A Pressure Plate is an item that can be used to activate certain features when it is stepped on. It activates redstone next to itself and the block it is on. The most common use of a pressure plate is to open a door (wooden or iron). They are also used as fuel in furnaces; however, they only smelt 1.5 items per plate (as much as one of their two planks).

There are currently two types of pressure plates: wooden and stone. Wooden pressure plates are made from two wooden planks in a horizontal line, and stone pressure plates are made with Stone (not Cobblestone or Stone Brick) in the same fashion. Wooden pressure plates are different from stone pressure plates in that the former can be activated with items and arrows, but the latter cannot; they both, however, are activated by players and mobs.

Trivia

  • Pressure plates in the Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition are too over-sized to be used as tables.
  • If a TNT block is placed directly under any other block that has a pressure plate on it, the TNT will be activated when the pressure plate is stepped on, making a landmine.
  • Pressure plates are used as tables in Villages, except in the pocket edition, where carpets are used. (Carpets are now used as tables in all versions)
  • Pressure plates block water or lava from flowing.
