This month, we were delighted to hear from customers in North Carolina – fellow golfers and butterfly conservators (they grow milkweed for the monarchs) – who appreciate high quality gate hardware. Since they have spent much time in the field, we feel honored to get such a glowing review:
“We are more than pleased. I was immediately impressed with the quality of the strap hinges and the spring action of the (Nero) Latch reminds me of the high quality Baldwin hardware I’ve installed in 25 years of as a carpenter/ home remodeler. I built this gate for our house and I’m grateful for your quality hardware to compliment it.”
Just below the latch you can see the gate stop; 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).
In this photo you can see how streamlined the gate looks with the heavy duty strap hinges and Nero…not to mention the detail where the two leaves meet.
And probably our favorite surprise in awhile is the sweet face peeking out from behind the gate! I’d say she (or he?!) approves!
