|Confuse your enemies with this distracting alarm clock.|
— In-game description[src]
The Alarm Clock is a power-up that you can purchase and use 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.
It is a required power-up to complete Sly 2 as it is needed during the heist Operation: Canada Games in Menace from the North, eh! where it is used to lure the judges into a cave so the Cooper Gang can knock them out and take their places on the panel.
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 alarm clock will be thrown and will attract nearby guards so the player can either escape or eliminate them. It will self-destruct after a limited amount of time.
