Slide Bolt Latches are
commonly used on wood gates, however are universal in design so will work for a variety of
applications. Latches have provision for adding a padlock. Latches typically may
only be opened unlocked from the inside of the gate. However if the gate is short
enough, one may reach over to unlatch. To operate latch, lift up "u-shaped"
lever, and slide left or right to open or close. Push "u-shaped" lever
down, straddling the small piece of angle steel, and secure padlock for
security. These latches are not self-latching. They are heavy duty and feature a
rust resistant finish. Products are usually available for immediate shipment.
