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.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

If the gate is to be used by non riding traffic, then the catch should be fitted approximately 1 meter above the ground.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

When you have decided the best position for your catch fit the catch to the center of the gate post using four coach screws.
