Well, I leave for vacation this Tuesday and I'd like to try and finish the hold before I have to take two weeks off.

This room is like a One Room Hold. To complete it, you need to pass through it several times.

Specifically: (SPOILERS! You don't need to read this secret stuff, I just included it to be sure we're talking about the same thing.)

Assuming this is your first pass through the room, you need to reconsider your second assumption. (This secret is your hint.)

I'm on my third pass through this room and must be missing something obvious.

Yes, you do need both decoys for the third pass, and you've put the first one in the right place. :)

It's hard to help without giving an outright spoiler, but see if this idea helps.

It seems like nobody else has had trouble with the second pass through the room, but I'm stumped. There are 2 doors between me and the stairs, and I can't get the mimic to activate either one without becoming stuck.
