Customer Questions & Answers

How do I decrease tension?

Asked by: Kamm
Remove the screw cover on the hing, in the package was an hex screw, use it to turn the adjusting screw in the hinge- Counter clockwise to decrease the tension...clockwise to increase the tension. You should not have to make more than 6 turns to set the tension. Then replace the screw cover...

Can I order the product from germany?

Is it possible to send the self-closing gate kit to germany? How long would it take? Do I have to expect customs payments?
Asked by: ewosch27
I don't see why not, of course the S&H will be more expensive if coming from the States.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! My dog is a total opportunist gate crasher. Sometimes our gate just wasn't closing, or popping open or we just forget to make sure it's closed. I was hoping this product would eliminate user error and keep that gate closed so my dog doesn't escape any more and get himself hurt or killed. I was really pleased with how well it works. You can adjust the tension so it doesn't forcibly slam shut, I have a cat who I don't want getting hit with a heavy gate. It was easy to install. I removed my old hinges and replaced them with the new ones one at a time. Then I attached the latch which was maybe the most time consuming part. The latch has an act adjustment which makes it wiggly and you have to hold it in place while screwing it to the gate or the latch will fall out. It's hard to explain. I also like that you can attach a string or wire to the latch to pull it open from the other side. Once I had it installed adjusting the tension didn't take long. I set mine to close a little slow so it doesn't slam to hard. I would still need to be keeping an eye on my dog if the gate was closing from wide open. The point is that the gate will shut and not be left open any more. I'm going to get another for my back gate to the pasture and one for my chicken coop. I love the black finish, it looks so much nicer that the over sized hinges and rust gate latch the previous owner has put on. Looks very high end.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spring loses tension and doesnt self-close After a few weeks, every time the gate slams shut, the spring tensioner slips to neutral position and the gate doesn't self close. Waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service, Replacement Works Great I replaced a different everbilt self-closing gate kit with this one. The previous one had an external spring setting mechanism where you had to manually insert a pin to hold the tension after cranking. The enclosed design on this model looks much better, but the first kit I purchased and installed simply did not work for holding tension. The instructions say not to turn the tension adjustment past 6 clicks, but on my first kit I found 5 to be sufficient to close and latch my gate. However the tension would pop and release after every few closings, so I tried setting them at 3-4 clicks instead, hoping they would hold better, but no such luck. After a few attempts at resetting each hinge, the tension adjustment stopped clicking to hold the setting, and would immediately release the tension after turning the adjustment mechanism. I was very surprised by the problems I had with this kit, as my previous Everbilt kit outlasted the wood it was mounted on, and it was a shame because the hardware really does look great. UPDATE: The manufacturer reached out to me after seeing the review I posted, and immediately offered to send a replacement kit. I was skeptical that a replacement would perform much differently, but it definitely has! I've been using the replacement for months now, and have had ZERO issues with the springs holding their tension. I would absolutely recommend this kit as a great value and an excellent performer based on this replacement product. Obviously the kit I purchased initially had some defective components, but this is not a design defect, and I would highly encourage anyone who has issues with their kit to exchange it right away to get one that works better. Production issues aside, this kit is really looks fantastic and functions great (if you get one that works!) and I would absolutely buy this kit again if I needed another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Self closing mechanism does not work When opening the hinges from the packet there was a lot of clicking when getting them 'flat'. Installed them and one hinge when adjusting the spring tension would not even click into place. The other hinge after 2 ratchet clicks with the allen key seemed OK but after opening the gate twice the spring tension just 'unclicked' and no spring tension. These hinges definitely have a manufacturing / quality issue Don't know what to do now as I have them installed on the new gate and don't want to diassemble. Taking them back is probably not an option as I doubt that even the other ones on the shelf are even better. Completely disappointed with this product - what is the point of a self closing hinge that is a total failure? If I could give 0 stars I would as this made a successful project a failure!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Good Spring tension adjustment at MAX is barely enough to keep a 3' wide x 6' tall gate closed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Solid Product These are good solid hinges and hardware. They have an elegant upscale appearance. I've used this brand before and these hinges are the same excellent quality I've come to expect from this manufacturer. They are easy to install as well. I like the latch system on this one. It is an easy close easy open system. The hole on the bottom of the latch allows installation of a padlock for securing the gate or door. I would buy them again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more worry about the dog or kid getting out I built a new gate to the backyard and got tired of worrying about the gate getting left open and the dog or my two year old wandering out. Now the gate swings closed everytime. The system came with everything needed to install the spring loaded hinges and the latch. Installation was simple and straight forward and everything has held up well after several months of use.
