Does Solidworks offers gears as a toolbox?

We have this unit we are designing and it needs a little door on the front panel. How do we make the door open and close using mechanism such as gears?

Gears are not the only option. If you guys know of any other way to do this please let me know. The "door" doesn't have need a button to open and close. Just needs a finger to do that.

I have looked at the opening "doors" of tape decks and boom boxes but don't know how it works without dismantling the whole unit.
