The swing-out gate latch is made out of galvanized steel and features a spring-loaded locking ring to keep your horse swing gate closed. It wraps around the swing gate frame and attaches back onto itself. It has a 14" long chain and comes with a splice link and two staples to install on the wooden support posts. This latch is very easy to use and only requires one hand; great for when on horseback or when you only have one hand bringing your horses in. Available in either a hot-dip galvanized or powder-coated black finish.
