      @Aziz Setyawan I agree he was very disrespectful to the guy, but I don't understand why would you bring India/Indians in these? Every country has good and bad citizens, and judging by your surname you are from Indian sub-continent as well (sorry in advance if you're not).

    I actually have this puzzle. The ring on mine is circular and not triangular, and the cuffs themselves are iron horseshoes. My dad bought it when we went to a Cracker Barrel once. Also, the horseshoes are connected a bit more distantly, by two five-link lengths of iron chain. The links on either end are welded to the prongs of the horseshoes, leaving three loose links between them on each side. The distance allows for greater maneuverability and an easier way of getting the ring off. You start by giving one of the horseshoes a half-twist (180°) in either direction, then sliding the horseshoes next to each other in a way that allows the ring to fall into the right place on its own. (Also, the ring on mine is smaller compared to the cuffs on my version than the one shown in this clip is compared to the cuffs on its version.)

      @Sweet Misery welcome to the real world.
      I am very coordinated, agile, nut I never did the RUbix cube.
      Got close, but at s friends house liming, and driver said we have to go.
      Anytime I saw a RUbix cube after that I just gave it to someone else to try.
      So I'm lousy at that.
      I run out of patience.

      I have the same one I have three different rings that came with it and it gradually gets smaller and more difficult. This is my favorite puzzle and it was the first my father ever bought me.

    If you see this in 3D, it becomes a little bit easyer to follow what's happening. The solution is that the trangle can only slide among one way to a point where there is just less friction enough left between the two parts that with just a little pressure, the triangle can disattach itself from the handcuffs. This principle is used also in the puzzle with the to little iron rods that are twisted in a curl at one end. you have to align them in each the opposite position and the also pressure and turn just a little to ger them loose from eachother. But again, in 2D it is very hard to grap for the brain what happens, because it is impossible to see 3D-deprh in a 2D frame. The fact that the puzzle is one coloured, makes difficult for jour brain to distinguish the elements your eyes register from each other... 🙂

    Idea: try recording yourself solving a puzzle in silence so that the recording of the hand cuffs is clear. And then do voice over. This way you don't hiccup when talking due to trying hard to focus on the puzzle. Should result in higher video quality as well as lower stress while recording.

    I found your videos amazing because when you show each puzzle I just imagine a mathematical/teacher/scientist/smart person in general bored as hell and coming up with the idea... "What if I build a puzzle? To test not only if I'm able to create one but if I'm able to solve it and then other people can try it"

    The handcuffs police used to use in America about 20 years ago I was able to break the chain links in between the cuffs. I did this many times practicing and then once in a real arrest situation. It helps if you are strong but first you slide your hands under your butt and get them in front of you. Then you move the cuffs to the end of your shoe and lock your wrists at a twisted angle. It’s going to hurt a little but you use your bodies full momentum with your leg pushing and your arms pulling with your back and wrists locked and it snaps one of the links in between the cuffs. With modern cuffs with no links this does not work. The police cuffed me and put me in the back of the car. They then walked away and were speaking with their Sgt. While this was happening I snapped the cuffs and when the police walked back to the car I put my hands behind my back as if I was still cuffed. When we got to the jail and they opened the door I showed them my hands and they were shocked. I was fully cooperative though so the police did not beat me.

    Is a little piece of the triangle that goes in so then you can take the triangle off and put it back on I could tell because there's a little line on the metal where the area that can go in is
