My hysterical laughter echoed down the drive as I put my arms around Hubby today.
The gates are still ‘nearly finished’ and he was ready to put the furniture on them so that we could actually secure them with a catch and lock rather than blocks and rope.
I’m pleased to say my laughter and hug were returned as we could both see the funny side of our dilemma.
Neither of us had given it a second thought, other than to ensure that the catch we purchased was suitable to be used with a padlock.
The perfect candidate for the job.
Just one small snag.
These are designed for gates that open inwards.
Ours open outwards, and as we don’t want the catch on the outside, we are thinking of alternatives.
They still look good though!
