Question about Stanley Garden

I was looking at buying a stanley lock S836-171. Do you have to use the key every time you use the gate? Or is the key just to lock the gate when on vacation?

Hi maraleequanb... I do not know this lock personally but according to what I am reading you do not have to use the key every time, only if you want to lock it while your away. I have found this quote about it on a website along with some others you might be interesting in reading . Please take time to rate me thumbs up **************************************************************************************************************** "4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gate Latch - Installation Instructions lacking, May 4, 2010 By M. D. Heidenreich "DIYWhenICan" (Dayton, OH USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME) Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stanley Lockable Gate Latch With Dual Access (S836-171) [Misc.] I installed this gate on a 6' tall by 4' wide cedar gate latching to another smaller gate section. The smaller one has the post the larger side has the catch. The ability to push a button and open from the inside was the key selling point for me, being able to lock it is secondary but still will be nice when on vacation. We had one similar but we had to drill a hole and run a string and half the time manually latch the gate. This latch solved that problem completely. Gate now shuts and latches without a hitch. Now to the installation instructions: First - DO NOT USE the little grey PVC tube unless you have a hollow vinyl post - would of been nice if this was in bold print somewhere in the instructions. I tried to use it on the wood gate and spent 45 minutes on it before I finally found the teeny tiny writing saying not to use unless on vinyl. Second: I typically do well with pics. in instructions rather than a bunch of drawn out written explanations - not so with these instructions. From the look and my experience you could install on any gate set up so chances are you can make it work. I read other reviews complaining about the plastic and was prepared for that but was pleasently surprised with the solid feel and sturdy construction - time will tell but if it lasts two years, for the money, I'd say it's money well spent. My 4 stars are due to the instructions not the product. "

How to program a universal gate remote ?


If you still have the remote that came with the gate controller then you simply match switch positions on both remotes. If that isn't possible then you must open the gate actuator to expose the receiver in it to see what position the switxhes are in then set the universal to match. Be aware that all universal remotes may not have enough code combinations to work. If that's the case then you'll have to get the correct remote for the gate actuator.

The back hatch on My 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette will not shut. I had the van locked while the gate was up and my mom tried slamming it.Could she have bent it or something please help and thanks


The short answer is yes, something could have bent when that gate was closed with the latch already closed. Look at the latch and make sure it wasn't jammed before you do a full replacement. If the latch is closed use a screw driver to open the latch while using the key to open the gate. Once you get the latch open try closing and locking the gate.

Hello-I have an 06 Yukon Denali and the rear door/hatch/gate does not lock. I am told I need to purchase a lock actuator. Any idea where to find one? Thanks, Jon


It should still be able to be locked and unlocked by the key, but if you mean locking by the remote, then the actuator is bad. These can be purchased from a dealership, parts yard, or I prefer to buy from Ebay. If you go to Ebay, just look up 2006 Yukon actuator. You may get a better price also.

1994 Jeep Grand cherokee rear lift gate


Well My 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the same problem and we had to just cut into the lift gate panel from the inside. It required cutting plastic but with a 94 looks arent everything and a working lift gate was worth it. But then we pealed back this black plastic mat under the panel and lifted up on the release bar(verticle bar that lifts the latch) and once we got it open we adjusted a little clamp that had slipped. Dont adjust it too much or when u lock it it wont lock! But sorry i dont know the name of the parts. But then u can screw the panel back in and it wont look to bad besides some cuts.

Lost keys to security gates living in a mews


If this is a shared entrance - you need to contact the main keyholder - maybe a grounds management company. Most systems like this operate under a restricted profile key system. New keys are only issued against signatures.

If it is just your own property - Provide proof of this to a registered locksmith for them to change locks.

What ever you do,don't waste you time and get talked into by microsuc to pay twice for a key then what you can buy a legit copy for. But make sure you buy one. Just because gates is the richest
man in the world for there underhanded ways,and locking you into problems. Kinda of like thieves. Now just because there are a thousand company's who's founder should have 4 times the money then gates does,but don't because they where human and not thieves and steal ideas just to get rich. Still means that you need to buy a few computers because if the mobo breaks and you don't get it replaced with the same exact one you have to buy it again.

Its too bad that a company like ford that built this country,didn't
act like micro, then they would be 1000 times richer then gates.
Instead of going out of business and people with no jobs.
