How To Fit Our Catches
The correct installation and maintenance of gates and gateposts will ensure the smooth running of our catches. Be assured, our catches allow for a little bit of gate drop over time unlike many other latches.
For the GBC Parkland and the GBC Estate first set the gate to open both ways by hanging it centrally between the gate posts with about a 50 mm gap between the gate and the gate post.
If the gate is to be used by pedestrians, then the catch should be fitted approximately 1 meter above the ground.
If the gate is for equestrian use, the catch should be fitted nearer the top of the gate so the handle just clears the gate ensuring easy reach from horseback.
When you have decided the best position for your catch fit the catch to the center of the gate post using four M10 X50 stainless steel coach screws.
