I unfortunately found out the hard way that there needs to be at least 4 inches from the gate to the mounting post. I only left 1 inch when I set my post. When I got the latch I realized my mistake and had to cut into my post to gain enough clearance. (luckily I had an 8 inch post so it does not look too bad).

About 3 inches of space between your gate and post to install gate and latch.
