DecoMold Hinge - This is made of glass-fiber reinforced molding technology. It’s an ornamental hinge that won’t rust, stain or bind. Built from a polymer and slightly thicker than a metal hinge, this self-closing hinge is compatible with any gate and can support up to 55 lbs.
Plain “T” Hinge – It’s the basic metal hinge used for large gates and barns. It comes in black and is rust-resistant. This item is sold in singles, pairs and in a package of twenty. Other hinges available are Kwik-Fit Hinges, Multi-Adjust Hinges and standard Butt Hinges.
Magna-Latch – This magnetic gate latch requires the face of the gate and fence to be on the same plane for the latch to work properly. When the gate is pushed shut, a high-powered magnet pulls the locking bolt into the receiver, making it a self-closing gate.
Adjustable Gravity Latch – Standard latches like the Gravity Latch use a striker bar on one side of the gate, while an angled plate and receiver attach on the post. Once the bar is closed, the gate can’t be re-opened unless the receiver is opened. This is the typical latch but numerous custom latches and prices are available.
Non-Sag Gate Kit – Install this gate kit to prevent a gate from sagging or working improperly. It can fix a gate as well if the gate is not straight. The kit comes with a truss-cable, wires, brackets, hinges, screws and a turnbuckle.
Decorative Handle – Creating your own gate? A metal handle is useful for wood, iron and ornamental gates. It’s standard for most gates and comes coated in a black powder finish.
