"Universal Gate Latch"
Universal ? A few galaxies maybe - some minor star systems = sure. It's OK. Does what ya want it to do. Caveat: Nothing is foolproof against a sufficiently motivated fool, with power tools. Our horses have all day to figure things out. The "Universal Latch" thingy didn't fail.... They just found a gap else where in the perimeter. We've been reworking our fencing and gates. They "found" the flaw in the master plan. No fault from the product. The only thing that might crop up over time. Is that they may work loose. Consider double nutting the bolts - that should keep them from rattling loose.
"Great Gate Latch"
So easy to install and use and is very secure!
"Works very well and easy to intall."
I also bought a much longer chain for those gates that the suppled chain was too short. Just cut the correct length and it works perfectly.
We bought one of these a while back and it works great. Bought another one for another gate and just installed it today and it's great. I opted to buy some shorter bolts (hardware store) since my panels are 1 5/8" (on the smaller side) so the provided bolts would stick out too much and be a hazard for the horses. Even with the shorter bolt, I put a second, rounded locking nut on the end of each bolt to protect against "horse gouging."
