Brushed Stainless Steel Gate Stop
If you're having a new gate built, be sure your gate provider makes and installs a gate stop for your gate. Gate stops prevent hinge, latch, and gate damage and prolong gate life.
What is a gate stop? Gate stops are typically made of wood running the entire length of the gate. They are attached to the jamb or post in such a way that prevents the latch bar/hinges/gate from taking the force of the gate closing (instead the gate stop takes the force).
These stainless steel gate stops can be installed after gate installation (if a wooden gate stop has not been installed). Powder-coated satin black. Screws included.
- 2"h x 1-3/4" one side of the "L" x 1-3/4" the other side of the "L"
- 1/8" thick
There are two possible positions for the gate stop placement.
First option: install it to the post, and the gate will close against it.
Second option: install the gate stop to the gate. When the gate closes, the gate stop hits the post before the latching arm hits the post. This is also the setup you would use for a double gate.
