Not necessarily bob.

The two ball bearings that go below the maze-assembly each fit into their own raceway. As long as you put each of these in their own, separate raceway, there may be hope. (Not sure if that even matters)

Hold the Isis with the plunger facing down, and roll it in your hand until both bbs fall into their respective half-holes, you'll know this is accomplished when you can't hear them rolling around anymore.

In one motion swing it down onto a hard surface while keeping the two bbs in their half-holes.

With any luck the maze-assembly will stay stuck in the down position, allowing you to open the Isis without freeing the first bb that is meant to go through the maze. You may have to do this a few times with varied degrees of force in order to avoid it rebounding, and hence resetting.

The point here is that you're circumventing the use of the plunger all together.

There used to be a video on youtube showing this method for solving the Isis, however I wasn't able to find one.

It should also be noted that there have been a few different variations in the design of the Isis, but this method works for mine.

To summarize.

Hold Isis with plunger facing the palm of your hand.

Make sure the plunger is facing the ground.

(hold it like you're doing a shot put)

Roll in your hand to get the bbs to go into their half-holes.

Swing up, and then down in an arc, and strike something hard.

Hopefully it'll get stuck, and you can take it apart.

-I hope this has been helpful,

The clues are a simple letter substitution cypher. Pretty easy to solve if you try.
