Customer Comments: The Tripwire Puzzle

From: Dale S., Sherman, TX

I know it has been more than 6 months since I bought the "Tripwire" puzzle and I still have not mastered it! I have solved it by getting the string off and back on again about 3 different times (and what a great feeling that is!), but there have been numerous hours of playing with it in between those times that I could not solve it.

In fact, twice I have gotten the string so twisted and wrapped up that my only hope was to undo the string from the ball, remove the string from the wire part, and put it all back together again!

It would be nice to know how to get rid of one of those twists as soon as I get it, but it seems I end up just adding another twist to the string. That is why I am now writing to request the solution to this puzzle.

I was able to get the string off but now I can't get it back on! Can you give me the steps to do this - I've been trying to for 1 1/2 years!
