We use this plugin to provide players with a simple way to lock there chests by using signs.

Remember the sign-based lock plugin Lockette that is popular for years? LockettePro is a deep remade & rewrite of the original Lockette. It has massive performance enhancement, fixed bugs and completely customizable. This is the updated version for spigot 1.14 and up of the original LockettePro.

  • Original plugin 1.8 to 1.12: Link
  • 1.13 Download: Link
  • WIKI: Link


  • No database. All information required for a lock is recorded on the sign.
  • Switch to LockettePro and switch back to Lockette worry-free anytime.
  • Absolutely better performance. Performance test comparison below.
  • Language files are editable, with UTF-8 support.
  • Able to disable “bloat” features easily with no affect to performance.
  • Customizable. For instance, you can set lockable for every single block.


  • (Recommended) ProtocolLib – Download

How to Use LockettePro?
For players, just hold a sign in your hand, then right click a chest or any lockable block. If you want to lock a door, you may put a sign on the block above or below the door too. You may also SHIFT+RIGHT CLICK the block to prevent it get automatically locked, or you can write [Private] text manually on signs as well.

Share the chest with another user:
After claiming the chest, you can add another user on the sign. First, right click the sign, then enter /lock 3 <user name>
Share the chest with everyone:
Same as above, you just use [Everyone] (with brackets) in the username.
Add another sign:
If one sign is not enough, you may hold a sign and right click on another surface. It will snap on the surface and become a [More User] sign automatically. Placing the sign while holding SHIFT will bypass the sign creation.
Timer with doors:
I have no idea why Lockette is doing this, but I am adding this feature anyways. If you add a line [timer:X] (with brackets, and X means an integer) to a door lock, the door will automatically close after X seconds.

Even more information, please see Wiki.
