The Okamoto Latch Cube II is a 3x3 cube that is only capable of turning clockwise on two of its faces. Once you turn it clockwise, a latching mechanism will prevent the side from turning the opposite direction of the arrows. These constraints lead to bandaging and make scrambling and solving it a fun and unique challenge.

Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

The puzzle turns so unbelieveably poorly that is is absolutely useless for anything other than a mantle piece. You can't get more than one turn without the centers popping off. Lockups are common. Even when you can turn it, it's so stiff that it just isn't fun to turn. The original Latch Cube did not suffer from these problems, so I'm not sure what happened with the design, but Calvin's Puzzles really dropped the ball on these.
