Is anyone familiar with this effect? It's as much puzzle as it is trick.

Here's the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izQwKp0GPms

Evidently, this was put out by a German magic shop, and the website listed on the package is defunct. After lots of searching, I have not been able to find any instructions for this effect, free or otherwise. Is anyone familiar with this who would know where/how I can learn it? Thanks.

Thanks, that item made from a fork and a card looks impressive. Do you want to learn how to make impossible objects? Usually it's not a trick so much as a manufacturing process.

I'm also intrigued by that trick/effect/puzzle, and after some searching I found that this effect is used in the trick "Forksaken":

However, I am only interested in the fork/card part, not the rest of the trick. Then I found the fork/card effect on another site at a very reasonable price, it's just that the site seems to not work properly:
