          A:  This is much too slender for that kind of job. I would start with "deadbolt" and work up from there.

            A:  This one is made to mount left to right. You may need the cane style slide bolt. Look for cane slide bolt.

            by|Feb 17, 2020

              A:  You're probably looking for a Cane bolt similar to this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-12-in-Black-Gate-Cane-Bolt-15464/202042236 Other sizes are available.

              by|Sep 1, 2020

              A:  From what you are describing, it sounds like you are looking for a Cane Bolt.

              by|Feb 17, 2020

                A:  It sounds like what you're looking for is a "gate drop rod". If ou search for that, you should find some. I hope that helps!

                Q:can a bear break into it

                A:  A bear can break into Fort Knox if it wants to...but seriously, this is a pretty strong latch but I would bet that the wood would give before the bolt would break. We used this on a shed for riding mower so not worried about bears getting in just people. If you keep food in an outside building you may want several of these bolts on the door to give it more tensile strength.

                  A:  I purchased this to replace the one a bear had “ripped off” our shed. The latch will probably keep a bear out, the wood it is mounted to needs to be solid!

                  by|Sep 25, 2019

                    A:  We would need more information to properly answer this question.

                    by|Aug 21, 2022

                      A:  Yes. it's not that sturdy. I actually have to replace mine.

                      by|Sep 24, 2019

                        A:  My sheltie was in within 5 min, so yes, a bear could definitely break in!

                        by|Oct 2, 2019

                          A:  quite frankly it might depend on the door itself I would think, but, if the bear is determined enough I would say probably yes. but it should deter anyway if it is just curious.

                          by|Sep 24, 2019

                          A:  While I have not had to keep bears out where I live, I cannot imagine that this would keep a bear out. They are pretty crafty and when they want in, they get in. I hope this helps!

                            This galvanized slide gate latch is awesome. The kit comes with all the screws you need to attach the latch to most surfaces. The main pieces of the slide lock ( the very large piece ) has a very nice handle easy to use and it has two holes that pass through the handle in the open an closed positions that allow you to put a lock to through it to secure your property. I highly recommend this latch.

                            I recently built a small deck box to hold extra pool toys and extra outdoor things. I used this slide bolt as my locking mechanism and really have no complaints at all at this point. Installation is a breeze and the required hardware is included in the package. The hinge action is really smooth and so is the sliding action. It has held up with no issues so far.

                            The Everbilt Galvanized Slide Bolt has some great features that set it apart from other makers of slide bolts. This bolt and brace are galvanized which means that it can be used in most any environment, without rusting. Even when used on outdoor gates. Even the square shoulder bolts and screws are galvanized. The bolts that attach the brace to the solid object are square shouldered, which will prevent the bolts from twisting when attached to the brace. The bottom is that you can use a bit more torque to make sure it stays attached to whatever you need to attach it to. The design also allows you to secure it with a lock. It has plenty of room for a large lock. All-in-All, a great purchase for the money.

                            The galvanized Slide Bolt is the demanding one for my front door gate which is set inside my gate for the night time to secure my property. The set up was easy on my white vinyl outdoor. The set up was easy not with the supplied bolt. I use one of my existing screw to set up the slide bolt. And it is working fine with my existing go in hole. I recommended it on for the outside door.

                            This slide bolt is great it can be placed to be opened from the right or left. It comes in three finishes black, galvanized and zinc plated. It comes with the screws needed to install it. I will be placing this on the doggie door. The bolt is well made and sturdy, I live in Arizona so I wont have any issued with the weather damaging the bolt as it is hot most of the year.

                            This review is for the everbilt 6 inch spring loaded chain bolt and I am doing it for the home depot seeds program in exchange for my honest review. The product seems to be made of good metal the package says that it is double zinc plated which should hold up well in the elements I still feel that the spring feel kind of hard it may need to be lubricated as the rain and snow may cause it to not slide as well. The chain is a very nice long length which is good in certain cases . It comes with everything you need and the instructions are awesome and written in english and Spanish.

                            A quality product, but don't mistake this bolt for a security device. I was impressed with the high quality look and finish and the galvanized coating was the best I have seen. Most times, the galvanizing is rough and has little drips and barbs on it. These were as clean and smooth as you can imagine galvanizing to be. I would expect it to outlast most of the competitors items. However, all you have to do is remove the two screws holding the latch hoop to your door frame and the closure is bypassed. Forget the lock. Just use it to hold your door closed.

                            The Everbilt galvanized slide bolt arrived very quickly after ordering it. It was well packaged and all inclusive. I odered it because I have used Everbilt hardware in the past and still have some being used. I like the galvanized coating. The specific feature is the slide bolt, making it a very easy and secure latch. I will use it on our small garden tool's box. It will be easy to attach and use and I like it a lot.

                            The Everbilt galvanized slide bolt arrived just in time as my old gate bolt had broken and needed replacement. I have found Everbilt - that is a Home Depot brand - to be as good if not better than national brands. This bolt slides sideways and not up and down that makes it easier to maneuver. The bolt came with all the requisite hardware and looks and performs very well. The long screws to fix the bolt have flat ends at the back that makes them safe. My previous bolt had screws with sharp ends at the back that were a bodily hazard. It is billed to be rust proof as it is galvanized. Time will tell. So far so good.
