Confuse your enemies with this distracting alarm clock.
― In-game description[src]
The Alarm Clock is a power-up that can be purchased and used to make a lot of noise that will distract all enemies in range, enabling the player to slip past them. In Sly 2: Band of Thieves, only Sly Cooper can use it, while in Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, only Bentley can.
Description[edit | edit source]
To use it, the player must press the assigned button (, or ) and aim where they want Sly or Bentley to throw it, using the arrow that appears. When the button is released, the clock will be thrown and will begin ringing upon landing, attracting nearby guards and allowing the player to either escape or eliminate them. It will self-destruct after a limited amount of time.
The TOM gadget serves exactly the same purpose as the Alarm Clock. They are both used to simply distract enemies.
