Encountering this particular puzzle was a very fun experience, something different than the experiences I’ve had with other wire puzzles.
The task you are given is to remove the ring from the spring, and I’ll tell you right away that rotating the ring to pull it off the spring isn’t the solution.
This is doable (albeit with the use of a certain force), but it is not the way to solve this puzzle.
Now that the easiest (and most invasive) option is off the table, this puzzle becomes a lot more mystical.
If you just think that the ring is pretty fixed inside the spring and needs to be released somehow, that’s pretty intriguing isn’t it?
Besides, once you figure out how to take the ring off, you can use this puzzle as a magic trick.
You can easily poke your friends with this gimmick and blow their minds – they'll be annoyed! :D
How the trick looks in action, see here.
Since this puzzle provides lots of fun even after you figure it out, it deserves a very high position in my ranking.
