Kennel Gate-latch

We developed our kennel gate-latch to solve a number of problems with traditional dog kennels:

  • First, we wanted a latch that could be operated with one hand.  We assume your other hand is busy controlling the dog. 
  • Second, we wanted a latch that contained all types of dogs.  Large dogs push at the top of the gate while small dogs push at the bottom. 
  • Finally, we wanted a latch that would allow the gate to swing into the kennel - or out into the aisle.  This allows you to choose which direction you need the gate to go (to contain a more aggressive dog - or to work around cleaning equipment).
