Questions & Answers


I don't understand how to install.

Asked by fred February 21, 2021

Installation instructions are included with the Fenix Two-way Fence Gate Latch.

Is there a left-hand and right-hand version, or is this one reversible?

Asked by GreatDaneDad February 7, 2021

It is reversible, but the images are not very clear to install and how to change from side to side.

Can it be LOCKED and UNLOCKED from both INSIDE **and**outside (We normally keep the gate locked -...

Asked by Wally July 18, 2020

It can be locked only from the inside, with a padlock.

How much clearance should be left between the gate and the post for this latch to work properly?

Installing the gate latch

Asked by Debra August 19, 2018

If it's on all wood fencing will work. Latch seems stiff however.

Can this be instaled on a double gate?

Asked by Wifey April 11, 2018

Yes but the side with the single plate needs to be secured to the ground.

I need better instructions on how to install this latch. Video would be nice.

Asked by Jason August 20, 2017

Go to the Fenix website and there is an instructional video.

We have installed two of these to our gates and the mechanisms appear to be sticking ... they wil...

Asked by Dee August 2, 2017

If the gates are perfectly straight it won't drag; mine wasn't so I had to notch out a portion of the fence under the single plate side to give clearance,. Used a multi-too Dremel.

How do I install this Felix two way gate latch

Asked by David July 29, 2017

There is a very sketchy set of four steps on the paper inside the clam shell. I found them difficult to understand. They appear to have left out some steps, so I went to http://fenixmfg.com/. Guess what? The website has no clue that Fenix is in the gate latch business (at least at the time of this writing,14 August, 2017). Good luck!

My gate will be framed with rough cedar 2x6's, so it will be about 5 3/4" thick where the latch i...

Awesome latch
I was hesitant to buy this after reading all the negative reviews but I am glad I went ahead and bought it anyway. I dont understand all the trouble others had with it. This thing was easy to install and works perfect. I haven’t had any trouble with it and I didn’t have to modify anything. I get a lot of compliments on how cool it is and how easy it is to use. I would definetely buy it again

Nothing is perfect but works great
I read other reviews, but went ahead and tried it out. Yes I had to put a handle on the pull side when pulling the door/gate closed because the pin would stay raised...so what. Mime went in a custom spot, so trimming the stop strip for the door wasnt an issue. It works fine for us, wish I coild of came up with the design. I could see a more-perfect one coming out, but being a lot more money. I might be buying another for a different spot

The latch was available and reasonably priced at my home town Home Depot. Installation was easy, instruction were reasonable to follow. We have used it now for just over a week. My wife and I like the concept and the look and the function of the latch. So far we are pleased with the latch.
Easy to install looks great.

hard to install, easy to use
It was a real pain to install. But the 3rd time was a charm. The idea is a solid one. They could greatly improve their instructions. I have a non standard fence with a gate that opens inward, this handle works great. Push from the outside, pull from the inside. As you can see it required some enginuity. I wish i could post more pictures, I’d show how i mounted the other portion

I made the mistake not to reward the reviews. I loved the design and concept and installed two on my brand new fencing. Spent a lot on new fencing to now have two doors/access points that don’t work or close because of these latches. HD stop selling this product. I can maybe return these latches but I can’t fix my brand new fence posts after installing them. REALLY UPSET at HD for having ignored past reviews and continued to sell. My new fence posts and new doors are ruined $$$.

Worst Instructions I have ever seen
Instructions claim to be "Simple". Too simple and no help on manufacturer website. Great idea, but NOT worth the frustration of trying to decipher incoherent instructions :(

I like the way it works; would be better if the latch portion, that is flat had a curved front that would attach to the second gate allowing alignment of the latch before attaching the flat piece to the fence. Too much trial and error to install but it works great once installed.

This latch is easy to install and clicks solidly closed when the gate swings shut. It was a definite upgrade from the old latch. I recommend a spring closer in combination with this latch.
