  • - What's up guys and welcome back.
  • Now I've done a lot of puzzles on this channel
  • but today's puzzle is very special.
  • There's a German locksmith puzzle maker,
  • named Rainer Popp.
  • Rainer's famous for making one lock puzzle a year
  • and to get one of these locks,
  • you have to be extremely lucky because your
  • basically entered in a lottery,
  • you receive an email and once you have that email
  • you have a chance to purchase one of these locks,
  • which are not cheap.
  • I myself wasn't lucky enough to be part of this email
  • lottery, however, my friends over at Puzzle Master
  • had one left in stock.
  • What I'm gonna read next is an excerpt from a blog
  • called, Boxes and Boos, I'll link the blog below
  • but this guy puts into words exactly why
  • this puzzle is so special.
  • "Because of his skill and creativity,
  • many believe that he is the greatest puzzle lock
  • maker living today.
  • He hands turns and mills every piece he designs himself
  • from solid brass and stainless steel.
  • His limited edition locks, which he names simply,
  • in a numbered sequence, starting from his first
  • trick lock, T1, has become highly sought after
  • collector items.
  • He may truly have outdone himself with the latest
  • offering, the T11, which has been hailed
  • as the greatest trick lock ever created.
  • This lock is large at 140 millimeters high and heavy,
  • weighing in at two kilos, it is fashioned
  • like a medieval fortress with a solid fortification
  • and studs all over.
  • As you explore and discover, you are reminded more
  • of a concentric castle from the middle ages.
  • Castle within a castle, if you will
  • and the key to the castle is also a thing of beauty.
  • Large and stylish with a clever T11 logo imprinted
  • on the tip, which is somewhat ironic
  • as there is no obvious keyhole.
  • You are given one hint along with the lock,
  • which is to use the key in the keyhole.
  • This lock's an inspiration from Yale's magic lock,
  • famous lock mechanism invented around 1850,
  • by Linus Yale Junior,
  • one of the pioneers of modern day mechanical locks.
  • There are many steps required and they're fitting
  • for a trick lock as they're reminiscent
  • of picking a lock, requiring perfectly precise
  • positioning and timing.
  • There are so many unexpected movements
  • and amazing developments in this puzzle
  • and even a leap of faith, which is rewarded
  • is a true panic, T11 is truly one louder than the rest.
  • Compared to other locks like the Dan lock,
  • which might be described as scoring a 10 on 10
  • point scale, this goes to an 11."
  • Ladies and gentlemen, it's now time to try
  • and solve the greatest puzzle lock in history.
  • I just got the chills.
  • Let's go.
  • Ow.
  • This is it.
  • Oh my, dude, this things weighs, this thing is so heavy.
  • Look at that, look.
  • It's so heavy and it comes with this key,
  • which is a really neat key.
  • Okay so I have no clue where to start on this.
  • Noticing right now that this thing turns
  • and there's a little black dot, as you can see,
  • a little black dot and the black dot
  • goes from here to here, here to here.
  • This one spins either direction to infinity,
  • this one as well.
  • You do not move.
  • This one is a little bit loose on the top.
  • This one does not turn.
  • These do not turn and these do not turn.
  • So the only moving part, there's a bit of a gap
  • here so I know that, that might want to
  • so that probably could have something to do with this.
  • I also hear that there are traps.
  • There's traps in here that are like impossible
  • to get out of so hopefully I don't fall
  • into any of those traps.
  • Also you can pull it out a little bit, just a tad bit.
  • Oh, here we go.
  • Oh baby, look at that, right there.
  • So oh, and that one comes out.
  • Okay, what does that mean?
  • Maybe I'll pull this one out like that and now
  • maybe these three pegs here lock these three pegs?
  • Ow.
  • I'm holding onto this one because I'm,
  • it's the only really, the only moving thing
  • that I've discovered aside from this one turning here
  • hoping that by pulling it and doing something else
  • it'll help me out.
  • It's really giving me nothing to go on here.
  • The key is interesting.
  • I wonder if there's a magnet.
  • Not seem to be a magnet there.
  • Wait, I know.
  • That's what we gotta go, we gotta spin it.
  • Maybe not.
  • You know what I forgot?
  • I forgot the timer.
  • Always forget the timer.
