I need a bright idea...

I'm adding a gate latch that opens from both sides to my new vinyl privacy fence gate. It operates like a regular door knob where you just turn the handle and it protracts/retracts the latch. My problem is this...

The gate sits in the middle of the posts, so I can't attach the latch catch to the side of the post, it must be in the inside center of the post. I can't cut a hole either because the edge of the gate sits about 3/4 in. away from the post. I need something to attach to the inside center of the post that will catch the latch. Any ideas?

How much distance is between the door and the post?

How far does the latch extend outside of the door ?(for latching purposes)

I think I understand what you are trying to do. Any chance of getting any pictures to view?
