[edit] Usage

Five of the six possible orientations, levers off.
See also: Redstone circuit

A lever can be attached to the top, side, or bottom of most opaque blocks, or to the top of an upside-down slab or upside-down stairs (but not to the bottom of a right-side-up slab or stairs). When placed on the top or bottom of a block, the lever will be oriented in-line with the placing player.

When placed on the side of blocks, down is on and up is off. On the top or bottom of blocks, on is north or west, off is south or east.

To turn a lever on or off, right-click the lever. A lever can be turned on and off as fast as it can be clicked.

While off, a lever provides no redstone power. While on, a lever and its attachment block (unless attached to a slab or stairs) both power any adjacent redstone dust (including beneath the lever, or beneath or on top of the block), and any adjacent redstone comparator or redstone repeater facing away from them, to power level 15. They also activate any adjacent mechanism components (including above or below) such as pistons, redstone lamps, etc.

Mobs cannot turn a lever on or off.

If a lever's attachment block is removed, or if water flows into a lever's space, the lever will be destroyed and drop itself as an item. If lava flows into a lever's space, the lever will be destroyed without dropping itself as an item.
