If I were to build a drive gate and I want each side to be 6.5 ft would that be ok if I replaced the hinges with sturdier hinges?

Answer: 
The design of this gate the hinges are pre-attached to the outer support brackets. You could probably attach additional sturdier hinges in addition though.

I am assuming you mean a dual gate and I'm assuming that your dual gate is made of wood. I am also assuming that the dimension you state in your question (6.5 ft) is the width of each gate. If what I have assumed is correct then, yes, you need to use a heavy duty gate hinge as well as the longest screws or perhaps lag screws you can attach. If your drive is made of cement and it is level, I would urge you to include a set of spring-loaded wheels to help carry the weight of your gates. At Home Depot said wheels are called "Everbilt Gate Caster with adjustable 4-inch spring bracket". Again this wheel will lessen the amount of weight your hinges are carrying.

Answer: 
These hinges are built in and cannot be replaced. I suppose a person could put their own hinges on the frame but it seems like a lot of work to me. I would not use this kit if I had a 13' wide opening with two 6.5' wide doors. Instead, I would probably look at getting a pair of the adjust a gate kits that can go up to 8' wide.

Answer: 
The hardware is ambidextrous. All one has to do to make the gate swing the other way is flip the top and bottom brackets over. Before you build the gate, decide which way the gate needs to swing and line up a bracket with where the hinge must attach. The bracket will either be on the top or the bottom. Use something to mark the bracket (crayons or chalk work well) and then repeat with the other bracket. Read More

If you make a mistake and build it to swing the wrong way (and yes I've done this) simply unscrew the brackets with the hinges and swap them. Hope this helps. Good luck! Read Less

You need to make sure you don't build it too tight. Especially if you live somewhere where the gate can get wet and swell. You need to deduct maybe 1/2" for the thickness of the hinges and the brackets themselves. Also, keep in mind you can and probably should build it somewhat smaller than that to allow for unrestricted swing. After all those factors, I would probably build the gate frame at 49" and Read More

EasyGate No-Sag Gate Bracket Kit is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from A great idea that is poorly executed and manufactured. We purchased 3 of these units for 3 different gates. Unfortunately due to time and location we had little choice but to either use them or build a wood framed unsupported gate. We had the following issues with these. 1) Warped frame pieces 2) Warped/Misaligned Hinges 3) Very Weak Hinges 4) All have rust in various places now after 1 year. 5) All hinges have now sagged and warped so much I've got to cut the hinges off and uses heavy duty door hinges instead.
Date published: 2016-10-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea BUT! Product seems like a great idea, however, be sure to check the product itself is square. Three of the four brackets were not square. Make sure to square up your framing prior to securing the screws. Quick clamps are a must. Screws are not best quality and either break or strip. I am using PT framing and don't really feel comfortable the brackets will hold up or the screws to support the framing. I can only hope the unit will do what I desire.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It works....for the most part Goes together easy, but it will eventually sag. I ended up adding a cable kit to bring it back up to level. The brackets in this kit seem to bend over time, over time being 2 weeks. The screws included seem to be pretty cheap too. Some of the heads of the screws pulled through the hinge mounting holes. I ended up using bigger decking screws

Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesn't work!! good idea and all, but it just does not stop gates from sagging. i installed this on two 4 foot by 4 foot gates in the spring of this year(2016), and both are sagging. one now has a broken weld as well. i am now going to buy cables to tension the gates as i know this will work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product My gate is sturdy and looks great. Product stated 20 min finishing times but I doubted that from the beginning; my normal fence gate took a couple hours. I like that it came with everything I needed to complete the project from a hardware perspective.

Date published: 2016-07-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A few flaws in product, but a great item if you're building a wide gate First of all I would like to apologize for this long review, but hopefully a few things I've stated below might come in handy when using the "Easy Gate" kit. I just built a dual gate for a neighbor's RV driveway. I have used the "Easy Gate" kit, on at least a dozen projects and I trust the Easy gate kit when it comes to not sagging. This time I needed the "Easy Gate" kit to come through in a big way, because not only was I making 5-foot-wide gates, but Home Depot was selling the wettest 1 x 6 cedar and treated 2 x 4s I had ever seen in my woodworking career. As always, the gate frames came together like a breeze, but there are a few things I've learned about the "Easy Gate" kit that perhaps may be of value to the first-time user. #1. Don't use the Easy Gate screws. The screws seem to be made of very soft metal, and the heads strip constantly. #2. The welds that connect the bracket to the hinge are sometimes a little sloppy/bulky and as a result 2 x 4s won't fit snugly into some welded corners. Before assembly I suggest taking note of any welds that might obstruct a tight fit. THEN, dog-ear whatever 2 x 4 is going to be against that weld. Trust me, it will save you a lot of headaches. #3. Sometimes the hinges are a little bowed, bent, or not welded at exactly 90-degrees to the bracket. Said problem has caused some frustration in the past, so I always open 3 or 4 boxes before purchasing. I make sure I have found a box that contains hinges that are as close to perfect as possible. #4. I should also mention that some pipe clamps and Quick Grips really come in handy and help keep everything tight and centered during assembly. #5 A flat surface on which to assemble your easy gate kit is imperative. Good luck with your next gate,
