One of the many puzzles you’ll need to solve during The Journey to Mêlée Island Tall Tale is recovering Citizen of Mêlée’s missing cargo. If you are looking for the tool to complete this puzzle, you’ve likely already used the Crate Winch at the docks to pull the Cargo Crate out of the water.
However, the Crate of Important Goods you need to return to Citizen is trapped inside the Cargo Crate. To open it, you’ll need to use a tool!
Where is the tool required to open the Cargo Crate?
From speaking to the pirates around Mêlée island, mainly the Men of Low More Fiber, you’ll learn that there are tools at the Jail. The Jail is on High Street just before the Governor’s Mansion.
From the docks, walk past the Scumm Bar to Low Street, where Citizen is. Then walk under the Clock Tower to High Street. Keep walking past the General Store and Church until you reach the Jail.
Head inside the Jail, and you’ll find a Claw Hammer sitting on the table near the prisoner Otis. Interact with the Claw Hammer to pick it up and return it to the Cargo Crate. Interacting with the Cargo Crate using the Claw Hammer will open up the crate.
You’ll find the Crate of Important Goods that you can return to Citizen.
