Square Crank (４角クランク shikaku-kuranku ) is a key item in Resident Evil 2.
The square crank is present in three different locations depending on the character and scenario being played. For Claire B the crank can be recovered from the dog kennels in the Raccoon Police Station's basement; Leon B's game has the crank in the taxidermy room near Chief Irons' office. Both "A" games have the crank hidden on top of a shelf in the file storage room on the west wing of the building.