  • I think we were probably already like 10 minutes in.
  • Oh now this one's turning, this one wasn't turning before.
  • This one turns too?
  • Okay, now it stopped turning.
  • There's something heavy in there.
  • Now this is turning.
  • Okay so the way to open this uses these knobs on the side
  • 'cause these knobs here are now turning.
  • Like these three on this side, there's like
  • a clear resistance to when I start turning them
  • like there's like pulling or pushing onto something heavy
  • or weighing down and then depending on that,
  • I'm sure it affects these bolts here.
  • How do I know which ones affected?
  • This button pushes in a tad bit.
  • Like I mean, I could probably just unscrew these bolts
  • but I won't do that.
  • Where's the fun in that?
  • Where's the fun in any of this?
  • Let's be honest right now.
  • I feel like I'm just going around in circles.
  • It's starting to hurt my fingers.
  • This key is not made in one solid piece so I don't
  • know if it comes apart or it's just made to look like that.
  • Oh my God, it's giving me nothing.
  • That's, it's just, this is clearly the side
  • that's gonna have to like come off and move.
  • Now they're stuck, they're live heavy.
  • Trying different orientations, see if that'll work.
  • This one is so hard to turn,
  • I don't know if it's 'cause it's missing grease or.
  • So it's a few hours later in the day,
  • I decided to come back to this, take a little break,
  • got caught up in some work.
  • So I had a few thoughts while I was away,
  • often times if you just stop, you can think of
  • maybe something else.
  • So this one pulls out and this one turns like this,
  • that's it, it stops here, goes here
  • so it's like a quarter turn.
  • This one just turns randomly without
  • any resistance whatsoever.
  • On the other side these ones all turn
  • but there is a bit of resistance,
  • especially this last one here.
  • It turns but like it's, there's something heavy
  • attached to that, makes it really hard to turn
  • so I'm gonna just try turning these in different ways.
  • It doesn't really do anything.
  • Also, I'm just constantly checking the front part
  • to see if anything might unhinge.
  • Oh weird so this little, it's not a button really
  • but I feel like it's loose, this here
  • but if I push in and up, it gets stuck,
  • I don't know what that means.
  • I feel like that's just like, uh, this thing.
  • I feel like that's just the mechanism on the inside.
  • Why didn't I just put it there in the first place?
  • For every puzzle video, right there, why not?
  • There's like a bar in here tapping this stuff.
  • This is gonna bug me if I got to bed tonight
  • and I don't open it.
  • If it look on the inside, I can see those pegs,
  • especially this one here, I can see that.
  • Oh, I don't know what to try.
  • This one has to be the first one to like,
  • I have to find a way to unlock whatever way that is.
  • This thing is pretty cool looking though, isn't it?
  • It's a very cool looking.
  • Something very interesting upon very close inspection
  • is that you're not, I don't know if you can see this
  • but the lines underneath this brass piece,
  • alright let it focus, the lines underneath that
  • brass piece makes it so that this couldn't
  • be pushed down because like this piece
  • is bigger than the hole that's underneath.
  • But on this side, it looks like and I can probably
  • confirm that the hole is bigger than this
  • on all three here.
  • Doesn't look like the hole is
  • yeah underneath, it's definitely so these
  • either these push in or this comes out somehow.
  • Same goes for here, I don't know if that means anything or.
  • Maybe not, I don't know.
  • Notice the second I push on it and I can't twist it,
  • I can only twist it if it's out.
  • If I start pushing on it, just even a little bit,
  • there's no twisting them.
  • I just keep trying the same things over and over again,
  • expecting different results, hopefully unlocking
  • a random pattern that opens this but I,
  • I just don't know where to go from here.
  • I've gotten to this, this and then these things turn.
  • This is the only one that seems like it's
  • not attached to anything.
  • Oh.
  • Oh, did I just spin that top?
  • Ha!
  • Now this one's stuck, it won't pull out anymore.
  • Oh my God.
  • Okay, okay, okay.
  • This one maybe?
  • So this is look, look, it's not stuck on there anymore,
  • something changed.
  • This one seems to be moving.
  • Oh.
  • See?
  • It just popped in and now this is out again.
  • Okay, so I was here, lift this, turn this,
  • why isn't it working?
  • I was here, how come I can't recreate it?
