5.0 out of 5 stars A great puzzle,if you don't break it.
This is a fairly common puzzle or as some like to call it a brainteaser.It is made by several different compnies and goes by different names--"Nerves of Steel","Metal Teaser Cage",etc.It has also been produced in wood and plastic. A plastic version is here on Amazon and called "Cage Puzzler".The same idea is used for other trapped or caged things like Hedgehog,Torpedo...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
Concept is great. Instructions fine. Unfortunately even with gentle handling a spike from the satellite came off after day one. Recommend spending on a more expensive, qualitatively better version.

This is a fairly common puzzle or as some like to call it a brainteaser.It is made by several different compnies and goes by different names--"Nerves of Steel","Metal Teaser Cage",etc.It has also been produced in wood and plastic. A plastic version is here on Amazon and called "Cage Puzzler".The same idea is used for other trapped or caged things like Hedgehog,Torpedo ,etc.
When you first pick it up,it looks simple but soon it looks impossible.This is always a good feature for a puzzle or brainteaser.There is no solution given other than to use patience and perserverance.Well, maybe a little clue,look for one of the spaces between bars to be ever so slightly greater.
This is a puzzle that does not require any excessive force;in fact,because of the thin nature of the "spines" ,it can easily be damaged,and rendered useless.
The other reviewer mentioned this happened with him and I found mine with a missing "spine" after it had been passed around a couple of times.I was surprised when someone announced,"This puzzle isn't so hard,it came out without any problem."I soon saw why.
I also mentioned a plastic version ,"Caged Puzzler" which is shown here on Amazon ,and which I also have.It's about twice as large,and seems to be quite strong,but I suspect the "spines" will also break if too much force is applied.Believe it or not,even though I have solved "Trapped Satellite" a number of times;solving this one has eluded me--so far.Also,try as I may;I can't see any difference in the spacing of the bars.Maybe the length of the "spines" is the key to solving it?

Not really that hard to solve. I solved it in under a minute and im normally a spaz when it comes to these kinds of things.The quality is okay for the majority besides the spikes( the feel like if you move the ball inside the wrong way it might bend) Shipped when the company said it shipped and arrived when the company said it would arrive. The only super major complaint I had was that at the time I ordered it, amazon said it would be here December 24th and it didnt come till the 27th which is annoying.

This product was an amazing gift. Although it's not as challenging when u put ur hands on it it's still a great time consumer among family on Christmas morning for the adults to laugh at the members who still can't figure it out.
