Lock Box is a sequential discovery puzzle box. Its simple appearance hides a very complex mechanical mechanism that requires multiple discoveries to open. No gravity moves, spinning, tapping, banging or force is necessary or allowed.
I think this is one of my best designs to date. Multiple steps and discoveries are required, with knowledge of the mechanism coming in stages until the box finally opens to reveal its prize.
This puzzle is very precise and must be kept between 40 and 60 percent humidity at all times. Do not expose it to high humidity conditions under any circumstance. We do not guarantee proper operation if stored outside these conditions.

I like it very much. Thanks Eric.
Soon as I got this puzzle it instantly gained pride of place in my collection. It hooks you in from the start and demands exploration. Inventive , logical in the right places and a good level of dificulty. Loved the subtle design choices, poking you in the wrong direction, playing on your assumptions . Highly recommended
This box is simply amazing! It took me quite a while to solve it and I published my extremely positive review on my website. Beautiful wood, great craftsmanship and a stunning challenge. Thanks Eric!
