Step 5 – Place the bottom

Join the lock (18) to the bottom (03) as shown below.

Fix them with the large fastener (15).

Turn the knob on the clock (front) to set “XII”, then turn the knob on Santa’s calendar (back) to set “31” – this is how the box unlocks.

Look inside the hut. If everything has been done correctly, you will see that the hollows on the wheels point to the hollows in the front and in the back. See the photo below (upside-down view).

  • If it is all right, go on to the next step.
  • If the hollows don’t match, most probably you’ve failed to follow important notes during step 2 or 3 and now you should disassemble the hut carefully and rebuild it.

Place the bottom and push it to close.

Lock the bottom by setting random values on the clock and on the calendar.
