HANDLE
1. Make a straight, level line on the side of the
gate at the desired height for the latch handle.
FRONT TEMPLATE
2. Use the included templates to mark the location of the latch.
 Place the front template on the “pull” side of the gate so the
triangular locating notch is centered on the line you drew in
step one.
 Mark all hole locations using the front template.
 Repeat this process on the back side of the gate using the
back template.
 Drill a 3/4” hole at the center hole on the front and back of
the gate as indicated on the template.*
 Drill 1/8” pilot holes at all other marks from the template.
*Note: Assure all holes are straight and level.
POST SIZE
3. Use the chart above and the size of your fence
post to determine the length of the lock spindle
and spindle housing (step 4). Use 2 pliers to
break the spindles at the designated mark. DO
NOT BEND THE SPINDLE WHEN BREAKING IT
OFF.
* Spindle housing of this size is included
4. If the spindle housings included are not the
proper length, cut the housing according to the
above chart.
 Assure the cut is straight and square.
Eliminate any burrs that result from cutting.
 Insert the spindle housing into the back
handle assembly completely, approximately
½”.
5. From the back side of the gate, slide the
back handle assembly through the 3/4" hole in
the gate. The assembly must sit flush to the
face and side of the gate. Center the assembly
with line drawn on the side of the gate and
attach the back housing using two 1-¼” screws
and one ¾” screw.
6. Install the front handle assembly.
 Rotate the lock spindle on the back handle assembly
counterclockwise until it stops.
 Assure the front handle assembly is in the unlocked position.
 Align the lock spindle and spindle housing with the front handle
assembly and slide the front handle assembly up against the
gate post.
 The front handle assembly must be flush with the gate. If it is
not, the spindle housing may need to be trimmed.
 Once the front handle assembly is in place, secure it with two 1¾”screws into the face of the assembly and two ¾” screws into
the side.

7. Configure the front handle assembly and
the keeper assembly for left-handed or righthanded operation as per your install.
 The keeper assembly can be slid out of the
mounting plate so that the mounting plate
can be rotated.
 The front handle assembly has a lower
cover that may need to be moved to the
bottom of the front handle assembly.
8. Install the keeper assembly:
 With the gate closed, draw a line on the fence post under the
front handle assembly.
 Position the keeper assembly on fence post so the bottom edge
is 1/8” above the scribe line and install using four ¾” screws.
 Adjust the keeper so that it is centered in the opening of the
front handle assembly. Slide the keeper up to uncover the
horizontal adjustment plate and secure with two of the small
adjustment locking screws.
 Slide the keeper back down and align the center hole on the
keeper with the fourth hole from the bottom of the mounting
plate. Secure with one adjustment locking screw.
9. Close the gate to ensure the latch is operating as intended. Once closed, the
latch should engage. Actuating the handle should dis-engage the latch. If the latch
does not engage, the keeper should be adjusted accordingly.
ADJUSTMENT:
To adjust the keeper assembly vertically or horizontally, remove the associated locking screw(s), slide to the required
position and reinstall the locking screw(s).
TROUBLESHOOTING:
If the lock does not lock properly, you may need to remove the front handle assembly and make sure the lock spindle
is turned counterclockwise all the way and the front handle assembly is in the unlocked position.
