Contemporary Bronze Lockable Flip Latch - Midnight Black Finish
This flip latch can be used in a few different ways: it's an elegant way to lock a gate. It's also a great single-sided gate latch.
If you have a double gate that you need to lock, the arm rotates up and across onto the fixed gate. With a padlock that you provide, you can lock the bolt in place, prohibiting the opening of either gate.
The arm measures 5-3/4". The set includes three parts: the backplate with arm, a support bracket, and an end bracket, which is bored to accept a padlock. Padlock not included.
This latch is suitable for both in-swinging and out-swinging gates. Will never rust.

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.
