3 Types of Chain Link Fence Cantilever Fittings

  • Cantilever Gate Latch
    • A chain link cantilever gate latch is often used for a sliding chain link fence gate. Chain link fence gates can slide manually or automatically with a gate opener. Cantilever gate latches are typically bolted to the sliding gate frame.  Cantilever gate latches can be padlocked for additional safety and security.
  • Cantilever Post Latch
    • You cannot install a chain link cantilever gate without a cantilever gate latch and a cantilever post latch. The two components are critical to proper function. Chain link cantilever post latches are typically bolted to the latch post so that when the gate slides into place the gate latch can connect with the post latch.
  • Cantilever Roller
    • A chain link cantilever roller is the third critical component to a properly functioning chain link cantilever gate. Cantilever gate rollers are available in a variety of materials and are installed directly on the gate for easy, effortless rolling. Choose the chain link cantilever roller material that matches your chain link fence gate and enjoy smooth manual or automatic rolling with your new chain link cantilever gate.
