Self-Closing Spring Hinges
4" x 4" with 1/4" Radius Corners (sold as each)
These UL Listed Spring Hinges are a great solution for pool gates, child barrier gates or any door/gate that you'd like to self-close. They have an adjustable spring so you can create the amount of tension you need.
Fasteners are included. #12 x 1-1/4" size
For small to medium-sized gates: one spring hinge is probably enough--you can install it as the middle of the three hinges. Use two ball bearing hinges for the upper and lower hinges on your gate.
For larger or heavier gates, or if your local regulatory agency requires them: use all spring hinges to hang the gate.
Maximum Weight Capacity:
- One spring hinge and two butt hinges: 60 lbs.
- Two spring hinges and one butt hinge: 85 lbs.
- Three spring hinges: 110 lbs.
Sold as Each.
These hinges are available in the following finishes:
- Polished Brass
- French Antique
- Oil-Rubbed Bronze (Note: Oil-Rubbed Bronze is a very dark bronze, almost black. It coordinates perfectly with any of our dark bronze gate hardware. If you'll be purchasing ball bearing hinges to use with your spring hinge, the Solid Brass Ball Bearing Hinge in Oil-Rubbed Bronze is an exact finish match.)
- Satin Nickel (Note: Satin Nickel is the closest finish to stainless steel. If you have a stainless steel latch you need to coordinate with, this is the right finish. We offer Heavy Duty Ball Bearing Stainless Steel Hinges, as well, if you need other hinges with your spring hinge.)
- Polished Chrome
- Satin Chrome
- Flat Black
- Medium Bronze (Note: Medium Bronze is a fairly dark bronze color (not as dark as oil-rubbed bronze).
These Emtek plated steel door hinges are 0.110 " thick. Prices listed are per hinge.
360 Yardware strives to offer a full selection of heavy duty wood gate hinges and strap hinges for gates. We carry garden gate hinges that work for smaller gates, ball bearing gate hinges for medium sized gates, and for heavy driveway gates we have stout heavy duty driveway gate hinges in dark bronze that can support 250 pounds per pair. Those customers searching for pool gate hardware can use our spring loaded hinges for gates, also known as self-closing hinge. Outdoor gate hinges come in different materials so you’re sure to find what you need: iron gate hinges, bronze hinges, and stainless steel hinges for coastal locations. A wide variety of finishes are available, including black gate hinges, oil-rubbed bronze, brushed stainless steel, and satin nickel.
Gate hinges, even heavy duty gate hinges, can add architectural complement to your gate. Strap hinges and our “H” hinges are visible when the gate is closed, so the hinge adds to the look. Butt hinges, on the other hand, are not visible on the face of the gate.
To help you make your gate hinge decisions, we’ve compiled a blog entry that discusses each aspect of heavy duty gate hinges, so that you can choose the right hinge for your job.

Add A Dummy Handle for Double Gates?If you have a double gate, it’s an option to add a dummy handle to the outside of the inactive gate. The dummy handle gives a ‘finished’ and symmetrical look to the gates and provides a handle to pull and push the inactive gate with. For gates that will be used frequently by people who aren’t familiar with the gate: dummy handles can also cause confusion because a visitor doesn’t know which handle is operable.
Add A Gate Stop?A gate stop is needed on all gates. The stops that we have are attached to the gate and catch on the post when the gate is pushed closed. The stop maintains the proper alignment so that the latch can latch, but won’t be damaged if the gate is slammed.
Add Jar of Touch-Up PaintEach cranked band strap hinge comes with a carriage bolt, which is installed through the hinge and through the door/gate. These bolts have a silver finish. At installation, you can paint the carriage bolt’s head black with optional touch-up paint.
Add Cane Bolt?A cane bolt is needed when you have a double gate set. The cane bolt holds the inactive gate down to the ground. It can also be used to hold a gate open. Sometimes two cane bolts are used on double gates (one on each gate) so the gates can be held open (in the case of a driveway gate, for example).
Add Faux Butt Hinge?These decorative strap hinges have an optional piece, the Faux Butt Hinge. When you install it, it makes for a larger appearing hinge. All parts are still decorative.
BacksetThe backset is the distance from the edge of the door or gate to the centerpoint of the through-hole of the hardware. Dummy handles do not require a backset.
Deadbolts can be either “single cylinder” or “double cylinder”. Single means there is a key hole on the outside and a thumbturn on the inside. Double means there is a key hole on both sides of the deadbolt.
Do you need concealed fasteners?On Emtek’s door hardware you have the option for concealed fasteners. Rather than seeing the screws on the interior side of the hardware, the concealed fasteners allow you to have finished appearance on both sides.
Door thicknessRefer to the range of acceptable thicknesses on the product description, and then choose your door’s thickness. Try to choose a thickness within 1/8” of your actual thickness.
When you need a dummy handle, you’ll need to choose which side to order. There are two options: Left and Right. Refer to the image below to determine your dummy handle.
Extension Kit for Gates up to 3.5"These latches fit gates up to 2-1/2” with the standard tongue. With the addition of an extended tongue piece, you can fit a gate or door up to 3-1/2” thick.
Gate ThicknessRefer to the range of acceptable thicknesses on the product description, and then choose your gate’s thickness. Try to choose a thickness within 1/8” of your actual thickness.
HingeA number of hinge options are available. Butt hinges work on gates that are ~6 feet high and 42” wide. A thicker gate can use a bigger butt hinge than a thinner gate. If the gate or door is wider than 48”, you should choose a strap hinge.
Interior Door FunctionWhen you need a dummy handle, you’ll need to choose which side to order. There are two options: Left and Right. Refer to the image below to determine your dummy handle.
- Passage Function: Passage or Hall and Closet Lever Handles are used on doors that do not require a locking mechanism. Halls, closets, pantry or laundry doors will generally use a passage leverset. Passage levers do not have a locking mechanism.
- Privacy Function: Privacy Hardware are most often used on Bedrooms, Baths or Office doors where a lock for privacy while occupied is desired, but a keyed lock is not really necessary. Emtek privacy levers have a push button on the rosette or backplate as shown to the left to activate the lock. On the outside, there is a pin hole for emergency unlocking. Some levers will have a pin hole inside a circular piece, some just have a small pinhole.
- Dummy Function: Emtek Double Dummy Door Knobs are sold in pairs. Dummy knobs do not have a latch or mechanism of any kind. These door knobs are surface mounted to a door that has not been bored (large hole cut out). Dummy knobs are generally used on double doors that us a ball catch at the top to keep them closed so a latch is not required. They are also commonly found on the inactive side of a french door - a single dummy mounted on either side of the inactive door.
Key All Deadbolts Alike?If you’re ordering two or more deadbolts, you have the option to use the same key for both, so that you don’t have to use separate keys. If you’re ordering one deadbolt choose “Single Lock or Not Keyed Alike.”
Mortise Lock Type
Rosette StyleThe rosette is the plate portion of your hardware. Choose the rosette that works best for the style you desire.
Screw Shape & LengthHex head screws are made of stainless steel and finished dark to coordinate with the hardware. Square head screws are made of a rust-resistant material (not stainless) and finished dark to coordinate with the hardware. If you’re in a coastal area, choosing the hex head fasteners is the best choice.
Standing in Front of the Gate, Which Way Does It Swing?This gate latch is handed one direction or the other. For single gates, you can answer the handing questions from either side of the gate as long you answer both questions standing in the same position. For double gates: answer the handing question for the active gate (the one that will have the latch installed).
Standing in the same position, what side is the gate hinged on?This gate latch is handed one direction or the other.

For double gates: answer the handing question for the active gate (the one that will have the latch installed).
