Same for me. Was really enjoying the graphics and the atmosphere, but then came up against the lock pieces. I even restarted the game, followed the strategy guide, combined the pieces in the order as suggested, but the lock didn't close up, it seems to remain as an incomplete item in the inventory. When I use a hint it simply highlights the very centre of the lock. Neither I can I find an "active" area on the lock. So, I also remain stuck.

I have the same problem. Found all the necessary parts, put them together and the key will not close. The hint zooms into the centre but I cannot find anything further to do. I was so, so looking forward to this game. It is one of the best series in this genre.

Same here. The lock is put together but still shows in inventory as an incomplete item. Hint highlights the center of the lock. Can't go forward which is just a shame.

Make sure that you click to open the broken lock and not just place the items on top (if that's the case) and be sure to close it when you are done fixing it otherwise it will stay in (plus) mode. I am saying that because I tried putting the items without opening it first lol. (ETA)

There is also a broken lock piece that you also need to add, besides the spring and gear. You will find it by zooming in the area to the right of the Blackrow Mansion (where there is a skeleton and a pile of leaves). You will find some useful items there including the broken lock piece. Add that piece and you will be good to go.

Hope this helps anyone!

PS. I am also really enjoying this game and already purchased the Collector's Edition. The story is very engaging so far and I can't wait to see what happens next.

I managed to close the key. The first time I played, I played the second difficulty. This time I played the easy game. I noticed when the key was first produced I had to click the centre button to open it. This time when all the items were inserted into the key, I quickly clicked the centre button and it closed ok. Hope this works for you guys as well. I am now off to play one of the best series. However, I do miss their excellent winter scenes.

I added the broken lock piece besides the spring and the gear, but the lock still has the plus sign in my inventory. Too bad

Yes, it works!!!

You just have to click (or double-click) on the centre button and the lock closes.
Thanks a lot!!!

Had the same problem as everyone else so came here to find out if there was someone who had figured it out. Nothing worked for me. So I backtracked to the crashed car, clicked the hint button, selected the lock piece, clicked on it and it closed then clicked again and it went into my inventory, moved forward and inserted it into the door and it worked. I'm not sure but I think, after reading Cr1s's comment, that maybe I had clicked in the very middle of it just like him/her (sorry, not sure) and that was why it closed.

Be sure to actually click the lock closed if you haven't done so. Until you do that it will remain a plus item.

Yes! after tearing my hair out I clicked in the middle of the lock like other fishes suggested (thankyou) and it worked. But I think it should have closed when u add everything. Elephant should fix this because its an annoyance not needed.

Also having an issue with the lock not closing. There was another gadget in a previous Elephant game that lots of people (including myself) had problems getting to work properly; I believe they issued a fix for that game.

I'm wondering why Elephant bother with these silly gadgets that don't seem to work for some of us. The gameplay is also very jerky and slow; this seems to be an issue for me with Elephant games ever since installing Win7.

And the game wasn't all that interesting either. I'll be saving my money today.

Thank you for helping all of us out. I had even opened another profile since I thought I was stuck and restarted the game. The crazy thing is the second profile had two locks showing in inventory and that is when I decided to come to the wonderful forums to find out what was going on.
Thank you to all once again for all of your responses. Have a great day!
