Product Info

An intriguing and hefty metal puzzle lock designed by Wil Strijbos!  The front of the lock bears the name "Revenge Lock", as well as the signature of its designer, as well as his Streetwise branding.  This puzzle is also known as "The Wanderer".  A perfect puzzle for the collector!

Inspired by the puzzle by Gary Foshee, (the "Lunatic Lock"), Wil Strijbos (with permission) created a look-alike lock with a modified internal mechanism - the Revenge Lock.  At the time, (1990's), 20 or 30 Revenge locks were made.  After revamping this puzzle several years ago, Wil thought he was ready for production.  The Wanderer came to test his lock and solved it in an impossible way.  This caused Wil to redesign the internal mechanism to force the solver to start from the correct position, with no chance of starting halfway through. (When the lock is in the frame, it is in the starting position) To add even more control to the positions along the way, he put a Wanderer inside - which is why the name changed from Revenge Lock to "The Wanderer".

The challenges in this lock are described in two parts:    
First Part:
1- Discover your Number
2 - Open the Shackle
3 - Remove the Brass Key
4 - Find the Tiny Wanderer    
Second Part:
5 - Replace the Wanderer - Brass Key - Shackle
6 - Put the Lock back in the Frame.
7 - Fix the Lock back into the Frame.

There are no magnets, no banging required, no force needed, and no external tools required.
Size:  78mm x 100mm (height to the top of the shackle) x 20mm

Another great lock that collectors must have! 10 out of 10 Please note that the Wanderer is very small...... And trust me he will get away from you. Make sure you are in a area that is open and clean when solving. If your sitting on the couch and the Wanderer decides to wander your couch will be part of the puzzle whether you like it or not!

I own a bunch of spendy puzzle locks, and though this one looks less fancy, it is one of my favorites. It has a solid feel, looks great, and is super fun to solve. I had a helluva time with the "remove shackle" step. Embarrassed to admit that it took me at least 5 hours just for this part. That said, it felt great to finally solve it. Also great was the feeling of having put it back together after mussing around for probably way too long. Definitely worth the money. I am actually surprised that at the time of writing this review it hasn't sold out yet. Love this lock
