This drop-bolt offers the option of padlock security, with the facility to store your padlock when not in use. A bolt retention feature prevents the rod from dropping and dragging across the driveways and also keeps the rod from being pulled out of the brackets when mounted to a gate. The housings are made of tough, rust-free polymers and the bolt is made from electro-polished stainless steel. The QBolt comes in two lengths – 24” and 40” (610mm and 1020mm) . An optional Base Plate helps retain the bolt into the ground surface and provides a neat, stylish finish. All models include alignment side-fixing legs for ease of installation and added fixing strength
