For our customers, October was all about the contemporary ring gate latch!!
Curious about how the Ring Latch works? Check out a brief reel we made to document the ease of this very popular latch (you *might* end up with a certain song stuck in your head, and for that we apologize in advance!).
The photo below shows several comment-worthy things. This gate is hung between brick walls. They installed a wood jamb to the brick so that there’s a smooth, even place for hardware to install. They chose a latch with a narrow strike plate to fit on the narrow jamb.
Have a look at these completely unique projects – a sunburst gate, also with a ring latch and cane bolt, and simple garden gate for which a dark bronze slide bolt and strap hinge hardware was the perfect fit.
This month’s photo drawing winner put a bird on it – the gate with ring latch and heavy duty band hinges – that is…can’t say we blame the bird for finding the perfect spot to perch!!
One gate element that can be hard to see in these photos are gate stops. 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).
