This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP Curiculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Homesteading

In this Badge Bit you will make a gate latch that can be operated with one hand. You can use any materils: wood, iron, bits and pieces from other projects.

Here are some articles and videos for your inspiration:

Here is a cute picture of a wood one:





Here's a short video and article about an interesting idea of a gate latch.







To complete this BB minimum requirements are:

        - figure out how you can build a one handed latch from things you have around or repurposed materials
        - gather all materials you need to build a one handed latch
        - build the latch and make it work properly


To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must post pictures of the following:

        - the gate that needs a latch
        - all the materials you need to build the latch
        - pictures of you building the latch
        - picture of the latch mounted on the gate

Or post a 2 minute video of the above work.          
 
Arch enemy? I mean, I don't like you, but I don't think you qualify as "arch enemy". Here, try this tiny ad:
