Gate Locks Cons:
As with anything else, you get what you pay for, and in this case, for the higher quality gate locking mechanisms, you would have to be willing to spend. Some of these gate locks can get quite pricey. Some of the heavier duty gate locks may require some technical setup. If you are not experienced in this area, you may be required to find or hire someone to help you get it all installed.

This is a gate lock from the Stanley brand. They call this the Stanley lock and latch deluxe. Relatively simple to install as it only requires one hole to be drilled in the post. Designed with materials that won’t rust, and it will stand up to any weather conditions and last a very long time. You can use the key to lock and unlock from either side, and you can open the latch from either side of the gate. Click the image for more specifications and installation instructions.
