Drop Bolts

Drop bolts are ideal for closing your garden door or garden gate. The latches are very strong, easy to assemble and can be mounted both vertically and horizontally. The name drop bolt is because these bolts are usually placed vertically and therefore 'fall' as it were. With the mounted ring you can leave the drop bolt open. At Wovar you can choose between a galvanized and a black version. This way you can have the bolt fit nicely with your garden fence or gate.

Assembly of the latches is very easy. The plate in which the iron pin is mounted has 6 mounting holes. So you simply screw on the bolt. For mounting tips, please refer to the product pages, where we recommend suitable screws, among other things. For extra safety, sometimes 2 drop bolts are used per door or gate.

Wovar's drop bolts are easy to install and ensure reliable locking of your garden gates and garden doors. You can choose from a galvanized and a black version, so that you can have the bolt match your door. The handy thing about drop latches is that they 'fall' automatically, as it were. A ring is mounted on the top of the pin, with which you lock the door. You can place this over the top of the mounting plate, leaving the bolt open. This way of locking is therefore very simple and very suitable for use with garden gates and doors.

Mounting the Drop Bolt

Installing a drop bolt is not difficult. You can use our screws 5 x 40 mm for this. You will find such screws in the range of garden screws. A black version is also available. We recommend that you always pre-drill with hardwood, so that you can easily screw in the screws. You can do this with a 3.5 mm hardwood drill bit, which can be found in the hardwood drill bit range. You can also find the recommended screws and hardwood drill bits on the product pages themselves, between the corresponding products.

Drop bolts are usually mounted on the top of a garden door or fence. The large plate with pin is then mounted above the door and the small plate in which the pin must fall is mounted on the door itself. If you want to place the bolt horizontally, you can place the plate with pin on the door itself as well as on the adjacent wall or fence. In all cases, make sure that the pin can fall exactly into the lock. For example, use a spirit level to mount the plates directly opposite each other.
