Customer Questions & Answers

"Exposed" arm length

The specs state the arm is 7.5" long, but how much is exposed outside of the bracket that supports it? I have a fairly large gap that I need the arm to stretch (3" - 4").
Asked by: white84
Only 3 inches of the arm is exposed or available to the latch.

I think a padlock could be used to lock the latch....but what's the point if a simple screwdriver can unscrew all exposed screws?
Asked by: shedguy
This latch is generally installed on the inside of the gate and can be used with a padlock.

Operating latch from inside the gate.

How would you propose operating the latch from the opposite side (inside of fence)? I'm assuming either reach over and unlatch if you're tall enough or drill a hole through jamb and attach either a chain or durable thin string/rope that is fed through the eyehole of the latch on the outside. Thoughts?
Asked by: You74
I would attach a nylon cord to the loop at the top, feed that through an eye at the top of the fence and tie a large not so it does not fall back thru the eye. Then you can reach to the top of the fence and pull the not. If you put the eye just below the top of the fence it is not obvious there is a way to open the latch.

Sturdy latch, but the L post that connects into the 'locking' mechanism has to align just perfectly. It would be 5 starts if the L post was either facing up/down or if movable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 3 months It is all steel except for one brass part. That part failed from corrosion after 3 months of very light use. Worked well until it broke.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Do not buy unless you check to make sure the latch fits. Horrible quality control. The latch didn't even fit the bar. Wasted my time.
Date published: 2016-05-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, heavy duty construction This latch was far sturdier than we had expected via our online purchase. It has a nice weight to it and latches securely. It has helped the banging from the loose gate door in the window. It was also fairly easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fence lock perfect for the gate. Keep the gate close tight. this type of latch was on the previous fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't Unlatch When Fence/Gate is Jiggled Bought a pair of these to replace two cheaper "self-adjusting" hinges I had installed that would unlatch themselves if the gate or fence was jiggled quickly. Insofar as I can tell, these are much beefier and won't unlatch no matter how vigorously I wiggle/jiggle/shake the gate/fence. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, heavy duty latch I have had a couple of these over the years and they hold up to the elements pretty well. The only problem I have had with them is the brass rivet that holds the lock mechanism together can wear out and then you have to replace the whole thing. However, this was on a gate that we use several times a week and it lasted around five years. Other than that, they are easy to install and I like that they self adjust if the gate sags at all.
