Switchbox resembles a laptop or briefcase, slate grey in color, with a keyboard of sorts, a handle, and a digital display.
Switchbox enables the user to place marks corresponding to different traps on any point of the map, as well as to set them off at will. Some traps are intended to damage the opponent, others to support allies. The only two known ones are a blade that springs out of the ground when a target walks over it, and a short warp that allows an ally to teleport to another location within a certain radius. It is possible to change the effects of a trap even after a mark has been set.
It appears the marks require a surface to be placed on, thus they cannot be placed in mid-air, and, albeit invisible to the naked eye, they are visible on Radar as trion readings, potentially alerting the enemy of their presence. This drawback is somewhat mitigated by the possibility for Chameleon users to hide their trion signature among those of the marks.
Among Switchbox's downsides are the complexity of the Trigger and its high trion consumption.
|Short Warp||A trap meant to support allies. When they press the mark, they will be teleported to another one of their choosing. It has a radius of at least a few dozen meters.|
|Spring Blade||When a target steps on the mark, a blade springs up from the ground, piercing them.|

Switchbox has only three known users, and as such it is one of the most unpopular Triggers in Border. Two of them, Shinji Fuyushima and Mai Kitagawa, are A-rank agents, whereas Masakuni Hakoda's unit is currently in B-rank.
- The three users of this Trigger, Border's only known Trappers, have the same Trigger set: Switchbox, Chameleon and Shield in the main, in this order, and Bagworm Tag at the top of the sub.
- The databook lists Switchbox among the Defense Triggers, despite also calling it a "Trap Trigger".
