Visual Description

Lock Puzzles come in a great variety and the amount of tricks that puzzle engineers implement in them is amazing.

Sometimes I think that that the amount of possible tricks that can be fitted inside the lock is limited and as some point puzzle locks will just die out as a sort of puzzle genre. But every time I stumble upon a new lock puzzle — there is an absolutely new trick there that you haven’t even thought about before.

That’s exactly the case with HoKey CoKey trick lock by Two Brass Monkeys as you will never guess what’s up with that until you try literally everything.

The lock itself looks like a simple average brass lock with a neat looking bottle opener and 2 keys attached to it.

Bottle openers are usually of different colors, but the model seems to be the same across all HoKeys CoKeys.

Main Features

Two keys look nearly identical, but you will be able to spot a small difference (one has more “teeth” than the other).

Other than that the puzzle prohibits the usage of external tools so you all you have on your hands are the keys and the bottle opener to deal with the lock. Also, of course the lock itself can be a tool.

The solution to this puzzle is quite unique and you will really have to think outside of the box to solve it.

The main idea here is to try every possible way that you can think of and use every crazy idea that might come to your mind to your advantage. Honestly, at some point, you will be able to uncover the amazing solutions and it will definitely bring a great and rewarding feeling.

Though, if you are a super experienced puzzle lock solver — you might understand what’s the solution is pretty quickly. But that’s just a theory.
