Rated 1 out of 5 by from Far from heavy duty As for many others reviewing this product, the bar snapped next to the first screw after a 10 days' use when the gate banged against the catch on a 30 degree swing in a mild breeze. Not my idea of heavy duty. I suppose I can't say I wasn't warned...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking catch Appears to be well made and quite sturdy. Works well. Would be better if black screws could be supplied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gate Catch Would agree with other reviewer.Mine also snapped off at the first screw hole due to the wind blowing gate shut.Would have been better made of forge steel instead off cast metal which is too brittle.Will not buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite a catch Nice heavy duty latch. Works great in that it self latches when gate is closed. However, it is advised to put a stop on the gate as the cast nature of the latch means that it will fracture if the gate is slammed shut in a high wind for instance. This is the second one bought precisely for that reason.
