As mentioned by others, instructions are for the 10 inch model - but you don't have to be a genius to fugure out that you use the long pin to torque down the spring, and the short pin to secure it in place. Also, 1/8 inch pilot hole would probably work for wood or vinyl, but I needed 5/32 to screw into an aluminum post - and I still snapped one of the cheap screws. Lastly, these probably provide enough torque to close gates that are small and light - but not my 6ft vinyl privacy gates (and they have spring loaded hinges as well).

Do not buy this product. Not a good design, instructions are completely wrong and when I installed on one gate it closed the gate but very, very slow even after torqueing up the spring. Agaiin I don't recommend this at all. Can you give a zero????

I bought this gate spring at the local Home Depot and as I began to install it, I realized the instructions on the package were NOT the correct instructions for the spring in the package. It may have been an upgrade in design, but they did not upgrade the package with instructions. I AM HERE TO FIND BETTER INSTRUCTIONS ONLINE.
