Cog Switch
Obstacle Type Trigger

The Cog Switch is a trigger in Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation. Since it operates like a winch it is used in combination with Timed Doors.


With each turn of the cog the door is pulled up a bit more. As soon as Lara releases the controls the door will start closing again.

Generally you have to turn it at least three times.


This trigger appears several times throughout the game and was also used in several Custom Levels.

  • Angkor Wat

  • Guardian of Semerkhet
The Cog Switch returns in the level Guardian of Semerkhet
  • Chambers of Tulun
