A Hardy-Fardy Puzzle

This was the hardest fucking puzzle I've ever solved in my life.  It took me about a day to figure out.  (And that was without any trial-and-error, which is a blasphemous approach.)

I kept messing up the puzzle and having to start over.  And then, when I finally solved it, I hit "Restart" and solved it again, just to make sure I hadn't gotten lucky.  Then I solved it again, just to make sure I hadn't gotten lucky a second time. 

There are other puzzles on the channel that I haven't solved yet, and I have to decide just how much time I'm willing to sink into something which I can't solve.  Like...at what point do I say "Fuck it" and just watch how the guy in the video does it?
