Excuse my photography.
This collection was completed a few days after I found out the popplocks existed, pieced together from lock and puzzle collectors all over the world through much diligence and detective work, except for the T6, which took a couple more weeks to find.
T2 - ~15 minutes
T3 - 3 hours
T4 - 7.5 hours on/off
T5 - ~20 minutes
T6 - 9 hours on/off
T7 - ~20 seconds
I was really disappointed with the T2. The puzzle itself seemed very linear, so I opened it very quickly, despite hearing about the difficulty. The T3 threw me for a rather long loop, and I was quite surprised as I heard it was really easy. The T4 was actually the first lock I bought, and it took me a very long time. The T5 was cake and it's probably my favorite, but I think all the locks are pretty equally clever and satisfying. The T6 was REALLY tough. I figured out all the components necessary for the solve in about 5 minutes, and took a very long time on the final step. The T7 literally took 20 seconds out of the box, but the craftsmanship is so wonderful, that it is worth buying, plus you can't have an incomplete Popplock collection
Later this week, I think I'll be making a dedicated lock collection post, including all my tricklocks and unique padlocks.
