Color Chain Gate Link Forks are typically paired with matching fork clamps and carriage bolts to create a complete fence latch kit. They are usually sold separately so that you can mix and match post and framework sizes. Fork latches are one of the most cost-effective ways to latch a chain link walk gate because they are so affordable and easy to use. You can lock fork latches with a padlock for extra security.

Place each half of the fork clamp around your gate upright at the spot where you want your latch to sit. Place the Fork (sold separately) between the two halves so that the hole on the fork lines up with the outside hole on the clamp. Slide a 5/16" x 1-1/4" carriage bolt through the clamp half, then the fork, then the other clamp half. Secure the assembly with the nut. Slide the other carriage bolt through the holes on the inside part of the clamp and tighten with a nut. The fork part of the latch should move freely inside the clamp.
Tip: If your carriage bolts are galvanized, you can spray paint them with a rust protecting spray paint to match them to your fence and hardware.
