KIT: 3 Heavy Duty Ball-Bearing Hinges + Gate Closer Spring
Stainless Steel and Powder-Coated Black
4-1/2" x 4-1/2" Square Corners (Set of 3)
This kit will allow you to hang the gate with solid, 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" stainless steel hinges (black finish) and then install the spring to help the gate close.
Ball-bearing hinges are excellent for heavier doors and gates. The ball bearings allow an easier swing and will help prevent the sag that using an inadequate hinge sometimes causes.
This 4-1/2" stainless steel ball-bearing hinge has a stainless steel pin. Fasteners are included. #12 x 1-1/4" size. The finish is Satin Black. (This hinge is provided with 1-1/4" long screws. You may want to substitute your own longer screws to grab deeper into the wood. The spec to ask for at the hardware store is #12 made of 18-8 stainless x whatever length you need.)
A set of three holds a weight of 150lbs. Mounting screws included. Made of Stainless Grade 302/304. These are commercial-grade hinges.
- 3 - 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" stainless steel ball-bearing (black finish)
- stainless steel spring (black finish)
- tensioning tool for the spring (can also use your own 1/4" socket wrench)
About the spring:
Made of stainless steel and coated in a black finish, this gate spring will push the gate back closed. You install one bracket to the gate and one to the post (see images below). The spring is always installed on the side of the gate that it swings toward (the side of the gate with the hinges showing) so that it can push the gate closed. Note in the photo below how the spring is installed upper-right to lower-left. The spring always needs to be oriented with the tensioning knob on top-right.
- 13-1/2" overall length
- Spring measures 10-1/2" long x 1-1/8" diameter
This hinge can be installed directly to the surface edge of the gate and edge of the post, or can be mortised for a more finished look. For surface-mounted installations, allow a 5/16" gap between edge of gate and post. For mortise installations, allow a 1/16" to 1/8" gap between edge of gate and post.
