  • Turn the top row so that each corner is roughly halfway between the sides

  • Push the pieces up until they pop out of the cube, then, slide the rest out

  • Repeat this process until you clear the level

  • You should be able to just directly pull out the rest of the blocks, like so

  • And there you have it!

  • You'll have the center piece, with the six centers of the six sides, the turning mechanism

  • To reassemble, snap all the pieces back into place, and try not to rotate the faces.

  • It helps to start with the middle pieces first

  • Don't be afraid to use force!

  • Once you have the middle pieces in it's pretty simple to just push in the corner pieces

  • Again- don't be afraid to use force!

I hated this thing. I disassembled mine with a .22 hollow point at 100 yards. Yes, It felt great!
