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.

Lock Box is an incredibly special puzzle that is beautifully crafted with a complex mechanism that will challenge even the most experienced puzzlers. The mixed media of wood and aluminum is a unique touch that adds to the puzzle's aesthetic appeal. Although it took some time to solve, the journey was full of satisfying 'a-ha' moments that kept me engaged throughout. This puzzle is a wonderful addition to any collection and truly showcases Eric Fuller's skill as a designer
