Frequently Asked Questions

I have questions for my particular application, do you have a “ask the expert line”?

What is the difference between the 2-rail and the 3-rail Adjust-A-Gate kits?

The difference between the 2-rail and 3-rail kits is the height of the steel verticals. The 2 rail kits are 47” high typically used for 5’ & 6’ High gates and the 3 rail kits are 60” high typically used for 6’ and taller gates. The 3 rail kits offer additional 2x4 rail brackets for a 3-rail application.

With a single gate, you can have an opening of up to 8’. For a double drive, using 2 Adjust-A-Gate kits, you can have an opening of up to 16’

I have round steel posts. Can I use the Adjust-A-Gate kit with my posts?

Yes! However, you will need additional hardware. The Adjust-A-Gate kit comes with standard wood post corner hinges. You will need standard chain link style male post hinges to attach the Adjust-A-Gate to your round steel posts.

Can I use the Adjust-A-Gate on a deck application?

Yes, the Adjust-A-gate kits are perfect for deck application where stairs are included, perfect for keeping pets in or off the deck and safety for children.

Can the Adjust-A-Gate open in or out depending on my application?

Yes, although Adjust-A-Gate is deigned to open in, the post hinges can be placed on the opposite side of the posts for an outward swing.

Can this gate be attached to masonry?

The gate includes hardware for wood or composite posts. Masonry hinges (not included) with a 5/8” pin will work with our gate frame hinges

What are the adjustable widths of the Adjust-A-Gate?

Our 36 series (AG36-36, AG36 & AG36-3) will fit an opening of 36”-60”. Our 60 series (AG60-36, AG60 & AG60-3) will fit openings of 60”96”

Does the gate adjust vertically?

No, Adjust-A-Gate kits adjust horizontally only. The kits come in 4 heights, 34” 45” 47” & 60”

How do I cover the gaps on each side of the gates?

We recommend overlapping the fence board on the hinge side and attaching the fence boards to the end of the vertical gate frame on the latch side. We include self-tapping screws to attach the end fence boards to the steel frame.

If I build a double gate, does it allow the full width of both gates? Example: AG36 at max extension is 60” or 5’ post to post but if I build a double gate, can I put the posts at 10’ or 120” apart?

When you build a double gate, you actually lose 1” so 9’9” or 119” would be the max post to post distance with this gate size, or you simply lose 1” with any double gate using our gate frame kits.
