As the name implies, there is a hidden trick inside the cylinder puzzle. There is absolutely no hint or clue on how to start from the outside appearance. If there is one hint that we can provide, it is to go about it as if you were cracking open a safe. Enjoy finding the solution while pretending to be a spy cracking open a safe with a shaken not stirred martini by your side. The theme is "lock".

What a nice little puzzle! I think it is very similar to "Cast Nutcase". It seems there is not strictly one solution, due to the symmetry of two pairs of the pieces. I also solved it once, but had difficulties on my second go. After it, however, I figured out what should be done. I do not recommend it to people with weak nerves, though.
I recommend Cast Cylinder because the design gives you absolutely no hint on how to open the puzzle. I fiddled around with it for about 30 minutes before I got the first "move." It didn't take too long after that to get it completely apart. Getting it back together might be a little more difficult.
