Step 1: Step 1

So to make this you'll need:

  • 4 fence gates
  • 14 wood planks
  • 4 wooden pressure plates
  • 1 torch

Start by placing down the fence-gates in a square with a one block gap in the middle, and a pressure plate in front of each gate.

Step 2: Step 2

Now build 4 pillars in the corners and a block over each fence-gate as shown.

You can add a torch for decoration although this will decrease the number of mobs that spawn nearby.

Step 3: How It Works

Now when a mob walks through it will get stuck between the gates.

I hope you liked this quick tutorial, if you did, feel free to comment, follow and vote for me in the Minecraft Challenge :-)

    Good point -.I'm not sure what you could do about that since I always play in vanilla; however if you come up with a solution, please send a picture and I could add it to the tutorial if you liked.
