Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner Nice looking handle.
I have used these gate pulls a couple of times in the past while doing fence/gate projects with neighbors and friends. They seem to hold up to the weather well if the paint finish is intact. If there are any scratches in the paint then there is a potential for rust to form. The paint finish seems relatively light and easy to scratch so be careful. As a Home Depot Seeds member, I received this gate pull as a promotion and could tell that this one had been opened and resealed previous to me receiving it. After opening it up, I noticed that there was a scratch in the paint finish towards the bottom of the handle. Only time will how long it will hold up to the Oregon rain. If it does not, they’re pretty inexpensive and I could just get a new one at the store or pull it off and paint it myself.
These handles are made from fairly lightweight steel but are heavy enough to make opening and closing a heavy door or gate easy. One thing that is somewhat of a drawback is that the mounting hardware consists of one lag screw and one thru bolt with a washer and a nut. The lag screw is designed to go into something solid such as a 2X4 and the thru bolt is for something relatively thin such as a fence picket. This limits the location that one can install the pull without having to pick up another screw. My gate is put together with a gate kit which means the pull pretty much has to be at the top of a 6’ tall gate. The installation took less than 10 minutes.

Was easy to install I only needed a drill and wrench. Adds a little flair to my gate and is an easy to install item. Has a bolt and a screw included so that you can screw into strong support beam for a firm tight hold. Took less than five minutes and at a great price is a nice addition to my fence.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIY03038 Rugged formed steel handle
Rugged formed steel handle with a black painted surface that is free of burrs and sharp edges. This handle has a large pull area that provides enough space to easily grip the handle with or without wearing gloves.
This handle is supplied with painted black steel hardware which includes one 1/4" x 1-1/2" [38mm] long lag bolt for the top mounting hole and one 1/4" x 1-3/16" [30mm] long machine bolt with one flat washer and one hex nut for the bottom mounting hole.
I installed this handle on a shed door using 1/4" x 2" long hex machine bolts with washers and nuts because part of the door is hollow and the hardware supplied with the handle is too short to use with a door.
Didn't give this handle 5 stars because not sure how long the thin coating of black paint will last with being exposed to the elements outdoors over time.

THIS GATE PULL WAS A PERFECT FIT FOR THE NEW GATE I BUILT. THE BLACK FINISH WAS A PERFECT MATCH FOR THE HINGES I GOT AT HOME DEPOT ALSO. THE BLACK FINISH LOOKS GREAT AND SHOULD BE RUT FREE FOR A VERY LONG TIME.THE HEAVY DUTY 11 INCHE SIZE IS GREAT TO OPEN & SHUTE WITH GLOVES ON. HAS A GREAT LOOK & DESIGN TO GO WITH ALMOST ANY STYLE OF GATE YOU BUILD.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gcmsguru Decent quality but thin paint finish
Decent sheet metal handle but the paint finish seems a bit thin and thus prone to rust.
