How can I lock my gate? There are a few different options for locking your gate. A little planning and research will help you to determine the best type of lock to put on your gate. In general, locking solutions fall into three categories:
- Lockable gate latches
- Padlock eyes
Lockable gate latches
These include a lock as either an integral part of the gate latch, or as an addition to the gate latch (such as a padlock slipped through a hole in the latch). These range from the most basic old-style gate latch that you tie a pull-string to, to highly engineered latches that have a lock as a part of the design. We have key lockable gate latches that have keyed cylinders either on one side, or on both sides.
See 360 Yardware’s selection of lockable gate latches.
Padlock eyes are a really simple and affordable option. You install one bracket to the edge of the gate and one to the edge of the post and when you want the gate to be locked, slide a padlock through. Available in stainless steel, stainless with a black finish, and bronze.
