With the ability to be additionally locked and unlocked via key from either the inside only, or from both inside and outside with the Deluxe model, this automatic slam-action gate latch looks to out-do the traditional slam-latches for gates by offering a lot more sought-after features not present on most latches of this type.   

Not only do these latches offer the same default functionality of a traditional slam-latch seen on gates all over the world, but also incorporates that all-important key-locking for when you want to prevent the latch being opened without the use of a key.    This is particularly advantageous on smaller gates where it is very easy to enter through a gate using traditional style gate latches without this locking functionality.  

On the standard version, there is no option for any external interaction with the latch.  So locking and unlocking via key can only be achieved on the one side of the gate.   From the other side there would be no way to unlock the gate when locked via key, unless you could reach over with your key on smaller gates for example.  

On the Deluxe model with the key locking and unlocking available from both sides, this works by means of a push-button on the outside which incorporates a cylinder (as seen in the photos).  This button and cylinder interacts with the lock on the other side, rather than being a separate mechanism, which means there's no issue of one side being locked and the other not being locked.   When unlocked via key, simply pressing the button on the outside will lift the latching hook off the bar, allowing for entry through the gate.  The maximum thickness of gate post / frame suitable to be used with the outside access button is 150mm (6").  

It is important to remember that on both models, the locking aspect is completely optional so you can leave it in free-passage mode allowing anyone to press the button and enter, or you can lock it so that anyone trying to pass through the gate from either side would need a key.  

Suitable for gate posts as narrow as 38mm (approx. 1½"), these are a very versatile and widely suitable product for garden gates, and in addition have been designed to offer an impressive 10mm of vertical adjustment on the bar fitting, to help ensure that correct alignment can be achieved.   They have also been designed in such a way that there is no handing to consider; allowing for installation on left or right handed gate setups.  

Built from a strong and durable polymer plastic, and using marine-grade stainless steel components, these have been designed in such a way that they will not deteriorate quickly in exposed environments, which is fundamentally essential for gates, and as a nice benefit also means that routine maintenance could not be simpler.  

Installation could not be simpler, with all necessary self-tapping screws provided, and even with the Deluxe model's external lock operation, only one hole is required to be drilled through the gate, which is very impressive to say the least!   

The recommended clearance between the gate and the post is 19mm (¾") as per the manufacturer's specifications, however upon measuring independently, we can see that it would technically work with gaps from a minimum of 15mm up to a maximum of 40mm - it is worth noting however, that the larger the gap, the more stress will be put on the fixings each time the bar strikes into the latch, so bear this in mind when considering fitting these to a gate which largely exceeds the manufacturer's recommended 19mm.  

Two keys are supplied per lock.   Additional keys can be cut if selected when placing your order.
