On a recent trip to Ireland we found this style of latch
in common use throughout the countryside. We have made some modifications so
that it will work with European Style
Bar Gates and with our Maine Board Gate, Cape Cod Gate or any other
Wood Rail Gate.
The use of the elongated escutcheon plate as a receiver
on the gate post will allow for some gate and post movement, and it is
easily installed by drilling a few holes, or routing a slot to receive the
bar. You can use the supplied Cotter Pin to keep the latch locked in the
closed position, or use a padlock (not included) for added security.