  • That's interesting.
  • It's like you're just, it's literally, look it,
  • it's ten pm and I'm sat here figuring this thing out
  • and that I was not expecting before going to bed.
  • That's it, that's all I did and then it like turned more
  • and it locked in, there.
  • Oh.
  • I think that's pretty frustrating.
  • I'm gonna have to go look back at
  • this footage and see what I did.
  • This is really hurting my fingers to be honest.
  • This like pulling this like one thing here.
  • So I figure if I pull this one but not all the way
  • 'cause it got stuck for a second and I think
  • there we go so I pull, it gets stuck.
  • Now this one turned more, we're in a position
  • where that's stuck, that is good.
  • Now what do we do?
  • I don't know, maybe play with these ones?
  • There's something happening here on the inside.
  • I can feel like this tension.
  • Again so the only thing I figured out
  • is this, there.
  • So this normally only does a 90 degree spin,
  • now it does like a 180 when I pull that one up
  • but not all the way.
  • From there, I have no idea what to do.
  • (light music)
  • This whole panel here, you can feel that
  • like there's some give where as this one over here
  • completely solid.
  • I know that this moves out of the way,
  • I can tell, I can just tell there's a hole here,
  • this moves out of the way.
  • This side I'm not so sure about, probably as well,
  • I just need to know how to get this away,
  • maybe that's the last part, I don't know.
  • Oh!
  • Oh what?
  • Oh, hello.
  • Hello, keyhole, oh my God, this thing is glorious.
  • Look at that, alright well now obviously,
  • oh this comes off, okay.
  • So I know for a fact that this puzzle contains traps,
  • okay, this puzzle is known to have a few traps
  • so basically if I do the wrong thing,
  • it's gonna put me in a trap, which will make
  • it twice as hard for me to get out of
  • and this is just so obvious that I feel
  • like it's going to be a trap.
  • Uh, here I go.
  • (dramatic music)
  • Ope, nothing.
  • Ope, oh no.
  • Oh no, oh no, my key's stuck.
  • Oh no, K, whoo.
  • K so for some reason, nothing happens,
  • I can put it in and I can just kind of turn it
  • and it stops there, right there for no reason,
  • there's nothing else I can do.
  • Can't go to the other side, no.
  • So maybe push this in and then turn?
  • Nope, now won't turn at all.
  • Maybe turn these to unlock the key, I don't know.
  • It's so crazy.
  • Ope!
  • What?
  • Okay, well now.
  • Ladies and gentlemen, we seem to have an extra piece.
  • Oh, maybe two extra pieces?
  • Okay, what is happening?
  • Okay this changes everything, this makes things
  • way more complicated but also changes everything
  • so we have this and I noticed at the top here,
  • there is a hole, that doesn't fit in there, okay.
  • There's gotta be a hole for this to fit somewhere, right?
  • Am I right or am I right?
  • Well I've turned it more I think.
  • K so this is the starting position,
  • it stops here but if I pull back,
  • I can turn it even further.
  • Maybe this unlocks the other side,
  • maybe that's what happens.
  • I think I'm just gonna fix my key
  • 'cause it's a lot easier, I knew there was
  • something up with the key, alright, I knew it.
  • You doubted me, but I knew it.
  • One thing I've noticed is that when I push in here,
  • this guy moves around, this here but that
  • doesn't really help me, does it?
  • Yeah, I felt it come out on my finger right there.
  • Is is supposed to come out, is it supposed to go in?
  • Alright so maybe, maybe there's more to this key.
  • Oh, maybe I broke it.
  • Oh, look at that, it actually moved, shifted,
  • still shifting, okay.
  • Oh, there we go.
  • What does that do?
  • I don't know but it does something.
  • Literally just cut myself with that.
  • I need, the thing is I need this to be in there
  • so that I can turn it otherwise,
  • there's not enough grip for me to turn this key.
  • Wha!
  • Look.
  • Look it, look it, look it.
  • I don't know what that did but it did something.
  • Okay.
  • Oh, look at this ladies and gentlemen.
  • This now, I don't know if that did that before
  • but it does it now and it reveals more
  • of these little pressure points here,
  • look at that, look at that.
  • So two of these things are now here as well
  • and they probably move, maybe I can use that pin again.
