    LWC is the longest-lived single block protection plugin, that protects both the blocks themselves and their contents. Originally designed in 2010 for locking chests (hence the name "Lightweight Chests"), it can be configured to lock any block.

    LWC supports CraftBukkit, Spigot, and Paper servers. Links to stable releases for specific versions of MineCraft can be found in the Version History tab. Recommended versions are as follows:

    LWC 1.9.6 for MC 1.8.8-1.12.2
    LWC 2.1.5 for MC 1.13.0-1.14.3

    Development builds of the plugin may also be found on the build server and various mirrors. Keep in mind that these may contain bugs.

    Help & Support

    First time using LWC? Fortunately, the plugin is easy to use. Simply download, drop it into your plugins folder, and restart your server -- blocks such as chests should now lock automatically when placed!

    Information on how to use and configure LWC is available on our wiki.

    For additional support, either directly post in the discussion section here on Spigot, or join us on Discord! Generally questions asked on Discord will be answered much more quickly than on Spigot. DO NOT use the review section to ask for help. If you do so, you will most likely be ignored. Thank you.

    A must have plugin in your server, but it could be nice to have something else that a message in the chat to see privates containers, for instance "private chest" on the inventory of the chest or in the top of the toolbar

    Very bad plugin, if you wanna crash your serv and lose data, use it. Lots of compatibility issues and error logs. I tried this plugin several times over several years without any changes.

    This plugin has supported me in MC as a player and server owner for many years. For some time it was even acting as a useful slimefun block protector on one server. I also rebuilt this plugin (Built tools with a depreciated mappings list) back in 1.10 and posted the link to jar on bukkit. (, "I will never give up on LWC") It worked awesome up to 1.12 but was still Hidendra's plugin. Best ever protection outside claims etc. Magnet chest is very handy too. Once you go LWC you will never accept anything less, there is nothing better. Apparently there is a PlaceholderAPI %lwc_locks% thingy that shows the viewer's locks amounts but I cannot get it to display in holograms etc. This plugin is very mature and managed by apparent dedicated team. You can trust in LWC.

    Great plugin, but where are the language files? the folder is empty! I have been using this plugin for years. It seems like the languages are hard coded. Change that! It seems like you just wanted to recode it cheaply!
