We bought this latch to replace a more expensive one that came with a gate we purchased a couple of years ago. This new latch is more substantial than the old one and if our fence post shifts it won't keep the latch from operating. Only drawback - no directions came with the latch. While it wasn't a problem for us, it could be an issue for someone else.
received quickly and the latch is beautiful. It works well and is much more substantial than the latch it replaced A very good look!
Looks great on our barn doors. Strong latch that works great. Needed a dummy matching handle, so had to buy full unit as dummy not offered. Would like to see dummy offered for future customers.
Strong, excellent quality and craftsmanship. I am extremely satisfied with the latch and the prompt delivery.
This one is my favorite. It works well if you have a large enough place to install it on the gate, although I have cut the drop bar off on occasion and repainted the raw end. The drop bar is about 10" long, but nice and heavy. The handle and keeper are nice and big. The latch has a long ramp, so it is easy to close. Most of the gate latches are cast, so one should make sure the drop bar is mounted so it ramps up the latch. If it bangs into the point of the latch the drop bar may break over time. I give it 4 stars because it is cast not steel. I think it should be at least 4.5. Arrives in a protective cardboard box. This gate latch operates good and keeps on working good.
