When installing the Everbilt Black Heavy Duty Gate Thumb Latch, the maximum gate thickness is 3 inches.
I think so, for my situation. The "bar" that goes into the latch cradle is pretty thick (1/4 inch) and heavy. It is also capable of sliding into the post that the latch cradle is attached to. That makes it almost impossible to get through the gate if the latch "bar" slides into the hole you make for it on the fence/gate post. It would be easier to break through the wood gate. The "bar" with the thumb latch is relatively heavy. By depressing the thumb latch you can raise the "bar" latch and open the gate. Hope this makes sense.
We have not had any reports of this issue from consumers.
Yes, this gate thumb latch can be installed on a vinyl fence. The included wood screws would have to be switched to metal screws for proper installation
The hole in the thumb latch is for a pad lock. You have to slide the thumb latch bar to where that hole is on the other side of the latch plate and then put the pad lock in.
The lock is not adjustable, but in most cases swelling and contracting do not affect the performance of the thumb latch.
Seems to be a good product. Works well, looks good.
No. My gate is about 3" think and that's about as far as it will go. Email or call National hardware. https://www.natman.com/ They can advise.
Installing this thumb latch requires pilot holes for the screws of 1/8" and 3/32", and 1/2" holes for the thumb latch.
Currently we do not offer a "dummy" handle for the Thumb Latch.
