Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ben62 Works good!
I picked up the Everbilt Black self closing gate kit to use on my chicken coop. I wanted something that would ensure that the door would shut in the event that I or a member of my family forgot to secure the door. These hinges are spring loaded and adjustable to different levels of force. It was just what I was looking for. Instructions are straight forward and located on the back of the package. I would recommend this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nick 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.

Spring tension adjustment at MAX is barely enough to keep a 3' wide x 6' tall gate closed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michael65 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by LTUSNRET PERFECT FOR ADDITIONAL SECURITY
The added security that these hinges provide is wonderful. I used to always forget to shut the gate behind me or my hands would be full and I would find myself unable to shut the gate, NO more these hinges are the perfect answer. I also liked how sturdy the hinges are very well made, able to support a very heavy gate. I will be honest I am not a fan of the latch that was included, so I use a different one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gerg 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.

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

Easy to replace the old hinges on our 36" wooden gate leading to the back yard. Simply remove 1 hinge at a time starting with the bottom hinge. All hardware is provided, the screws were large enough to replace the old ones on the old hinge. The latch works very well instead of the old latch on the existing gate. Nice feature that allows the gate to close after exiting the gate opening.
