We have just developed a new adapter for the Batt-Latch, which allows you to easily open or close a standard pipe gate. The adapter fits a Batt-Latch into the gate frame, with a spare chain hook. A new cam is fitted to the timer, which triggers the built-in latch at the programmed release time. This drops the spare gate chain, and the gate moves to the opposite position. The gate is pulled open or closed by a shock cord, spring, gas strut or inner tube (your choice).
This new latch can hold a load of up to 200kg, whereas the Batt-Latch gearbox is limited to 7kg. This means you can control steers, bulls, deer, or sheep behind heavier gates if you need to, using the timer.
OTHER USES: Break-feeding horses, feral deer and pig capture, securing free-range hens in their coops at night, border dyke irrigation timers.
NEW OPTIONS: We have developed a 5km range remote trigger option, see other product listings.
