Congratulations to the winner of our monthly photo drawing! This is a deadbolt used on a thick wood gate. The frame was 2×4 construction with horizontal Fiberon composite decking applied to one side. On the interior side of the gate, the Jim used pieces of wood to ‘block up’ and create a flat area for the deadbolt to be installed.
Other Project Photo Submissions
Thanks for all of your photo submissions! We look forward to seeing more of your project photos.
One last, though no-less important note! You can see a gate stop in the last couple of photos. Gate stops are included in all of our packages – and for good reason! You can read more about them in this blog post (and parts 2 and 3), but in short, your latch-arm and catch are meant to latch the gate, not stop it; a gate stop will – and will protect your hardware from damage caused by a gate slamming shut (not to mention, keep your warranty valid).
