Two keys appear to be permanently linked and, no matter how you look at it, there is seemingly no solution to unlocking them. However, as a highly popular puzzle since its creation during the 19th century puzzle craze, the keys are in fact separable.
The hint is "Enlarge".

Very easy. Unlike other Hanayama puzzles, this isn't a maze so much as an entanglement puzzle. So there are no dead ends or wrong paths. Either you are solving it correctly, or the pieces aren't moving. Figuring out the first move is probably the toughest. The rest just comes naturally. Still, it's a nice piece and looks good on the puzzle shelf.

Very easy, but still quite fun. Ideal for beginners.
Advanced puzzlers can try solving it without looking, behind their back or with one hand to provide a bit bigger challenge.
The "tooth" area is prone to wear if used a lot, and if the gap gets big enough (just one or two mm bigger) then it falls apart by itself.

It was interesting at first. After playing with it for a few minites it was so simple. Get the first step down and the rest is easy.
