# Detectiongate setup
You can use detectiongates to see if someone is carrying illegal items, such as weapons. You could use detectiongates near a police station, army base or a prison.
# How do you create a detectiongate?
Place an iron block on the floor and put a golden pressure plate on top of it. Add one or more black wool blocks above or next to the iron block.
