How to Install Thumb Latch Gate Hardware

I have an old door that I repurposed as a garden gate that swings into my yard. I love the look of the old door but I wasn’t crazy about the latch hardware I had installed. I couldn’t open the gate from the outside of the yard.  I decided to get a thumb gate latch instead and it was really easy to install. Here’s how to install thumb latch gate hardware!

Materials

  • Gate Latch Kit
  • Drill
  • 1/2″ drill bit
  • Screwdriver bits
  • Chisel
