Customer Comments: The "Trouble Clef" Puzzle
From: J.K., Quincy, CA
It has been at least 6 months since I began trying to solve this puzzle. I have tried to "look for a another way"(several dozen other ways), to "see the big picture"(big picture was no clearer than small picture), to "assume nothing is what it appears to be"(this one's a bit disconcerting) , to "look for uncommon or unusual ways..."(definitely went this route), and "taking a break"(nothing was clearer after a good night's sleep). I acknowledge that "failure is guaranteed only if one quits"(I quit). You win. Please provide the solution. Thank you.

Hello, I have been up all night last night (seriously) my mind is boggled with three of your puzzles. Could you give me some sort of hint, a clue, a solution manual anything! Just put me out of my misery. After tying the Trouble Clef in 50 knots (how the heck did I do that?) I think that one is hopeless, the other two are that pesky Pentangle, and the annoying Arrow one (get the giant copper arrow off the three things, I dunno) Please help somewhat..

Hi, I don't know if it's been six months yet (pretty darn close) but could you please send me the solution to the Trouble Clef. It's the only one of the complete set I haven't figured out yet. Every time I make a serious attempt it gets so messed up that I had to bend the ring to get it off, then untangle it. This one is by far the most difficult simply because anything you do tangles it up.
