Questions & Answers

Will this work on a gate that swings BOTH directions?

Specifically, a gate that pushes OR pulls open from either side...
Asked by: IPFreely
This spring is only adjustable to swing inward or outward. We do not recommend attempting to use it for both directions.

After installing, how do I set and LOCK the spring to the right tension?

The bottom bolt is locked in by the inability of the bolt to turn against the bracket, but the one marked "Top" has room to move, which I assume is proper because you can set the right tension. But how to lock it in? There does not seem to be another piece to accomplish the locking.
Asked by: Shaymana
I can only tell you how I made the thing work. Understand that you aren't trying to screw the large bolt into the spring. Instead, you are "winding up" the spring. You turn the nut on top to the desired tension, then drop a 16 penney nail (or something about 1/8 inch thick) in between the large nut and the mounting bracket. This keeps the nut (and spring) from unwinding to the original position. I cut the nail to about an inch long to keep it from poking out on both ends. Good luck.

After installation, I tried to tighten the top nut, but it keeps "springing" back and won't hold it's place. How do I keep it from springing back as I tighten it? There isn't a lot of room under the screws, so I know I'm not even getting it a quarter turn before it springs back.
Asked by: Springtoit
There is a small black, flat piece of metal you slide in between the top nut and the mounting bracket after you turn the nut from one to three times (depending on conditions). In a previous answer to this same question from someone else, the solution was a nail. I happened to have had to use a nail as it had a smaller profile, which I needed due to mounting into a metal frame requiring a larger screw head. The point is to wedge something rigid in between the tensioned nut and the mounting bracket. Do not tighten more than is required to alleviate undue stress on spring and mounting screws.

It is nearly impossible to adjust with a wrench after installed because the screws get in the way. The screws are soft steel and they strip. The locking bar cannot be inserted properly due to a conflict with the screws. The spring binds with the gate and it will not allow the gate to open fully. Setting the tension with a wrench strips the paint. This is worse than useless because it wasted my time. Returning it.

Two screws on both ends and you have to adjust the spring. I only had to to adjust mine only a very little. Not even a half turn. If you over tighten it will break it or pull the screws out. You don't want it to slam hard or you will have issue later with the hinges and the locking device.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from new version is junk The screws are soft, 3 of 4 of them broke while hand screwing them, after drilling the proper pilot hole as instructed, and the self-closing action doesn't work properly since the auto locking method doesn't work like it used to with the prior model where there was a bolt to hold it. Not happy, returning it tonight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Design Wow! Save your money...Installed the first one, which requires drilling holes in gate and it broke after less than 1 rotation on the tensioner. Tried a second one, had to add more holes because the second unit was about 1/2" longer than the first...same result. Returned the broken parts.
Date published: 2016-05-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well. The gate spring mounted easy and looks good. Tension was easy to adjust. I've read reviews and breaking is a problem for some and that can be shown to be from over tightening. A half of a turn is all it needs I only did 120 degrees and it works great.
