    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.

    Cannot recommend this longstanding resource enough! It's a must-have on many public servers and easy to use for both owners and players. Working flawlessly on 1.14.4, too. Thanks for the great work and hope you keep it going!

    Pop is hands down the nicest developer I’ve talked to on spigot. Always so helpful and kind. I rate Pop a 10/5!
    And... the plugins nice yea.. been using LWC since forever so not much more to say about it. Functional and bug-less. (To the extent that I haven’t hit any bugs yet) 5/5 for the plugin, not as good as developer.

      Haha, yeah. Sorry if there was a lot of update spam. There were some fixes for an old version of LWC for a while now. And 2.1.3 was ready around the time that 1.14 came out (so we didn't want to release it to confuse people thinking it would work on 1.14). So everything ended up getting released at the same time. ;)

    Just amazing! Locks chests and basically any block you want with a simple /lock + punch, no signs and is customizable like allow hoppers to interact with locked chests.
