Hardware Tips

A Note About Gate Stops

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). 

If you don't have a gate stop on your gate, you need one! If no gate stop is installed on a gate, and the hinges or latch fail from the stress of that, no replacement will be given. We do offer metal gate stops now that can be installed after gate installation (if a wooden gate stop has not been installed). In cast iron, we offer a coordinating gate stop.

About This Iron Hardware:

Iron can rust in outdoor conditions. The difference in patina is part of the appeal of choosing iron as your material.
