Dark Bronze Gate Stop
This solid dark bronze gate stop by Coastal Bronze will stop the gate in the closed position. The installation of a gate stop prevents damage to your gate latch by stopping the gate before it hits the latch bar.
Bronze gate latch arms will become weakened and eventually break if gates are allowed to slam against them.
Wood screws for installation
- 2" Tall by 2" Wide
- 1.5" Projection
There are two possible positions for the gate stop placement.
- Option 1: Install it to the post, and the gate will close against it.
- Option 2: 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.
- Dark Bronze
- Black Wax (10% upcharge and 2 weeks added processing time for black finish)

About This Bronze Hardware:
This bronze hardware contains 90% copper and 10% tin. When it first leaves the mold, the hardware is copper-penny colored. Next, the pieces are patina’d dark bronze. Finally, the hardware has an exterior-grade dark bronze-colored wax applied to it that adds to its weather- and wear-resistance. Bronze ages gracefully and may change in appearance due to varying environmental conditions. The wax helps maintain the color of the hardware for the long term under most conditions. On items like gate latches and door handles where your hand comes in contact with the material regularly: we’ve seen over time that the oils on your skin will slowly wear down the wax where the skin contacts the metal. On all other items where skin doesn’t come in contact with the hardware, you should see dark bronze coloration for the long term.
How does this hardware hold up to the elements? When submitted to a salt-water chamber test, this hardware began to patina at the 16-hour-mark, versus 10-hours for other name-brand, high end bronze products. A client recently wrote that this hardware installed on an waterfront boathouse two years ago looks slightly darker and shinier than the original, but looks otherwise exceptional.
The bottom line is: this hardware is the perfect choice for oceanfront, waterfront, and coastal installations.
