Dark Bronze Lockable Flip Latch

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". 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.

Made of heavy duty dark bronze, this latch is not lacquered so it will darken naturally over time. This latch is suitable for both in-swinging and out-swinging gates. Will never rust.

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 bronze, we offer a coordinating gate stop. 

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.

Warranty
Coastal Bronze warrants all flat goods (non-locking) to be free of defects in material and craftsmanship for five years from the original invoice date. Coastal Bronze warrants all locking goods, including locks, latches and deadbolts, to be free of defects in material and craftsmanship for 1 year from the original invoice date. In areas of high humidity or proximity to ocean, warranty is 6 months. Coastal Bronze adds a patina to all products to simulate aged bronze. Finishes will develop a wear highlight and may change color based on environment. This is not considered a defect, but part of the natural beauty of aged bronze.
