Industrial Drop Rod Latch For
Double Drive Chain Link Gates
Pressed Steel - Galvanized and Welded
Drop rods, or cane bolts as they are sometimes called, are used to secure a pair of gates where they meet in the center of an opening. 'Pin' your commercial or industrial double gates into the ground with a strong industrial drop rod made to last! Drop rod guides simply bolt to vertical upright of gate frame. 1-3/8" tubing is used as the drop rod. The drop rod slides through the guides and has a welded fork approx. in the middle for convenience. Drop rod should also have a stop welded on bottom of it to prevent the rod from being removed from the guides. Drop rod has built in latch and is padlockable. Latch may be unlocked and opened from the inside and outside of the gate. Drop rods usually have a sleeve or centerstop placed in the ground for the rod to drop into. View centerstops here.
You may order pressed steel drop rod fittings below, such as two drop rod guides and one fork, and make your own drop rod from a piece of fence tubing (guides and forks fit a 1-3/8" drop rod). Drop rod fork can be installed to a piece of 1-3/8" tubing with bolts, or self-tap screws. Consider installing an additional nut and bolt, or screw at bottom to prevent unauthorized removal.
Alternatively, you may order a 'complete set' designed for 1-5/8" or 2" gates frames, and we will build it for you. 'Complete Sets' ship as a fully welded drop rod with a welded 'stop' to prevent easy removal of drop rod from guides. Simply install drop rod guides to your 1-5/8", or 2" gate frame with nuts and bolts.
