Weblog > The “A” Puzzle
The “A” Puzzle is a rather simple looking puzzle but is a bit trickier than it looks. I played with it for a while without removing the long handle from the “A”. A second attempt took a little extra thought and maneuvering but it was then seen how it could come off. Like all wire puzzles, they seem impossible and only “brute Force” and bending the wire will accomplish solving it. Such force, is not needed and using it will only destroy the puzzle.
This puzzle is quite popular and has been around for many years. It is made by several companies and the quality can vary, depending on the thickness of the wire used. It is often called the “A” Puzzle for various obvious reasons.
