I have a fairly basic Ring and Wooden Post puzzle that I can usually solve. However, at a recent family gathering (pre-Covid); the ring was tangled into a weird spot and I cannot figure it out. Here is a link to what the puzzle actually is: https://www.instructables.com/id/Eureka-Puzzle/

Here are some pictures of where the ring is stuck:

    $\begingroup$ Looks like the position at the halfway mark on the "solution" video on the link you posted. Isn't it? $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Jun 8 '20 at 18:58

    $\begingroup$ Looks like a good time to whip out a saw if you ask me $\endgroup$ – Ankit Jun 9 '20 at 1:31

    $\begingroup$ Agh, I recognize this position. Unfortunately this puzzle gives me a headache and I cannot even remotely recall how to get out of this. $\endgroup$ – greenturtle3141 Jun 9 '20 at 2:06

It seems you just need to pass the disk of the "red bead" side through the slit and pull the ring up.
