Lockable Chests Addon

A Lockable Chest is basically a block entity which works similar to normal chests except that you can lock them. It’s really useful in case you don’t want griefers stealing your hard earned diamonds or any other items or blocks that you want protected from other players. As many other add-ons, it replaces a mob in-game, so it’s not actually a real chest block.

How does it work?

Lockable Chests replace Iron Golems. This means that you can either find them appearing naturally in villages with at least 10 villagers or 21 houses. You can also use an Iron Golem spawn egg to spawn a Lockable Chest.

To lock a chest you will need a Key (Carrot on a Stick). You can only access the storage slots if it’s unlocked.

  • iOS / Android: Long press on the Lockable Chest and tap on the interact button to lock/unlock it.
  • Windows 10: Right-click on the Lockable Chest to lock/unlock it.

A locked chest can’t be opened or pushed around. It will always remain in one place.

If you leave it unlocked then other players (such as griefers) will be able to take the items from the chest or even destroy it.

You can only destroy a Lockable Chest by hitting it with a stick. The contents of the chest will automatically drop on the ground.

General Lockable Chest Features

  • Replaces Iron Golem.
  • Lockable with a Key (Carrot on a Stick).
  • Remove chest? Retrieve chest by tapping on the Lockable Chest with a Stick. You will get the content of the chest back.

    Nice, but there is one moment that i didn’t understood. If i lock a chest, and then someone will come with key (not mine key) , can he/she open chest?

  3. Nether Playz MC says:

  4. Marcussands says:

    Good can I review this

  5. Luv4eryone says:

    But wait… can’t the greifer just use a stick on the chest to unlock it? And aren’t enderchests a better way of keeping your valuables safe??? They can’t be unlocked with a stick… also I’m pretty sure you can make normal chests lockable with commandblocks too… so sorry if this comes across as harsh but, what can you do with this addon that there is not a better alternative for? It’s a cool idea, and I could see it being used for adventure maps but I dont think it would be quite ideal for a survival world…

    • Jannik_DE says:

      This Addon is for Multiplayer Worlds and Realms.
      Only the Owner of the chest, or a player in creative mode, can remove the chest with a stick.

    Can everyone unlock my chest with a key?

  7. Yioker1 says:

    Can you kill a locked chest (that isn’t yours) with a stick? It seems as though the answer is no, though I’m not sure.

  8. uhhhhidunnomaname says:

    There is no iron golem spawn egg. You have to use iron blocks and a pumpkin.

  10. EstesFromML says:



    So, there is no way to unlock the chest again? That’s kinda trash. I don’t want to be rude, I’m just pointing out the facts.
