A Trapdoor (also known as a Hatch) is a block used as a horizontal door that fills a one block space, though the width only takes up part of the block and allows the player to walk in the unoccupied area. It was introduced in Beta 1.6. When placed outside, rainfall, water, and snowfall do not pass through it, but light can shine through.

Uses

When right-clicked, trapdoors will then open by flipping upwards, towards their hinge. Unlike doors, it does not need to be attached to a block. Wooden trapdoors can also be smelted, smelting for 1 1/2 operations.

Mechanisms

As with Doors, Trapdoors can be controlled with Redstone circuitry. Redstone in its charged state will cause the trapdoor to open. Alternatively, redstone in its uncharged state will close the trapdoor. The same can be applied to all pressure plates.

Trivia

  • Sand and Gravel, if dropped onto a Trapdoor, will break into items (similar to how sand or gravel falling on a torch or minecart track will do the same).
  • Trapdoors can be pushed by a Piston if there's another block for it to connect to or if the block it is currently connected to is pushed with it.
  • Due to the 12w40a Snapshot, trapdoors can no longer be activated by left clicking. Only right clicking opens/closes trapdoors.
  • In 1.8, they added Iron Trapdoors to the game, which can be activated only with a redstone pulse, like Iron Doors.
  • Trapdoors can create air sockets/stop water when placed in any body of water.
  • Trapdoors can be used to seal off underground player-made structures from the outside world, allowing the player to seal out damaging mobs such as Creepers.

Bugs

  • In Minecraft Pocket Edition, when a Block is placed down next to the trapdoor, it will activate the trapdoor, just like with Doors. (Fixed)
