If you're lunatic, don't try this lock

This trick lock was designed by Gary Foshee and was sold by Eureka.
No keys are provided because no keys are needed ;-)
And usually the keys provided with trick locks are sot useful (or at least not useful for the beginning of the solving process). However, with almost trick locks, some keys are provided, here it is not the case. And thus, you can wonder how to open it, and it will definitely surprise your friends! The good thing of not having any keys is that you cannot lost them.

Any idea why it's called "Lunatic"??

Try to move the lock upside down, try to pull out the rod. You motice that sometimes the rod is blocked. Don't worry, you have not broken the puzzle, it's normal!

Once opened you can see how simple the mechanism is but it's really tricky and very smart: you need good precision to solve your lock.

Even knowing the solution by heart, it can take me a bit of time to open it, but you can repeatedly open this lock.

WARNING : the following link is a spoiler of how to solve it. It is very well explained.

To conclude, this lock is very good, cheap enough, with a simple but tricky mechanism.
If you like trick locks, don't hesitate to buy one, it is a must-have in your collection and you can easily find it on the internet.
And even if you don't like so much trick locks, it is still worth the case buying and trying it!
