We prove the existence of multiple periodic solutions for scalar-valued state-dependent delay equations of the form $x'(t) = f(x(t - d(x_t)))$, where $d(x_t)$ is given by a threshold condition and $f$ is close, in a suitable sense, to the step function $h(x) = -\mbox{sign}(x)$. We construct maps whose fixed points correspond to periodic solutions and show that these maps have nontrivial fixed points via homotopy to constant maps.
    We also describe part of the global dynamics of the model equation $x'(t) = h(x(t - d(x_t)))$.
