A steel bracing must always be kept on the underside of item SCP-XXXX’s dial. It can be retrieved and used as a sleeping aid by any site personnel with Level 2 clearance or higher, and an on-site doctor’s prescription. Item SCP-XXXX must be returned after it is used for the convenience of other personnel, singular personnel cannot keep it to themselves.

Description: Item SCP-XXXX is a small, handheld, grey, rectangular device with an antenna, dial, button, and display. The device seems to run endlessly without a known power source, as it has yet cease operation. The components of item SCP-XXXX are unknown, as all tested common and advanced means of deconstruction have failed. By moving the dial, the display changes incrementally from 1 hour to 24 hours. By aiming the antenna at a person and pressing the button the targeted person will sleep for the selected time without waking until the exact time has passed. If moderate force is applied the dial can be turned upside down, if this occurs the display will show “∞.” This appears to put the target into a never-ending sleep, as all Class D subjects with sleep induced by the infinity setting have yet to wake.

Discovery: The Foundation first learned of SCP-XXXX in 200█ when Researcher ████, working on unrelated matters, in ████, Ohio noticed a group of parents and some policemen bursting into a nearby daycare. This was then followed be screams, and “they’re all dead!” Researcher ████ escorted by two mobile task force operatives made way to the daycare. Where they witnessed the unconscious bodies of 16 toddlers, ages 1 to 3, and the childcare worker Mrs.█████ age 65 scattered around the main room. Item SCP-XXXX was also found next Joshua ████, age 3, with its dial set to infinity. Field researchers were then called in to retrieve item SCP-XXXX for further examination. The unconscious bodies were taken for testing and attempts were made to wake them. Individuals were taken in for questioning. Afterward all witnesses are given Class A amnestics. Our cover story is that all present children and Mrs.█████ were taken by a radical middle eastern terrorist group.
