Topless Box by Eric Fuller was my contribution to the legendary Apothecary Puzzle Chest. Topless is an unusual challenge; with two lids and no top, how can it be opened? The solution is tricky and will surprise you. Originally released in 2012, we found strong demand with our re-release last year and decided to make one more batch for newer collectors who have been unable to find a copy.
No bumping, banging, shaking, spinning, gravity moves, or excessive force is necessary or allowed.

This is a fantastic puzzle. A very clever mechanism and the craftsmanship is out of this world.
I think I opened it 10 times in a row as soon as I found out how it works :-) Truly an amazing puzzle!
Great craftsmanship, fast shipping, wonderful puzzle. Fantastic quality box. Like so much, thanks to Eric for his great designs
Great puzzle. Logic is all that’s necessary to solve it. Ingenious design, devilishly simple for a complex mind.
