The aluminium door used to have the latch installed on the wall. And the door used to swing right out to latch to it.
Because the height of the retaining wall was over a metre, we installed this fence. I need to reinstall the door stop.
- It is laser-cut aluminium panels with a white mesh to enhance the pattern from the other side.
- It is on timber posts.
- The bottom board is only 1 inch thick.
- The panels are not strong enough to take the door stop.
- The hook needs to be about 9" high.
I was thinking of using a 4x4 square tanalised post to lift the hook up. If the bottom boards had been more substantial, I would have skew nailed it. I don't see two galvanized brackets on either side of the post being too strong to hold it in place.
Any ideas ?
