I need a lockable back gate that can be opened from outside!

[color=green][b]Hello, I have been searching high and low for a suitable garden gate that can be opened from the outside. At the moment I have a gate that is padlocked on the inside.

All I can find are state of the art remote control gates.

Really all I need is a heavy gate that can have some kind of key lock fitted to it. Can anybody help! :? [/b][/color]

Simply Build It

You can fit a rim lock to almost any gate. Click on link below ... 071&m=1228

These locks are not meant for external use but we have had one on our own gate for 14 months now and once a month we spray it with WD 40. Its great. They fit easily on the inside of the gate with a hole drilled through the gate for the key. See the link below for WD 40 ... 071&m=1228
