30 Sep A Keyless, Battery-Free Gate Lock from Lee Valley
This clever device (item 01S2010, $54.50) is a woodworker’s dream. It’s easy to install, requires no wiring, is relatively inexpensive, and can secure a yard or garden gate from nosy neighbors, children, wandering pets and brother-in-law trying to ‘borrow’ a lawnmower…
This sturdy gate lock lets you control access to your fenced yard without needing to install a padlock, keep track of keys or rely on battery-powered electronics. It has a combination pad that you can operate with one hand to open the gate from the outside, and a fingertip-release latch to unlock it from the inside. You can reset the combination as often as you wish. With a zinc die-cast body housed in a thick, hard plastic shell, the lock is rust-resistant and weatherproof. A sliding shutter protects the combination pad when not in use, and a durable latch cover hinders anyone from manipulating the latch arm by reaching over the fence or gate.
It can be easily installed using only a few tools and the included mounting screws. The instructions are included.
