The Lotus Box Puzzle

A really beautiful and surprising puzzlebox!

Please subscribe if you like the video!

Finding a copy of "The Lotus Box" will be difficult, as not many were made. Your best bet is to find a collector who has one they're willing to part with, or contact a specialty puzzle shop. I bought mine at Eureka Puzzles in Brookline, MA.


I'm a Top-10 finisher in the US Puzzle Championship and just released a logic puzzle game on Steam! The game is called RYB:

0:11 "They say the goal of this puzzle is to remove the center ring from the nail that goes through it."
2:26 "And now we can take off the ring."
2:40 "But we still have the rest of the puzzle." <--- No you don't! You removed the ring, which was the goal. You won!!!! Go home.

Wow I almost wish I didn't watch this video, because that second coin reveal was awesome. Does the puzzle come with anything that would indicate there's a second coin other than the name?

Author soitswings ( ago)
30 seconds in and i was already overcome by frustration and impatience, and your calm flebian curiosity kept radiating cool vibes which made me wanna rattle this box so hard
ive paused the video at 1.25 to type this comment but oh man i have never looked forward to the solution of something so hard.
love your videos.

Author Orion Hunt ( ago)
that is so cool

Author Roomies Garage ( ago)
new puzzles but this one is way above my abilities. I have built a few puzzles myself and uploaded​ one build video last week. working on filming an original puzzle.

Author ObsessionPC ( ago)
wikipedia says about Puzzle: "a game, toy, or problem designed to test ingenuity or knowledge." So many people are butt hurt about the design of this PUZZLE
The only thing that got me, I had to speak exactly like him during and after the video.

Author Irai Henry ( ago)
Okay. The last part was 👌😃

Author Anthony Guzman ( ago)

how to do solve puzzles in less than a minute:
1. put it on the floor
2. step on it
3. if step 2 didn't work, just hit it, crush it, or find another way to break it.

Author the phangirl ( ago)
this is legitimately the coolesr video I've seen in days

Author Иван Яскевич ( ago)
hate puzzles like that. dont think that "puzzle" even a correct word here, looks more like a code lock - you can solve it only if you know the solution or somehow randomly.

Author DRS_ au ( ago)
This is not so much of a puzzle as it's more like a lock. Anything with innards that are not visible with a naked eye can only be a lock. Balls, needles and other types of blocking instruments inside the item do not make this a puzzle. Its a lock.

Author Alex Willis ( ago)
The lotus flower blooms twice, hence the second part of the puzzel

Hi matey, where would I be able to purchase this puzzle box?

Author SarahPotato 361 ( ago)
This hurts my brain.

Author danny lam ( ago)
Another way of solving it is being like Penny from BBT and throwing the puzzle box down to the ground.

Author 0MindSwept0 ( ago)
That's some coin purse, too bad it only holds 2 coins

Author Cat ( ago)
0:24 that's what she said...

Author bike freakz ( ago)
you do all that to get one coin

Author J.London ( ago)
I really want to give you a tissue so you can blow your nose lol

Author Jordan Feingold-Link ( ago)
I love the journey of this puzzle.

This scratches both the 'puzzle' itch as well as the 'beautifully machined metal' itch. It makes me wish that ClickSpring would try making puzzles on his channel. The difficulty of this puzzle is directly related with the quality of the craftsmanship, as some of the hidden compartments are hidden by careful polishing!

I'm glad that you shared this. There is no way I would have seen it elsewhere.

Puzzle design of this Lotus Box by Wil Strijbos.

this has got to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing puzzles ive seen. and im not really a puzzle guy. thanks for sharing/creating.

Here's the proper way of explaining this puzzle: find out why it's called the lotus ring.

starting off saying this puzzles primary goal is to take the nail out of the ring and describing the other parts as additions or extra just doesn't work.

it's the lotus box. keyword: box.

Author Yuan Chen ( ago)
Well, that's not lotus, that's chrysanthemum. Because that is a Chinese 0.5 Yuan. Anyway, good video and good puzzle box.

Author deshtom ( ago)
How exactly does the spin move actually do something to solve the puzzle? Like, what is the mechanism that the spin move affects in order to unlock it?

Author Darrick White ( ago)
William Strijbos is the creator of this puzzle box. Its currently out of stock in most places, but some of his other puzzles aren't, and worth taking a try to solve.

Author John Hernandez ( ago)
Almost looks like a dugout

Author Jamel Somerville ( ago)
after the spoiler break

Author Slushie Fox ( ago)
where can I but one?

Author Kevin Vu ( ago)
if the middle area was transparent...this puzzle would feel much better.

unable to see the mechanics of the box and expecting you to spin It?

I can see why not many of these were made. the goal of the puzzle is hidden away, the methods are obscure and nothing feels "satisfying".

Author Nicholas Horrex ( ago)
this guy sounds like the guy from Rick and Morty who tells us how to make the plumbus
