Gate stops are used to prevent swing gates from opening or closing too far, preventing damage to the catch plate or latch mechanisms on the gate.
Gate stops work by acting as a stopper when a gate door is opened or closed with force. The tab of the gate stop will latch on the surface of the gate post, preventing the latch from being damaged if too much force is applied.
First, you will need to install your gate latch and any other gate hardware. Next, hold the gate stop to the closing edge of the gate, either towards the bottom or middle of the gate, so that it fits flush when the gate is closed. Mark the drill holes you require, then attach and secure using the screws provided in the gate stop kit.
