The spin-1/2 Ising-Heisenberg trimerized chain in a magnetic field is revisited with the aim to explore the quantum entanglement and non-locality within the exactly solved spin system, which exhibits in a low-temperature magnetization curve two intermediate plateaux at zero and one-third of the saturation magnetization. The ground-state phase diagram involves two quantum (antiferromagnetic, ferrimagnetic I) and two classical (ferrimagnetic II, saturated paramagnetic) phases. We have rigorously calculated the concurrence and Bell function in order to quantify the quantum entanglement and non-locality at zero as well as non-zero temperatures. It is demonstrated that the entanglement can be thermally induced also above the classical ground states unlike the quantum non-locality, which means that the thermal entanglement is indispensable for a violation of the locality principle.
