Customer Reviews

The most excellent wood post gate latch at any price MaxLatch is a marvel of good design. It is simple to install, extremely sturdy, beautiful, functional, elegant, and quiet in operation. I've repaired a multitude of gates and gate latches in my life. On the farm, in the suburbs, and in the city. This latch beats them all hands down. Latch design is so often so poor that if the gate sags even a fraction of an inch, they stop working. This latch was designed by someone that understood both function and simplicity. I love it. 5This is a great latch for the price This is a great latch for the price. It is extremely versatile, and can be used on the left or right side of a gate.The thing I like about it is that it will lift the gate as it closes. So the gate is held up and supported helping keep it from sagging over time.I recommend this gate latch! 5Well priced solid construction! The main part I needed was the bolt but can't find without getting the whole kit. That being said locally could only find the kit for about twice the price, so to find this bargain I was very happy. Once I received was pleasantly pleased at the bolt I needed, much better made than the one Inwas replacing. This one was of solid construction not hollow like the one replacing. Expectation I'd that this once will be able to last the long haul. 5Solid latch! True, this is a really heavy duty latch, but it works well. I bent the opener-bar over just past the spring, so it didn't stick out so much from the wall. Made it really easy to open without catching clothes or anything on it. 4Was a great item, but be careful Amazon has a serious warehouse problem. We have purchases two of these in past, but since 3 August 2013 they have started shipping a different item, doesn't match the picture, a much smaller, cheaper latch. They claim they are trying to sort it out, until then, don't order unless you'll settle for a lessor latch. The one shown in the picture is a great latch, very good value, but it is not what they are currently shipping. 5Have Gate Latch Problems? Give this latch a try! This latch was easy to install using the hex head lag bolts (screws) that are provided. However, I found that it would be easy to remove the two lag bolts, that I had used on the latch bar. This situation offered almost no gate security. So, it was back to the hardware store for a couple of round headed carriage bolts (plus flat washers and nuts). I had to drill holes for the bolts but the square neck under the head of the carriage bolts fit into the holes of the latch bar and prevented the carriage bolts from turning. I now have a gate that is at least somewhat secure. 4Easy install and works like a charm. Very impressed by this gate latch. Easy to install and heavy duty with lag bolts, not screws. Took me approximately 3 minutes to install. The easiest one so far in approximately 12 gate additions/rebuilds. 5Might Not Be a Good Fit for Your Gate The latch mechanism is made of heavy metal and should be durable, although the black coating was already getting chipped during installation. We'll see how it holds up in use. The weakest link likely will be the spring, although as others have noted it should be easy to replace. The big problem is that National Hardware (Stanley Corp.) provides no installation instructions or technical drawings on Amazon or it's own website (or in the package for that matter), so you might not realize that this latch is not a good fit for your gate until it's too late.Be aware that this latch is designed for gates that have a small gap (1/2 to one inch) between the outer edge of the gate and the attachment point on the post. If your gate overlaps the post (like mine) or if you have a larger gap (e.g, between two gates that latch together), you'll need to make some adjustments or choose a different latch. Following are some installation tips based on my experience:-- If your gate overlaps the post, you will need to cut a notch in the gate to accommodate the latch mechanism (see photo).-- Depending on how your fence is constructed, you may need to add an extra block of wood to the post to get the mechanism in the right position. My fence boards are nailed to 2x4 stringers that are nailed to the post. I nailed a piece of 2x4 to the post to get the latch mechanism in line with the face of the gate (see photo).-- The latch comes with four heavy lag screws. These work fine for attaching the mechanism to the post, but they're too long and heavy for attaching the strike bar to the gate. You'll need to get two wood screws for this, or drill all the way through the gate and attach the bar with nuts and bolts. I did this for extra strength (see photo).I'm satisfied with how things turned out, but if I had had better information I probably would have chosen a different latch. 3Better than my old latch I replaced my old gate latch with this one and it's a significant improvement. The old latch was what I imagine are the most common type, the the semi-circular hook that rises up and falls down over the bar. That latch had two problems, first is you had to reach over the gate to open the latch. This is cumbersome to say the least. Second the latch failed to close reliably so it was quite common for the gate to be left unlatched. This latch solves those problems. The latch always closes and the action is very solid. You know the gate is latched. Secondly, it's easy to open from either side. My owly concern is that the latching mechanism is dependent on a spring to pull the latching mechanism upward. I imagine that the spring will be the first part to fail. Also when I mounted the bracket on the post, the latch didn't move completely freely and rubbed on the post. I put a large washer between the post and the bracket which seemed to fix the problem. 5Solid, efficient, simple, trustwothy PROS:- very easy to install- simple, uncomplicated and efficient mechanism- a lot cheaper than other latches- solid and durableCONS:- the metal parts rubbing against each other may lead to rust (doesn't bother me)- one hand operation is difficult, unless you tweak it :)Bottom line, I believe this is the best choice I could have made, especially because I wasn't looking forward to spending too much 5
