Closing Latch

Installing a single gate

Reference; Midsummer Gates 


Below is a diagram for hanging a single gate on the face of a post.  We suggest the gate has 10mm overlap of the posts, the gate will open a full 180° and if using the rising hinge set the end of the gate will lift approximately 70mm per meter length of gate to 90°, so a 3.00m gate will at its end and at 90° lift approximately 210mm of the ground. Posts must be at least 135mm square.


Hinge sets are shown in this order,  1: ADJUSTABLE HINGE SET HOOK ON PLATES  2: ADJUSTABLE HINGE SET, BOTTOM HOOK TO DRIVE / TOP HOOK TO BOLT  3: ADJUSTABLE SELF CLOSING/RISING HINGE SET WITH HOOK ON PLATE. We also show a selection of closing latches and extras, all available to order with your gate from our hardware store. If you need any advice please contact us.
