DanLock is an amazing puzzle that sets the bar for trick locks. Disassembly is straightforward...once the lock is open the fun begins. Reassembly is baffling; seemingly impossible, yet careful observation and analysis yield results.
Danlock is handcrafted, very well designed, and an absolute joy to solve. Every serious puzzle collection should contain a copy.
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
"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
Handling Metal Puzzles
I heard a lot of good words about the DanLock, but it wasn't until I got my hands on one.
I love puzzles not only for the satisfaction of unlocking its mysteries, but also for the "story".
DanLock is one of the few puzzles (I had my hands on) that has a great story. It starts with a decision you have to make and it continues to tease you until you finally manage to unlock it and very happy and exhilarated you think you conquered it, only to be faced with the task of putting everything back into place. And the story keeps you entertained!
One of the best puzzles I solved.

Between the b-locks and the funlock, the danlock is the most clever of solutions. Even if you see solutions online, it doesn’t matter. Your still gonna have to figure it out for yourself. Position is everything. And it’s hard to find the right positioning. I very much enjoyed the danlock. It’s definitely a great addition to my collection. Also Cubicdissection has the absolute best prices compared to any other site that carries any of these locks.
After taking the recommendations of many established puzzlers, I finally decided to check out the DanLock. This was my first foray into a true sequential discovery puzzle, and it was a wonderful experience. Each time I made progress on this, I was wowed. This had the right amount of difficulty for me, and I look forward to sharing it with others. If you haven't tried this out, you are missing out on a true masterpiece.
