3 years3 yearssoggsogg posted:

It must be a seperate latch assembly?
I dont see how the paradigm lock could catch seeing as it doesnt seem to have a spring behind the bolt?

Hey Deefeez,

Ours was $2619, that was 1meter high dwarf wall rendered and then 700mm high modwood decking. Is this how yours was supposed to be?
