Grates function the same as a vanilla trapdoor, they can be right-click placed at the top or bottom of a block space, opened or closed and waterlogged. Grates can be used for many stable decoration and RRP purposes, we suggest:

  • Drains in wash stalls and stalls
  • Concealed access to hidden water sources
