"Although it looks relatively modest on the outside, this is a phenominally difficult puzzle box to open. It is by far the most difficult box I have produced for the public. The initial design was so difficult I ended up somewhat crippling the full mechanism by removing another locking facet (7 copies of the original design are available; look for the Ultimate Triple Lock Box). Beginning with simple sliding panel moves, the solvers task is to find the key and use it to disengage the concealed locks which prevent it from opening further. Although the metal parts of the mechanism are never revealed, this box would not have been possible without my recent metalwork experience. Once again, the simple appearance of this box belies the amount of work poured into its craftsmanship and construction. It is a very, very difficult puzzle. You have been warned :)" -Eric Fuller
