Click Link on Page Load

Have a website up and running and I need a script (java script, jquery, ect) to click a link after the webpage loads.

Have a look at this page
http://www.kregtool.ca/jigs.html


After the page loads I need to be able to click one of the gallery links at the top of the page...


    All
    Kreg Jigs
    Kreg Shelf Pin Jig
    Pocket-Hole Machine
    Kreg Screws
    Kreg Wood Plugs
    Kreg Plastic Plugs
    Kreg DVDs
    Deck Jig
    Kreg Jig Accessories

doesn't matter which one, just need to be able to click the link to rearrange the images in the gallery. Try clicking each category and you will see what I mean. thanks.

Add the following code to the end of your document ready function (it's the only function in custom.js):
$(".filter .active").click();

This is where I have placed it, is there a better location in the document.

/*global jQuery:false */
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
"use strict";

	
		//add some elements with animate effect

		$(".big-cta").hover(
			function () {
			$('.cta a').addClass("animated shake");
			},
			function () {
			$('.cta a').removeClass("animated shake");
			}
		);
		$(".box").hover(
			function () {
			$(this).find('.icon').addClass("animated fadeInDown");
			$(this).find('p').addClass("animated fadeInUp");
			},
			function () {
			$(this).find('.icon').removeClass("animated fadeInDown");
			$(this).find('p').removeClass("animated fadeInUp");
			}
			
		);
		
		
		$('.accordion').on('show', function (e) {
		
			$(e.target).prev('.accordion-heading').find('.accordion-toggle').addClass('active');
			$(e.target).prev('.accordion-heading').find('.accordion-toggle i').removeClass('icon-plus');
			$(e.target).prev('.accordion-heading').find('.accordion-toggle i').addClass('icon-minus');
		});
		
		$('.accordion').on('hide', function (e) {
			$(this).find('.accordion-toggle').not($(e.target)).removeClass('active');
