Gates, latches and hinges


Guy King

Who was asking about self-closing hinges for gates, and latches that
could be easily opened from each side?

This is how it's done in Coalbrookdale....

The latch bolt is withdrawn by the lever rising from the top of the
gate, so horsebods can use it easily. The gate swings closed because of
the two-pin lower hinge and the latch catches because whichever side the
gate shuts from the bolt, guided by the ramp, lifts the appropriate hook
which then falls and traps the bolt.




That's really clever! Anyone know who makes them?
