Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel Unbeatable gate kit!
This is my third gate kit (three different sizes). I have now used all three size kits, two walkway gates 48". The large heavy duty kit works perfectly on my larger double driveway gates 84". You can use the kit to make a gate quickly or to repair a gate that lacks support. The design help you to make it square and strong. Included is the hinge and screws. I have not found a better setup on the market.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LTUSNRET THE KEY WORD HERE IS EASY GATE!!!!!
This has got to be the best thing going in gate building aside from pre cut fence planks. All you have to do is follow the 4 easy steps and your done. The directions are so easy to understand. Heck they have a video on the Home Depot web site that shows you how to do it. The kit comes with everything you need all screws and even the hinges. If you need to build a gate do your self a favor and buy the Homax EasyGate No Sag Gate Kit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fillmore44 Works for me!
I have used this EasyGate product before on a few gates we have around the property. Most recently I replaced a gate that was damaged in a storm. The bracket kit on the new item I recently got was a bit thinner metal than my older hinge kits but seems to have enough strength to do the job. The surface of the material is rust resistant and from my previous experiences with the EasyGate kits I have not found
any rust on them over the years. The kit works best on narrower gates of 42" or less. The kit is also a lot less expensive than many other gate kits on the market and are very easy to use.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UCCRACING Cheap- Doesn't hold up, no adjustments at all
It functions "OK" but not great. My gate sagged after a year, and there is no way to adjust anything. We had to re mount stuff to keep it working. I thought it was something missing, and when we took it down to re adjust things, we quickly found that we had zero options.
Just not the greatest product out there.

After I read the instructions several times it became apparent that the hinges on the brackets were welded inside out. When attaching the hinge bracket to fence post the hinge pin housing was on the inside of the hinge causing the hinge plates to not lay flat. Being 66 years old I've learned a lot of trivial stuff over the years and instead of returning the product to HD I chiseled a notch in the edge of the fence post at the hinge locations. That solved the problem although the hinge is still incorrectly built. Hey HD you might take a look at your inventory, after all this product was made in China. I also used pressure treated timber and had no trouble with fit.

I was disappointed to find that the brackets in the set I received were not square. It is hard to make a gate that is squared when the frame is not. Previous versions of this have been well made. I am disappointed that this is now their standard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl95602 Great product
I have put together wooden gates before, but never this easy. Cutting the cross brace was the hardest part of putting the gate together and the part that usually failed after a few years.
Now the easy way. Cut your top and bottom boards to the length you need. Cut your side boards to the length you need. Screw the braces to the top and bottom boards. Screw the braces to the side boards. This makes a box that keeps the gate from sagging. Attach hinges to fence post. Put your fencing boards on the gate frame just like they were fence slats.
No latch hardware enclosed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Justin Great Idea, Horrible Execution
I tried to put this together using pressure treated lumber from HD. If you've ever checked PT lumber dimensions, the size is slightly larger than the standard 1.5" x 3.5". Because of the difference, I had to sand or plane down my lumber to fit, which, right away took more than the advertised video. Second, every screw had to be pre-drilled using a 1/8" drill bit, so needless to say, the screws used to assemble this are quite small and it does not feel sturdy at all.
Finally, when I put this all together, the gate was "warped" from what I could tell was bent metal frames.
Instead of using this product, I used some Kreg screws and simple hinges and was done in less than 10 minutes.
Skip this product, it's not worth your time.