  • So it doesn't push but when I go here, watch.
  • Oh wow, what the hell's going on?
  • Look it here, so this is where it started, right?
  • Look in here.
  • And then if go here,
  • that's another keyhole.
  • Okay.
  • Still no turning.
  • This is getting so exciting right now.
  • I am actually literally freaking out.
  • I'm kind of dreading putting this all back together
  • to be honest because I'm not sure I remember
  • exactly the steps but I'll watch this video if I need to.
  • Okay, so there's a spring, looks like,
  • yeah, there's a spring in the bottom of this,
  • here keyhole, down there, there's a spring in there.
  • Who comes up with this stuff?
  • Jeez.
  • I don't know what's happening.
  • Maybe it has to do with this piece again.
  • Oh!
  • Oh well hello.
  • That comes out apparently, there we go.
  • We have a thing.
  • There's a thing here and we have it.
  • Oh.
  • Oh, oh, man, this thing is just so intricate,
  • look at this, there's another piece
  • but now I've broken everything.
  • I'm not sure what to do next.
  • Are you guys thinking what I'm thinking?
  • I don't know, this might be one of those traps.
  • Okay, there's gotta be another maybe,
  • maybe I have to put it all back together.
  • I don't know.
  • I've probably just spent the last half an hour
  • looking at this thing contemplating whether
  • or not I should put this piece in there
  • and how I should put it in there is another question.
  • I'm thinking because look in there,
  • you're not gonna be able to see it but there is
  • a notch that goes further and this end here
  • is further out so I'm thinking and this is like
  • that leap of faith moment where I either
  • drop it in this way or drop it in this way
  • and I'm thinking because there's that spring,
  • which I mentioned earlier, which is further down
  • it might have to be this way
  • and I'm just gonna go for it and I'm sure
  • if I get stuck, I'm sure there's a way out
  • but here I go.
  • (dramatic music)
  • And it's gone.
  • And there's no way I'm getting that back.
  • Okay, hoping now I can turn it.
  • Okay but now what?
  • Ah!
  • No.
  • Now the trap!
  • I'm stuck.
  • Oh no, oh no, no, no, no, no.
  • Come on.
  • (groaning)
  • This won't turn.
  • Now it's stuck.
  • K, what's interesting is that this fits in here
  • right but you can turn it any which way
  • and it doesn't actually matter.
  • Maybe now I have to unlock it with these sides here.
  • If I turn this, I can kind of like
  • like here and it drops down a little bit
  • but then it pops back up, I don't know what that means.
  • I don't know what to do.
  • Wait, why isn't this pushing in?
  • What, this is stuck.
  • Why is it stuck?
  • This thing on the bottom seems to be moving a little bit.
  • Oh!
  • There's something clicking.
  • Look at this, there's something going on here.
  • Ah!
  • I'm in shock, I'm in total shock.
  • Okay, well there you have it.
  • I'm in total disbelief right now.
  • This puzzle is insane.
  • This is the craziest lock puzzle I've ever come across
  • and that includes the Dan Lock B.
  • Nuts, how does someone come up with this?
  • If you saw my face right now,
  • I gotta figure out how to get all my pieces back.
  • Alright, let's start the timer.
  • (light music)
  • And we're back to square one, boom, two hours, baby.
  • The T11 pop lock, solved.
  • Okay, well there you have it, ladies and gentlemen.
  • That was the greatest trick lock ever created.
  • Solved in about two hours.
  • I did take quite a few breaks during that time
  • because there's only so much you can do
  • when solving, you can't, you can't just devote
  • you know, a straight two hours, you'll go mad
  • and you'll start, there's, you're just looking
  • at the same pieces over and over again.
  • It's almost like you're going around in circles.
  • The leap of faith part was scary and I think
  • that's what makes this lock really great
  • is that you, much like the Dan lock,
  • when you put that broken piece in,
  • you're kind of left at the mercy of this lock
  • and being like I hope this is what I had to do.
  • A lot of people ask me where I get a lot of my puzzles.
  • I'll leave a link below where you can check out puzzles.
  • Unfortunately this one is sold out
  • and I will keep it on my shelf forever.
  • So thank you for watching.

  • subscribe if you do enjoy the content.
  • We'll see you on the next video.
  • Peace, we're out.
