DanLock is an amazing puzzle, and it's fair to say it set the bar for trick locks. Disassembly is straightforward, but once the lock is open the fun begins. Reassembly is baffling...it seems impossible, but careful observation and thinking will yield results.
Handcrafted and extremely well made, Danlock is very well designed, and an absolute joy to solve. A copy belongs in every serious puzzle collection.
Here are some comments by noted collectors:
"Overall the mechanism is absolutely marvelous - it is a pleasure to do this puzzle again and again and again!" - Kevin Sadler, Puzzle Mad
"If I had to give away my entire collection of locks – there must be a hundred or two hundred of them – and keep only three, this recent acquisition would be one of them. As the other two are rather nice antique ones, we need not consider them any further here. To my way of thinking, the new lock is easily the best of the modern padlocks and is called “DanLock" - Edward Hordern, Cubism For Fun
"The Danlock is a truly exceptional puzzle, and I would say that every puzzle collector should aim to have one of these in their collection." - Puzzle Paradox
"Most agree that this incredible classic deserves a spot as one of the all-time greats in the puzzle “Hall of Fame” and certainly the puzzle lock Hall of Fame." - Boxes and Booze
