Impossible joint by Wil Strijbos

This is an example of an impossible object, so called because there appears to be no way to separate the two pieces. To make the puzzle harder, a magnetic lock is inside and it has to be released before the silver and green parts can be separated. Because the idea of this puzzle is to take it apart, people interested in mechanical puzzles also classify this as a Take Apart Puzzle.
