Found at Home Depot, Lowe’s, your local home improvement shop or even online, the automatic gate latch, or sometimes called gravity latch. Part of the latch attaches to the wooden fence post, with the second part of the latch attaching to the tubing gate.


To complete the frame, cover one side of the gate with vertical cedar boards that match the adjoining fence. Screw one side of the hinges to the fence post, and align the gate between the adjoining gate posts and screw in the other side of the hinges to the gate.
If you have a wooden fence gate and you want to secure it with a latch, consider building this attachment yourself. NOTE: Decide the width of the gate opening, then factor in a slight gap of approximately 1 inch, so there's room for the hinges and latch that will attach to the gate and fence.
