STEP 3 Review your gate size and configuration

Single Gate

  • for 42″ wide openings.
  • intended for pedestrian use only.

STEP 4 Review the recommended hardware

Mounting with Old-Fashioned Heavy Duty Hinges (8292)

  • 12″ is the recommended length for this application.
  • Flush mounting is the most common method of installation. The hinge is mounted directly onto the face of the gate and post. We recommend a minimum 1/4” space be maintained between the gate and post to allow for expansion of the wood in changing seasons.

Latching with Twisted Ring Latch – Flush Mount (4149)

  • Operates from both sides, just like a door knob.
  • Allows for either a left or right handed installation.
  • Easy to install, requiring only a single 3/4” round hole.
  • Intended for use on gates up to 5” thick (with standard key stock provided).
