Gate latch


For the life of me I cannot find a type of gate latch or even a picture of it. It is the type that is on top of the gate and swings up. The closest thing I can find is called a throw over or gate loop for wood gates

but I'm looking for the type for chain link gates. Would really appreciate it if someone knows what it's called.
Thanks

Gate latch


Thanks for the replies but nope. It is just like the picture I posted but it is rounded to fit over the frame of a chain link gate instead of wood. They're extremely common and I just can't understand why I have spent hours on the internet searching and can't find anything.
Thanks again for any help.

You will never find one that will fit over the pipe they use for fencing, unless you have it custom made at a metal/welding shop. That is the only way I have seen them done.

They fab them in a shop somewhere, or can fab them in house. The over the pipe latches, like what the OP is looking for, for metal gates, you have to find a place that can order them, or simple, just get a local metal shop to make you one.

They are all going to look like the picture the OP posted. Here they have 2" and 3" throw over latches http://www.gatehingesboltslatchesand...x.asp?catid=52
