Also known as fork collars and fork clamps, Fork Latch Hangers are essential components when installing gates on a chain link fence. These hangers are designed to clamp around the gate frame at the area where you would like to attach the fork latch. Enclose both pieces of the hanger around your gate frame, with the notched ends pointing downward. Use a nut and bolt (sold separately) to secure the end facing the gate interior interior. Next, slide the fork latch between the outer bolt holes on the opposite side and secure all three parts together with another nut and bolt. Allow the fork latch to swing up and down to verify that it'll secure the gate to the gate post.
