We have a lot and do Not want people driving down the driveway unless we are there working. This was the perfect solution! It is sturdy, attractive and easy to install on either metal or wooden posts and works with cable, chain or rope to secure your property. Un-locks with a push of a button never leaving your car. Just push the button on the remote and the arm falls open dropping the cable allowing you to drive in. It can also be unlocked with the enclosed keys and there is an option of buying a keypad. The unit comes with two transmitters and a set of keys. This is definitely one of my favorite things.

The Mighty Mule Gate Lock is just what I needed for my Northern Michigan property. It is very well constructed. I was pleased it came with 2 remotes and 2 keys. I put in battery's and everything works perfectly. I will update review after installation.

This device allows you to remote unlock a chain or cable lock. I first looked at the security of the device. It only has one screw to remove the cover. However, the case cannot be removed while the latch is fastened. Overall, I didn't see anything security wise that would make tampering with the box worth the trouble. People would be more likely to just cut the cable or chain at that point.
This system has some add-ons around it. A solar cell to keep the cells topped and a digital key pad for entry without remote. All in all, this is a pretty useful device. If you are not locking the chain again, you only need to get out of your vehicle when leaving to lock up.
See some details on the images posted. The latch is robust and it closes without any other action. Just push up in place. The remote includes a handy little LED light.
This is very useful for those places where chain security is needed.

Well I finally got around to installing my Mighty Mule Automatic Cable-Gate Lock at my summer lake home. The best feature I like is that I can drop the chain from the remote without getting out of the truck. This is a nice feature to use when it dark or raining out. I concreted at 6x6 in the ground and mounted it to that. The installation was very easy and only took about a half hour. Keys are also supplied incase the batteries in the remote go dead. I used 10' of #30 3/8 chain just for security and that it is heavy so when I hit the button to unlock the chain falls to the ground. Great product and it has really came in handy.

This gate lock is the perfect solution for being able to pull a long vehicle into a chained driveway without stopping to block traffic - or having the gate opened for an extended period where livestock might be able to wander out.
The remote operation allows you to unlock the gate or drop the chain from the vehicle, drive in, all without having to block the road or get out of the vehicle.
Installation is very straightforward and the operation is seamless. I haven't tested the limits of the remote, but it clearly operates from a significant distance.

If you have property you need to keep secure, but also want easy access this is the product for you.
It is best suited for securing driveway access using a cable or chain, but can also be used to secure other things stored outside - jet skis, trailers, patio furniture, etc. Just run a cable or chain through the items secured at one end and using the Might Mule Cable Gate Lock at the other.
I installed this at my lake trailer across the driveway, but also ran the cable through a motor cycle frame and outdoor patio furniture so everything is kept secure. Now when I pull up, I just press the remote to unlock and drop the cable and pull into the driveway and everything is unlocked and I'm ready to enjoy my weekend.
It is very convenient to use and provides good security as well.

We used this to secure the access to our land. It is really nice to be able to drop the chain gate with the remote, and you can leave a remote with a friend or relative. We get some serious rain down here and it was always a pain to get out and do the chain lock, not anymore!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cloe Looks tough
Looks to be well built but only time will tell, after being exposed to the elements in the mountains. But it did not come with the 8 batteries and 2 carriage bolts/nuts needed for installation, which would have made it ready for installation. For the price paid, these should have been included. There was only 1 remote, when most openers come with 2.
