A Correctly Fitted Gate Latch.

Ledged & Braced Batten Gate by Marcus Whitehead, Joiner/Builder.

Getting a gate to fit an opening is one thing, but getting the hardware to operate in the way it is intended is another.

Take a look at this video. A good joiner will always make sure that the sneck slides smoothly into its keeper, so that the gate closes itself when given a gentle push.

This gate was made & fitted by Marcus Whitehead Property Services in Ribchester, in between Preston & Blackburn, Lancashire.
