Customer Questions & Answers

Please let me know whether the latch can be secured with a padlock.

Asked by: JACQUELINEofALLtrades
It'd have to be a small padlock as hole diameter is small (<1/2").

what about the other side of the gate?

If this latch goes on the outside of the gate, how do you open it from the inside, to get out of your backyard? Shouldn't there be a way out as well?
Asked by: Brandy
Drill a hole and use a wire pull that is available just for this purpose.

What is the hole at the top of the latch for? Is there ornamental knobs available?

Asked by: Ronnie
Hi Ronnie. Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. The hole at the top of the latch is so that you can hook something through to open the latch easier. There are no ornamental knobs available for this latch. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made screws While installing, two screw heads broke off. Do not recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Self-Adjusting feature makes it unsecure Quality made, but the self-adjusting feature enables it to pop open with a little jiggling of the gate. My dog figured out how to open the gate in about 30 seconds. I either need to get a more secure latch or a dumber dog.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be careful with screws when installing As reported in another review the screws are weak. The screw head on one of the screws broke off when installing, after already installing two others. This required I move the latch position and buy more screws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well This stainless steel latch is the only way to go on the gulf coast where anything else would rust.. The ability for the lever to move is a lot better than the stationary ones. It is too bad it is not stocked in the stores for quick purchases. The cable that is required to open from the other side is pricey but should be included in the package with a combined lower price than separate..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gate latch This winter, the ground froze and the gate rose about 3/4". Our old gate latch had to be moved until I found this self-adjusting one. This one adjustss well, but doesn't latch if the gate is slammed(by kids). Using a thin rope for opening the pull from the inside of the gate. I am thinking it may be too heavy and the weight of the catch is not enough. Wish there was a spring to hold the latch closed. I will have to get something in place, dogs got out twice already.
