Hi, I manage an allotment site where one member (getting on a bit in years) insists on driving on another persons plot with his car. What I urgently need to do somehow stop one of the two gates to the site from opening. The gate has a riser bar on one side which goes into the ground holding the gate secure. Ideally I want to somehow fit a lock to this but cannot for the life of me comeup with a solution. I thought of drilling through the side of the gate but as the metal is 1/2" thick, this will take too long to do. An alternative was to drill through the riser bar and fit a padlock through, which would stop the bar from being raised and hence stop the gate from opening on one side. I need a quick solution before he gets back from holiday and causes more havoc.
Sorry I can't upload an image from my documents, I don't have a url for it.
