Drop rods, or cane bolts as they
are often called are now available in 304 series stainless steel! Drop rods are also
powder coated for a long lasting finish. Use these drop rods on practically any type
of gate or door, i.e. wood, aluminum, ornamental iron, and steel. Drop rods are
used on double driveway-type gates to secure the two gates together in the center where
they meet. Pair one of our drop rods with any of our latches for a secure fit. Drop
rods have small tabs cast in them that allow one to open the gate and conveniently swivel
the drop into an 'hold-open' position.
