Changing main gate latch for a customer, who found that he couldn’t latch the gate. After arriving onsite, we found that the latch had spoilt, as the mechanism that operated the latch had snapped off. The internal rod could not retract as a result. So we proceeded to replace it.
Panels 1 and 2 show how the latch looked like before replacement, and panels 3 and 4 show the faulty part of the latch. Panel 5 is a comparison between the old latch and the new one, and the last panel shows the newly replaced gate latch.
