Our customers continue to blow us away with their handiwork!
The September photo contest winner, randomly drawn from all submissions last month, used the dark bronze two-sided thumb latch on his custom gate.
A few more submissions with the Contemporary Ring Gate Latch showing its flexibility in the styles of gates it looks great on.
In this close-up of the cane bolt you can see that they drilled an indentation into the brick below. This gives the bolt something to engage in. Pro tip: see all dirt/mud splashed at the base of the gate and hardware? This happens so often. A quick spray with a garden hose will make everything look brand new!
Below is a driveway gate that opens out. You can see the latch on the left panel and a dummy handle on the right. Note how the strap hinges are installed. The rectangular pintle plate can’t be installed to the 2×2 piece of wood, so they cut that back and installed the plate directly to the post material behind the 2×2.
This attractive setup featuring the Alta Contemporary Lever Gate Latch could be a magazine spread!
Lastly, this project utilized select-grade Canadian Western Red Cedar for the frame, with inserts of frosted exterior-grade plexiglass. As the project location is Ontario, Canada, all materials must be able to withstand seasonal climatic conditions – we are proud to provide 360 Yardware to fill the need and finish this custom gate beautifully!
Keep those photos coming in – we love seeing them and showcasing your work!
