Does anyone have a solution to the lock puzzle for sheriff's office. The strategy guide I am afraid to say is not very helpful unless I am missing something. It just shows the picture with no way to solve it.

Ramona, could you give me the page number on the strategy guide for this puzzle? This might help jog my memory about how you solve it. wave

It doesn't give the page number. It shows 62% complete. It is one of those lock mechanism puzzles. I had to use a bobby pin to pick the lock.

ramona, you have to get all the locks out of the center at the same time. the locks move at different rates. You need to click the slower ones first and the faster ones later. It does take trial and error. I solved it by counting how long each lock took to return to their starting positions. Hope this helps, if this is the puzzle you are referring to.

No, this one comes up after the trip to the coroner's office. A bobby pin and screwdriver are used. I wish the guide at least gave an explanation of the puzzle.

Is this the safe in the sheriff's office, where it talks about a fishing spot?

If so,

the clue is found in the previous room, on a map on the wall.

You said you used the bobby pin. Have you used the screwdriver as well? wave

Sorry about this, Ramona - it's frustrating not being able to reference this in the strategy guide. frown

Yes, used both and now at part where use bobby pin to tap the mechanism. Usually with these puzzles,you have to tap one in a certain order to get them to lock into place. It is frustrating. I will try a little while longer and then go to the Murder She Wrote game.

Well folks I finished the game and have to say finding the morphing objects was the most fun. It was the first MCF HOG that I rushed through just to finish. I have high hopes though for the next year's game. All the games have been excellent and no one can be perfect all of the time.
