A
dropper
is a block that can exist used to eject items or to push button items into another container.

Redstone Dust

Usage

[
]

A dropper can be used as a container or equally a redstone component to move objects.

A dropper tin exist placed so that its output faces in any direction, including up or down. When placed, the dropper’south output faces toward the actor. With default textures, the droppers output side looks like a face when positioned for horizontal output. Otherwise, the output side has a square hole.

A dropper cannot exist moved by pistons in
Coffee Edition.

Container

GUI of the dropper.

A dropper has 9 slots of inventory infinite.

To open the dropper GUI, utilise the
Utilize Item
control. To move items between the dropper inventory and the role player inventory or hotbar while the dropper GUI is open up, drag or shift-click the items. To go out the dropper GUI, use the
Esc
control.

By default, the GUI of a dropper is labeled “Dropper”. A dropper’southward GUI label can exist changed by naming the dropper in an anvil before placing it, or by using the
/data
command‌[
Java Edition just
]

(for example, to label a dropper at (0,64,0) “Alice’s Dropper”, use
/data merge block 0 64 0 {CustomName:'"Alice's Dropper"'}).

A dropper can be “locked” (or subsequently unlocked) past setting the dropper’s
Lock
tag with the
/data
control. If a dropper’due south
Lock
tag is not blank, the dropper cannot be accessed except by players belongings an item with the same name as the
Lock
tag’southward text. For instance, to lock a dropper at (0,64,0) so that just players holding an detail named “Alice’s Cardinal” tin access the dropper, utilize
/data merge block 0 64 0 {Lock:"Alice's Cardinal"}.‌[

Redstone component

[
]

A dropper can be used to eject items, or push items into another container.

Activation
A dropper can be activated past:

  • an side by side active
    power component
    (Exceptions:
    a redstone torch does non plough ON a dropper it is attached to)
  • an adjacent powered opaque
    block
    (strongly-powered or weakly-powered)
  • a powered
    redstone repeater
    or
    redstone comparator
    facing the dropper
  • powered
    redstone grit
    configured to betoken at the dropper, or on peak of it, or a directionless “dot” next to information technology; a dropper is
    not
    activated by side by side powered redstone grit that is configured to point in another direction.
In improver to the methods above, droppers tin too be activated by quasi-connectivity.‌[
Java Edition only
]

A dropper activates if i of the methods to a higher place
would
activate a machinery component in the block to a higher place the dropper, even if there is no mechanism component there (even if the cake above the dropper is air or a transparent cake), but only when the dropper receives a cake update (including a redstone update inside ii blocks of the dropper).
A dropper has a 2 redstone tick (4 game ticks, or 0.2 seconds barring lag) delay betwixt activation and a response. During this time, additional inputs are ignored.
Beliefs
When activated, a dropper waits 2 redstone ticks (four game ticks, or 0.2 seconds disallowment lag) and so ejects one item from its inventory. The dropper does not keep to eject items while activated — ejection occurs only on the initial activation (the rising edge of an input signal). To eject multiple items, repeatedly activate the dropper with a clock circuit.
If multiple slots are occupied by items, a random occupied slot is chosen for ejection. The slot is chosen when an detail is ejected, not when the dropper is initially activated, thus it is possible to movement items into or out of a dropper between its activation and item dispensing.
If the dropper is facing a container, the ejected item is transferred into the container. If the container information technology is facing is full, the dropper does not activate. Otherwise, the item is ejected in the direction the dropper is facing, every bit if a player had used the
Drop
command. Even items that would exist treated differently past a dispenser (such every bit arrows) are simply ejected by a dropper.
A dropper makes a clicking noise (the
random.click
sound consequence) when activated empty, when ejecting items into air, or when ejecting items into whatever cake other than a chest blazon container or barrel or another dropper. It is silent when it successfully transfers an item into whatsoever kind of chest or barrel, or another dropper.

A dropper is an opaque cake, so powering it direct can cause side by side mechanism components (including other droppers) to activate too.

A line of droppers, each pushing items into the next dropper, is known as a
dropper pipe. A dropper pipe must be clocked to motion items, but can exist clocked to move items faster than a hopper pipe’s transfer charge per unit. When a dropper piping pushes items upwardly, it is known as a
droppervator
(short for “dropper elevator”).

Droppers can be placed under notation blocks to produce “bass drum” sounds.
