Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Diybasic Good so far
It hasonly been three weeks since I installed this latch, but it has been perfect so far. The latch feels solid and doesn't sound cheap and loose when opening or closing the gate. I installed it on the inside of my new in-swinging 6ft. wood gate. I paired it with a gate latch wire that runs through a hole so you can unlock it from the front side. The bar has a curve at the end to keep it from having too much slack to move forward and back so that's nice. Also the bar side can sort of act like a handle to place your fingers on/around when using your thumb to unlatch.

Easy to install, strong. Attractive and consistent with other gate hardware.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OldFoggy 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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner 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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ottergoose 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.

perfect for the gate. Keep the gate close tight. this type of latch was on the previous fence.
