very poor product. same with tech supportWe bought this online and seemed to be exactly what we were looking for.
Comes in a nice box and products are very sturdy.
UNFORTUNETLY the looking mechanism inside latch can barely get out of its own way. The smallest amount of back pressure and it won't open...
I have spent almost a full day tinkering with it........
They did everything right except for the main part !!!!
Maybe we received a faulty part? Who knows cuz you won't be able to get ahold of tech support!

DurableI've used this lock for more than 10 years and am generally pleased with it. Parts have been easy to order and tech support has been very helpful when needed. I have it installed with a control board supported by a 12-volt battery and charger which makes it open consistently unless the gate is jammed against the mechanism. I'm not sure how it would work with only AA batteries. The least durable part is the push button, which I'm currently replacing after patching it up over the years due to degradation in the sunlight. A 12-volt battery lasts 2-3 years before it won't hold enough charge to open the gate. All other original parts are still working.

Great product!!Purchased this product along with other accessories about 4 years ago, still working perfectly. No problems at all. Initial problems with getting the programming going, but once I got over it in few minutes, bingo!! It started working non stop till now.

Easy to install but won't program.The installation was very easy. However, the lock opens with the touch of any button. I can't program it because as soon as I hit the program button it just unlocks the gate. 'Scratching my head'. The manual that came with it is not really clear where the positive/negative goes on the doorbell switch. I'm about to pack it up and send it back to Amazon.
