Designed for retrofitting existing gates with posts that are 1-1/2" or 2" thick.
Dimensions: 2 W x 1-½ D x 6-1/8 H
M210 or M210DC with a drive-in deadbolt.
M210 or M210DC with an adjustable deadbolt or latchbolt. NOTE: the face plate of the adjustable bolt will not be flush with the gatebox. Instead, it will extend approximately 1/16th inch toward the post. This will not interfere with the operation of the gate unless the clearance between the gate and the post is 1/16th inch or less. In this case, you will need to make the clearance wider or make a 1/16th inch recessed area in the gatebox for the face plate.
Material: 14 gauge steel
What is a gate box?
A gate box is simply a hollow box made of heavy-gauge metal that is exactly the right size and shape to attach a lock to.
Gate boxes do not open.
Gate boxes come in many different sizes and shapes. Gate boxes are designed to exactly fit a specific Lockey lock.
We carry gate lock mounting hardware for almost every Lockey lock.
When do you need a gate box?
Gate boxes are used on gates that are not solid, but instead have vertical rungs or even grids or mesh surfaces which you can't secure a lock to.
Gate boxes are welded into a gate, usually by a fence company, and become a permaent part of the gate. Then, the gate and gate box are usually powder coated all at the same time, so everything matches.
How expensive are gate boxes?
Prices for gate boxes vary according to their size and material they are made from.
However, it is usually faster, cheaper, and easier to purchase a Lockey gate box than to have your fence company try to build one from scratch.
What type of gate boxes are available?
Gate boxes come in two types. Choose the material that matches your gate:
Heavy-duty steel (14 gauge) with a mill finish.
What back set will you need?
All gate boxes have a 2-3/8" backsets, so be sure your latchbolt has either a 2-3/8" or an adjustable latchbolt.
The lock spindle and support pins go through the large opening.
The round holes at the top and bottom of the box are for the lock’s machine screws. These are used to hold the front and back of the lock together on the gate box.
Where are gate boxes typicaly used?
Gate boxes are often used on pool gates, back yard fences, beach gates, dumpster's gates, storage gates, driveway entrances, or any place that needs a super-strong surface of just the right height, width, and thickness.
Can I use a magnetic latchbolt with a gatebox?
Magnetic latchbolts (which can only be ordered for a Lockey 1150, 1150DC, 1600, 1600DC lock), are not compatible with gate boxes unless you are able and willing to make the following minor adjustment: the rectangular face plate on the magnetic latchbolt is slightly larger than the recessed area of the gate box, so if you want it to fit flush with the edge of the gate lock mounting hardware, you will need to trim a little off the edge.
