Custom Gate Latch produced by 360 Yardware

To begin the custom process, please contact us and provide as much of the following information as possible:

  • Type of product(s) needed
  • Dimensions needed (if there are any dimensions that constrain your project)
  • Preferred material
  • Photos, sketches, or renderings of the project
  • Preferred finish

With this information we can visualize your project and begin to estimate what would be required to create it.

When you’re planning for a custom hardware project, budget and timeline are two factors to consider. In general, custom hardware costs more than off-the-shelf hardware. Below we’ve listed some of the factors involved in pricing custom hardware:

  • Minor modifications to an off-the-shelf product (different finish, slightly different dimensions to accommodate an installation peculiarity) can raise the price just slightly compared to starting fresh with a brand new custom product
  • Material choice: stainless steel is the most expensive material, followed by bronze, then aluminum.
  • Choice of finish: powdercoating or a brushed finish require time and material that becomes part of the whole picture.
  • Degree of engineering: the more complex the item, the more engineering required. Spring-loaded latches require more engineering than gravity latches; heavy duty hinges that will support hundreds of pounds must be precisely made to carry the load.
Lead-time for custom projects vary by season, but generally fall between 2 weeks and 6 weeks depending on the scope of the job.
