|First Appearance||Beta 1.7|
|Type of Block||Solid Block|
|Data Values||Hex: 1D|
When extending, sticky pistons act exactly as regular pistons, pushing up to 12 blocks. When retracting, sticky pistons will pull along the block immediately in front of them. obsidian, bedrock, note blocks, tile entities, furnaces and extended pistons cannot be pulled, just as they cannot be pushed. It is possible for the block stuck to a sticky piston to be pushed aside by another piston, and sticky pistons do not protect sand and gravel against gravity. Stickiness only affects the retraction of the piston. As of 1.5, the piston's retraction is more stable than previous updates.
- As of the 1.7.3 Beta update, it is impossible to place a jack-o-lantern onto a sticky piston.
- Sticky piston transparency for redstone wire is affected by the extension of the pusher.
- If a sticky piston is retracted with an extended piston above it, the activated sticky piston above will not go down with the sticky piston below.
- Sticky pistons can push and pull rails.
