Yeah, great puzzle lock indeed! Had a mechanical setback that withheld me from solving it. But my conviction helped me overcome this unintended obstacle.
Every step closer to the solution raises a new challenge until it's finaly solved.
They're available on Etsy; grab it if you haven't allready!

Such a good puzzle! I love the sort of infinite loop of impossibility you get stuck in. Took me awhile to get that last portion.

Aaah thanks for the tip, but....to be honest, I stick to only the Danlock for now, I am not so fond of the wanderer actually, just a small personal dislike :)

Well, unfortunately I saw a tutorial of it and I just dont like the mechanism. It is good and clever, but not something that makes me go wow and I need that.
I was disappointed in the secret to be honest and that is not because the puzzle is bad, it is because the taste for mechanisms is personal, I for instance am totally fond of very tiny mechanisms, combining parts into new parts to get further in solving, for example.

What I like about the Danlock is that it looks like a normal lock, this is quite probably also the only tricklock I will buy.
