How to solve Slytherin Locks in Hogwarts Legacy

Unlocking the Slytherin Locks is part of In The Shadow of the Study quest in which you help Ominis and Sebastian get inside Salazar Slytherin's Scriptorium. Part of the quest requires you to solve Slytherin Lock puzzles to gain access to another room. You will find three lock dials with symbols and a snake guarding them on top. To solve the three snake puzzles, you need to match the symbols on the gate with the snake dials.

If you look around the room, you will find three different iron gates with symbols carved at their center. Each gate has two unique symbols which you have to match with the Slytherin Locks. Use the correct symbols with the locked dials and the gates will open. Use Q, E to rotate the top dial and A, D for the bottom dial on keyboard, or the equivalent buttons on controllers. All the solutions for the three Slytherin locks are mentioned below.

Use Lumos and enter through the second gate as it will lead you to the third and final locked snake dial. The final snake lock opens the main door in the corridor. Use Confringo to light up the flambeau beside it. Now see the image above to match the symbols. The gate has a jellyfish shape on top while the bottom has a shape like a pyramid. After unlocking the third gate in this room, you can continue with the rest of the quest. You will also find Noctua Gaunt's notes which would indicate that she came down in search of the Scriptorium as well.

Remember, to get inside the Scriptorium, you need to light three braziers in the hallway. You need to do this quickly using Confringo to light them up. With this part of the quest done, the door will open up the way inside the Scriptorium. Cast Lumos and take the winding staircase that leads you to a room with a locked door. After using Revelio, you will find a broken stone wall. Use the spell Reparo to build it back up and read the message engraved. You have to ask Ominis to unlock the door with his Parseltongue. This is when you come across the Slytherin Locks in Hogwarts Legacy.
