Ring gate latch

By readyeddie

"Good value product although the twist detail on the rings was not well defined. Also the connection between the ring and fixing plate could have been a little tighter."

Good value, some drawbacks
4 Jul 2012
By Doofer
, Northamptonshire
"This latch is reasonably well made and looks attractive. All fixings are included, which is a plus.
One issue is that the retaining keep is not very deep, so the latch bar can ride up if the gate is subject to variable winds. Another potential problem is common to most latches of this type: if the gate is heavy and swings shut at speed, the keep is easily broken.
These may or may not be significant issues, depending on the application."

Ring Gate Latch Black
11 Jul 2013
By rotcombe
, Winchester
"I bought this product to replace an identical one purchased from Screwfix 2 years ago. With the first the handle came off regularly due to poor manufacture and I had to keep refitting it. After two years the rose snapped and I was forced to replace it with an identical one or modifying the gate. I hope this one is last a lot longer."

Poor Manufacture

"Would not use this again. One of the handles square holes to receive the rod is too big so will not operate the latch."

Doesn't do what it says on the
18 Jan 2012
By Andy333
, leicester
"The latch ring broke free (circlip on back came off) during fitting.
Flimsy lightweight brackets and the keep hook profile is such that the latch does not stay in the hook. A slight push and it rises up out of the hook and the gate opens.
Wasted 30 minutes fitting it and now got to remove it and return to store. Pain . . . .
From the reviews of all the gate latches it seems screwfix are using different suppliers for the same products as some are described as heavy good quality and some flimsy. One review had two of the same but they were quite different quality."
