A: Mine did not come with a tube. I used a 3/4" steel pipe in cement to hold the rod in place.
A: Yes, this Cane Bolt does include the in-ground tube.
A: Yes, mine came with a tube. The inner diameter of my black-painted tube is 3/4" to accept the cane, which has an outer diameter of 5/8". The included tube is 2.5" long, so it goes 2.5" deep into the ground.
A: We use a Master brand for ours
A: Just about any padlock would work. Find the hardware area of the store and there will be a full rack of locks that will work. I like the big packs of locks all keyed alike--the same key works for all my trailer locks (tongue, side door, back door) and this cane, so when pulling the trailer through the gate (the only reason we need the wide gate) I have the key with me. My locks are Master brand.
A: You would need to find a padlock that fits a 0.85 inch diameter hole.
A: Yes, but you might need to get different screws/fasteners.
A: With the appropriate fasteners, this cane bolt can be installed on a PVC gate.
A: Yes, this works in a PVC gate as long as it has a sturdy mounting location. Is your PVC gate a white PVC sleeve over a 4x4 wooden or aluminum post? Get the appropriate screws and you're all set.
A: If it's hollow, I'd say no. If it's light aluminum, I'd say no. Best in wood
A: Yes, the only concern is corrosion between the two different metals. If your aluminum gate is painted where this mounts, then you're all set. If not, use a neoprene tape to insulate the two metals from one another, and use carbon steel screws that are coated. These are a bit over the top, and the corrosion if this is used as-is will likely take quite some time. But, if you're building it to last and last and last for your great-grandkids, check into a trailer shop and they'll get you the fasteners you'll need to join steel to aluminum. Or just paint the aluminum where you're mounting the steel plates.
