I built this into a wooden gate that latches to a 4x4 post. I agree that visible (and accessible) nuts on the outside are less safe,..., so I did not use the 2 bolts that were included in the packaging. Instead I used 4 screws that were slightly smaller than the 4 square holes. It would be easier for someone to climb the gate or surrounding structure than it would be to unlatch the slide bolt.

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.

Solid galvanized slide bolt for common fencing applications. The finish is not great but it will not affect the strength and usefulness of this bolt. Even though the product states you can lock with a padlock it seems like it would provide minimal protection at best on a fence. This is because you can remove the nuts on the bolts from the outside since the square holes on the bracket will keep it from spinning. Of course this would take a bit of time but still possible within minutes. This product will be effective for its intended use in most applications where security is not the priority unless the backside of the bracket is inaccessible like an enclosed structure.
