How to fit the catches...
The correct installation and maintenance of gates and gateposts will ensure the smooth running of our catches. GBCatches do allow for a little bit of gate drop over time unlike many other latches.
First set the gate to open both ways by hanging it between the gate posts with about a 40 mm gap for the Estate catch and 50mm for the larger County catch between the gate and the gate post.
If the gate is to be used by non riding traffic, then the catch should be fitted approximately 1 meter above the ground.
If the gate is to be ridden through, it should be fitted at the top of the gate. So that it can be easily reached from the horseback.
When you have decided the best position for your catch fit the catch to the center of the gate post using four coach screws.
