Fitted one last week with a prox tag reader!

The gates are actuall not up yet.  I wanted to keep the front of the gates level with the front of the fencing, but could set them back in the opening and use normal latches.  Would prefer to keep them forward though  Undecided

They're tall gates, 2m, or just under.

This is what it looks like.  Because of where the gate sits, and the size of the posts, a suffolk latch wont work.  The double sided bolt seems the best idea to me?

I should say, a couple gates being different sides of the house.

It's not to secure, just to hold shut.

something may exist i dont know
is it just to hold or secure
my thoughts a long vertical  bolts on the end off one gate with the operating handle able to swing to the inside or outside face
with "V" brackets or pins on the other gate to locate onto the bolt shaft or into the other gate as you close them together at the same time

Gate bolt, both sides
Oct 25th, 2013, 7:49pm
 
I am fitting a couple gates at home which are closed timber (can't reach over, around or through).  Due to where they close on the post date opening direction, I cant use gate catches. I would like to use a bolt, but be able to unbolt from both sides.  A hole through the gate for a hand would do, but I sue prefer a bolt that can be opened/closed from both sides.

Any suggestions?
