Q Scot McLeod • 03/05/2018, 10:30:39 AM Can the Suffolk Gate Latch be locked - such as with a padlock? It is not obvious from the image on the web page? If Yes, Can you e-mail a copy of the installation instructions? Thanks, Scot
A 03/05/2018, 11:40:31 AM Hi Scot! This latch cannot be locked with a padlock unfortunately. We can provide you with instructions that are right from the manufacturer's website in order to assist you with the installation. How to Install the Suffolk Gate Latch: NOTE: to be used on gates up to 3 ½” thick. 1 Establish a desired position of thumb piece, normally about 4” from ground level. Measure to the center of the style and mark a vertical line 1½“ long. Drill a ½“ hole at each end of the line and drill or cut out to make a slot 1½“ x ½“. 2 From the front, pass the thumb bit through the slot ensuring it is positioned so that it can be raised and lowered to its fullest extent. Also, it should fall back under its own weight when raised. Secure back plate with screws provided. 3 Moving to back of the door/gate, position the latch tail so that it is level and resting across the top of the thumb bit. It should overlap on to the door/gate frame by 1 ¼”. Secure latch mount plate with screws provided. 4 Slide the keep over the end of the latch tail. Keeping the latch bar level, lift keep up as far as possible without moving latch tail. Secure keep with screws provided.
Q Mark • 10/21/2018, 6:50:31 PM Does this come with a stop and can it be locked? If not can you recommend add ones for this purpose.
