Our vintage gate got a new handle on Sunday. When it was purchased off craigslist, it had a dead bolt lock with no key. We kept it closed for years with a bungie chord.
When we contacted Jordan Booth for welding projects, he suggested that we just replace the dead bolt with a new handle. He said he could weld on a latch box and paint it black to match. Great idea!
Our gate now closes and functions beautifully!
