I can't get all five tumblers lined up at the top. Just how do you *correctly* click on each one? I can get some to stay up, but I don't know what I did except to click like crazy. Do the circles have anything to do with lining up the pick?

You need to tap each one twice. Once to push it up and and as it is going up, tap it again to lock it. I think you have to do it in a different order; so you need to experiment. Don't just do it from 1 to 5. You might have to try 1, 3, 5, 2, 4. I can't remember the order, but it will probably be different anyway for you. If they all fall down, try with a different order. Hope that helps. Fun game.

What i did was watch the spring on top of the tumblers, as soon it was squeezed all together i clicked instant for them to lock, but let it go up a few times to see when its the right time, since the others wont fall down unless u missclick.

But i did it 5-4-3-2-1 dont think it really matters.

I still can't get it. I don't know where to line up my cursor to work the puzzle. I can get the wire to move under a tumbler, but the hand cursor is all over the place not really pointing to anything, not even the wire, yet if I click I sometimes can get a tumbler to stay up but don't know why it does. I also don't see any springs on top of the tumblers. Maybe my eyes aren't good enough or I don't recognize any springs. Mostly I get the wire lined up under a tumbler and try to click twice as fast as I can and sometimes that works, but most of the time, not.

After the first click and it begins to go up, time your second click when it reaches the top.
No need to click so very fast smile

After the first one is in place, just move your mousepointer under the next one and repeat.

Just what do I click on? I can get the tip of the wire under a tumbler but my hand cursor is nowhere near the wire. It can be almost anywhere. If I click on a tumbler with the hand, the tip of the wire is under a different tumbler which makes no sense to me. I feel like I may be missing something obvious that I just don't see? Sometimes I get one tumbler to stay at the top and with my first click on another one it comes down before I even get a chance to click twice. Other times I can click several times and move the wire to different tumblers before the one that is up comes down. There just isn't any pattern to this that I can find.

You shouldn't click on the tumblers! Keep your mouse close to the wire while clicking
At first just click one time and then wait to get the 'rythm' of the tumbler - you can repeat that without penalty
This is a tricky one - I think you get three chances of the 'second click' with each tumbler, but if you fail all three, you've got to start from scratch again
I don't think the order matters

Yeah, just hold your mouse pointer UNDER the tumblers and click.

Take a deep breath and then click under the first one (it goes up) and click.
Move to under the next one and click (it goes up) and click...etc.

You can do it laugh

Many, many thanks, Moogie, zak, misslilo, and nanette ...
Putting together all the hints and concentrating on them helped me get the puzzle to work. I think maybe all that strong concentration focused my brain, my eyes, and my hand on the wire and gave me the right timing. I was going to delete the game after giving it just this last chance, never really expected it to work out the way it did.

Good for you!! Keep up your good work, it's really a fun game - despite some not-too-easy minigames... but all the more satisfaction to beat them eventually!
