Packaged in a felt bag with Boaz Feldman’s card and a link to the solution video.
It seems that designing and making puzzle locks runs in the Feldman family. Boaz’s father Dan is famous for the mechanical puzzle masterpiece that is the Danlock (also available here at Mr Puzzle) and Boaz has now taken on the mantle to keep creating them. We’re also stocking B-Lock and B-Lock II.
