The Clockwork is an obstacle, firstly introduced as the third obstacle during the first episode of the semifinals on American Ninja Warrior 12.
Competitors must swing on three bars, each was attached to a sprocket placed around 6-7 feet apart. However, the bars were connected together, meaning swinging one sprocket moved them all simultaneously, making each transition difficult and requiring the competitors to time their release from the previous bar to the next bar.
The obstacle took out only two competitors in the first semifinal episode, both were notable competitors: Allyssa Beird and Jonathan Horton. In the second semifinal episode, the obstacle took out four competitors: Tiana Webberley, Ben Melick, Taylor Johnson, and Jessica Helmer.
