Houdini's Trick Lock Puzzle

This trick padlock offers a brain workout for puzzle and brain teaser lovers of any age.

Pick Your Brain

This devious puzzle is designed to look just like an old-fashioned, sturdy metal padlock, but woe to the poor innocent who tries to open it like one. Turn the key...and nothing happens. Nothing ever will happen, because it's a trick lock. The real "key" is a mental one: the solution to the trick, which you have to figure out.

Puzzle locks have been around for centuries, foiling burglary attempts, keeping secrets, and helping escapologists (yep, a real word: we checked) baffle audiences. Feel like The Great Houdini, picking your own lock while honing fine motor skills, logic, and critical and imaginative thinking. Made in China.

        I ordered this as a gift for my puzzle loving brother. Sadly, I had to give him a picture of his gift. It arrived yesterday, a full year after ordering. I'm worried however because it looks like one of the keys has a piece metal on the side that looks like a flaw. I hope this darn thing works after waiting a year.

                This was an excellent gift for my father who enjoys puzzles. My brother, sister and I figured it out before him and while it frustrated him, he really enjoyed the challenge.
