Thread the puzzle through a buttonhole and remove it

"The Buttonhole Puzzle is an old topology puzzle of unknown design. The puzzle works by being slid through a button hole in a specific way (directions included). After it is "installed" on a jacket, purse or backpack, it looks simple to remove...however, the victim soon finds that it's not a simple as it looks! This puzzle can be baffling unless you think outside the box!" -Eric Fuller
