What does 仕組みする 「しくみする」 mean?

I stumbled upon the noun 仕組み 「しくみ」 and I totally understand it's meaning. However, Jishou and a lot of other dictionaries say that it's also a suru-verb. So, what does the verb exactly mean? I didn't find any explanation anywhere.

Thanks for helping me here, it really bothers me that there's no information about it.

Personally, I've never seen the verb 仕組みする. What I know and have seen, is the う-verb 仕組む (しくむ), that means to plan, plot, design, devise, structure, or organize.

Ok, interesting. Maybe the suru-verb technically exists but is never used in reality.

I am a native Japanese speaker, and do not think -suru form exists.

Hm, then it's weird that so many dictionaries mention it. Thank you for that info!
