Ali's Bolt Take-Apart Puzzle

DESIGNER: Steve Nicholls, Ali Morris
MATERIAL: Stainless Steel
SIZE: 4" x 1.125" (7 cm)

Ali's bolt is a very deceptive and tricky take-apart puzzle. The goal is to remove the nut from the bolt. It's difficult to describe without giving too much away, but the mechanics are unlike any other bolt puzzle I've seen. At 10cm long, this puzzle is heavy and substantial.

These are the last of this puzzle and no more will be made. You can find reviews of this puzzle here and here.

Handling Metal Puzzles
While all metals tarnish over time, residual oil and salt from handling speeds up the process and leaves fingerprints. An individually packaged metal cleansing cloth is included with each metal puzzle sold on Cubicdissection. Metal Puzzle Polishing Kits which contain a larger cleansing cloth and microfiber polishing towel are also available.

This item is sold out and no longer available. Our Marketplace is the best source for discontinued work. We occasionally revisit discontinued designs at our sole discretion and do not accept requests or one-off commissions.

To ensure the proper continued operation and fit of your puzzles, please check out our product care guide. We recommend an occasional polishing with Rennaisance Wax to keep wood puzzles in top condition.

Glad to have it!

Not a huge fan of trick bolts yet (Nut Case Hanayama nearly put me in a rubber room), but this one proved to be an exception! The aha is like magic. I trust this will be an excellent element in a future mechanical puzzle hunt/box I'm planning for my kids when they're older... already psyched.
