Combination Puzzle Hints

It’s become clear that some hinting is needed for my Combination Lock Puzzle! I’ve been getting some great feedback on ways to improve the types of visual puzzles I came up with, so thanks everyone for being my guinea pigs! Now on with the hints, one for each visual puzzle =) As always, highlight the text to reveal the hint.

Hint #1: Right != 12

Hint #2: The magic number may help on Left.

Hint #3: SOS

Congratulations to Jeremy for being first (and only) so far to solve the whole puzzle!  I think I’ll take four more entries for drawing prizes, so hurry up and solve if you want one! =)  Good luck!
