Please see bottom of page for EZ Latch ordering instructions.
The EZ Latch fits a wide range of gates including the Steel Board Gates and any other vinyl, wood or pipe style gate. It includes provision to lock the gate using a standard pad lock and a convenient loop to hang the lock when not in use.
This “horse proof” latch will prevent even the most curious horse intent on escaping from opening the gate. The EZ Latch assembly is cleverly designed with many unique features including:
Two-Way Operation. Allows gates to be opened or closed from either direction while on your horse. The internal heat-treated alloy-steel drop-plates are lifted with a finger to open and drop when the gate is thrown closed.
Prevents Gate Lean. A stainless steel latch plate upon which the latch pin rests when the gate is closed, alleviating the weight on the gate post.
Corrosion-Free. Latch pin end made with shock absorbing rubber bushing covered with a stainless steel contact roller. Corrosion resistant washers are included for adjusting the pin horizontally up to 1.5 inches. The entire powder-coated housing is made in a strong cast-aluminum alloy.
Fully Adjustable. Latch housing has upper and lower mount bosses that enable vertical adjustments anytime during and after installation. The mount-pin is furnished with 7 thick adjustment-washers to allow proper pin-to-latch engagement.
Padlock Slit. (picture below) The housing has a slit in the upper right if you wish to use a lock. This will keep both drop-plates down, not allowing the gate to be opened in either direction.

Like the Steel Board fence, the EZ Latch is offered in textured-black and gloss-white powder-coat. The versatile design makes it easy to use on most wood or vinyl fence systems, including any round-pipe post, as well as the Steel Board fence system. With the EZ Latch your gate will be held closed securely and can be opened only by you and not your horse.

EZ Latch and Ground Anchor combination for dual gates. An EZ Latch housing is mounted onto the gate with the ground anchor. This allows for quick opening and closing of one gate and the ability to open both when needed. This is mostly used for setups where you need the dual-gate opening-width to move equipment in and out, but frequently have people and horses moving through only one of the gates. The EZ Latch even allows a rider to open and close the gate while still on their horse.

Many customers order a second ground tube per gate to hold the gate in both the open and closed positions.
