Good product and looks sharp
Its a thumb latch. It looks pretty slick. No, it is not going to hold up like stainless steel, I wish they made a stainless steel version but for now it seems this is the only option from Home Depot. Its very straightforward to install. Read the directions. Reading some reviews on here and it is clear a lot of these one star reviews are from homeowners who either are not reading the directions or are just incompetent. For example, one review states the thumb latch is not long enough to through a 4x4 post "One star review for that!" The thumb latch is not supposed to go through a 4x4 post, the directions clearly state this and an illustration is provided as well. For $25 I would say this is a good product. Wish it came in other options besides black though.

    Not heavy duty. Lock arm bends easily
    I bought this gate latch because it is supposedly heavy duty. It is not! I installed it on a gate that is hardly used (maybe once a week) in June 2020. When I went through the gate today, August 31,2020, noticed that the lock bar was severely bent. In Hawaii, we gave slight tropical breezes frequently, but did not think the breeze would bend this “heavy duty “ lock arm like shown in the picture attached. Very disappointed. Will need to find a better gate latch. I would not buy again.

      Its a solid piece and it looks great on my gate. Operates as promised. You will likely need a hacksaw or an angle grinder to adjust the length of the bar.

      Nice simple , solid appearance and locking capability. Straightforward installation. However very limited adjustments and rusts very easily and immediately, with the slightest scratch. Unfortunately not recommended.

      It's a pretty nice gate latch. The thumb button is held in place permanently so you don't have to worry about it falling out. I'm very confused by everyone who thinks this gate latch does not lock w/ a padlock. It's pretty simple. The latch shifts left and right to allow it to slide into a "stop" on the far right. When you add a padlock through the pre-drilled hole and have the latch slid over to the right, you will not be able to open the gate.

        Good latch, easy install.
        My fence is a out swing, part of the pool code here in California. For many years I used the standard silver latch, connected to a string that fed out to the front of the fence. I selected this latch because it had a thumb lever and handle that I could access from the front of the fence. The door pull and thumb lever look nice from the front side. On the back side, the lever and door strike look (located on the post) all look of good quality. Here's the simple Instructions: 1. Take door latch and sharpie and mark a template of the 4 mounting screws, as well as the opening in the middle for the latch. Drill 4 pilots, and use 1/2" to drill 2 holes for access of thumb lift bar. Chisel out the 2 1/2" inch holes so that thumb lift bar can fit through it. Mount hardware on the inside of fence. A total of 4 screws. 2. Mount thumb latch and door pull on front side of fence. Make sure thumb pull bar is inside the chiseled hole, and has THE LATCH BAR resting on top of thumb pull bar on the inside of fence. Mount door pull. By the time all hardware on door she be installed. 3. Finally, install the strike/catch on the post. Make sure that you left enough room from the inside latch mount to catch the strike bar. Too close, and it will hit the post. To far, and it will miss the strike. Once you align your strike with the latch bar in the resting position, use your sharpie to make a template of mounting screws, pre drill some pilot holes, and then mount. All done! To the comment about the padlock not fitting, I had the same problem. I believe we installed the door latch backwards or upside down, since or doors swing outward. Had it been right side up position, the padlock would have keep the latch from rising and lifting the latch over the strike plate. My solution, just get a slightly longer padlock handle, and it can reach through the latch and all the way through the door strike, and connect them both. Good luck for every one that buys. I will be installing on opposite side of house. About 40 minutes to install.

          Totally misleading
          I purchased this for a fence gate solely because it states "features a padlock hole for added security". While it's true there is a hole in the moving part, there is not a corresponding hole on any non-moveable part to anchor the lock to. Even the picture given in the "instructions" shows a padlock latched through the moveable piece and not anchored to anything. When the thumb latch is depressed it simply raises the latch with the padlock hooked onto it. WTH?

          Great latch, bad screws.
          Latch is excellent. The screws that come with it are awful. Be sure to drill and go slow or you'll strip the heads.
