Hey guys, my name is Darrel, and I'm the head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk, one of the premier suppliers of security-related products here in the UK. So thanks for tuning and coming over and having a look at our site.
Today we're talking about products and we're talking about the Asec. It's the heavy duty Suffolk gate latch. Now there's loads of gate latches around. This is probably one of the most popular type of gate latch that's available in the UK.
The principle is on the outside you would have this little pole handle with a little lever handle like that, and that would then engage on that there like that and lift the latch up et cetera like that. There's nothing really fantastic about its operation. It's not unique, it's not original by no means, It just means that we have another manufacturer of this particular product here, and it's called Asec.
Now, what Asec says is that this is designed for external use, and I've gone through a lot of Suffolk latches over the years, and this one is feeling a little bit heavier than the norm, I have to say, I mean there are quite lightweight ones out there, so I think Asec are trying to say "Listen guys, this is a little bit more robust, it's a little bit more heavy duty", and you definitely feel it in the weight there a little bit more.
It's obviously a malleable standard steel finish, and it's been powder coated in black and there's not really much more that I can actually say about it. It comes with its fixings etc., and of course then it comes with its latch and everything else that you would need to go on the inside.
Now fixing one of these is quite simple. You'd effectively drill a hole, through the door like a vertical slot to allow this move up and down like that and then you would physically screw those to the outside and then that would then sit on the inside like that, and as you pop that up and down, this would move the latch up and down like that. And consequently that would then move it out of its keep that would sit there on the frame like that, okay? And then you would be able to open the door and close the door behind you.
So, like you say, there's not much more. It's only to give you an opportunity of using the video so you can actually see the product in a little bit more detail from that of a photo. So, you know, that's basically the product, it's the Suffolk gate latch. It's available. It's manufactured by Asec, and of course it's available here on LocksOnline.co.uk.
But listen, if you need a bit more information, either on this product or any other product, by all means, give us a shout, use the live chat on our website, or by all means, pop us over an email, or just pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you, and more importantly, we'd love to see you as a customer.
So from me, Darrel, and all of us here at LocksOnline, thanks for tuning in and we'll catch up with you real soon. Bye-bye now.
