Universal Gate Kit (12-Pieces) is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from They could do a lot better I hesitantly recommend this because it's the only solution for the Home Depot exclusive Veranda fence. I used the kit to install a 48" wide gate. First, why is this black when everything else on my vinyl fence is white? If it can't be molded in color, paint it. Second, reversing the hinges for a right in-swing causes the spring to expand and not contract. Don't even bother trying to do that as you will have years of frustration in front of you. Third, the adjustment is set all the way in from the factory leaving a minimum of a 1/4" gap between the seated hinge and the fence post. My suggestion is to adjust it out a little before you fit your panel to the opening. The instructions DO NOT tell you this. Fourth, it's a cheap design and there is lots of play in the mechanism. I was able to tighten things up with foil shims but if it was made right, this wouldn't have been an all morning project. Also be sure to check the set screws (why aren't these hex?) and all other screws on the hinge assembly to make sure they are tight. Mine weren't. Fifth, If your post was set without a 4x4 inside of it, just drop in a 2x4, install the hinges into it and then pour concrete down the inside of the vinyl post. Sixth, the latch mechanism is cheap, really cheap. So cheap that it doesn't even have a padlock hole. If your dog is smart enough to bump the latch (and most are) you'll be looking for Fido the day after you install the gate. You might consider just picking up a WHITE latch and catch in the hardware isle on the same visit. Again, this kit is really not that great but your options are limited. Good luck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Challenging install but worth the effort First, before I installed this gate hardware I read the reviews, read the instructions, and watched the video. I would recommend that to everyone. There are some good tips and valuable observations. Second, this install is about good planning and thinking along the way. This is not a quick get the job done. But by not having to have two other fence posts this is a much cleaner look, I saved more than half the cost of gate hardware kit by not buying two more posts. Things to know, my gate is 46 inches wide. I would not use this hardware much beyond that. The problem is that the hinges work easy but the tradeoff is there is some slop in them so the longer the span of the gate the more the gate will want to drop down on the far side (opposite hinges). For me the drop was about a half inch. The max adjustment is about an inch using both hinge adjustment. Beyond that the gate install would look off too much. Hope this helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Hinge My husband installed a set of these hinges on our new vinyl picket fence. We have the fence separating my vegetable garden from the rest of our yard. He used this hinge kit to make a gate using a full section of the picket fence which springs closed by itself. It works great, makes my garden look cute and he said he had an easy time putting it together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and simple I used the kit to install an 8' piece of vinyl fence as a driveway gate. The hinges are very sturdy but i also added two support wheels. The kit included end caps for the vinyl fence and screws and glue. Job was very easy to complete and happy with result.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not a bad product This is great for small area gates that open in- looks nice - unfortunately, my gate had to open out - therefore my hinges had to be put on backsward- tried everything. While it is easy, I could not see putting this product on very large gates.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fundementally Flawed Approach I tried this approach against my better judgment. Using special hinges to make a 68" fence panel into a gate seemed likely to present problems. The Veranda 68" fence panels are fairly flimsy to begin with, and I anticipated sag. The panel does sag, but also the hinges themselves sag. The hinges do have a 3/4" adjustment, so you can adjust the lower hinge outward to adjust for the sag, but this leaves an uneven opening between the post and the gate. If you're still interested in this solution, consider these points: (1) the problems inherent in this approach are mitigated by cutting the panel down to 42 to 48 inches; (2) purchase a second latch to supplement the one supplied, and install them carefully so that the gate panel is supported by them when shut; (3) run a cable, tightened with a turnbuckle, from near the top of the gate post to the lower far corner of the gate panel to achieve a level gate; (4) the hinges are glued to the fence panel -- careful, this is very runny glue -- and you may want to supplement the glue with plastic rawlplugs. Or maybe just use a real gate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your money. This product has a lot of slack in it and the gate sags a lot. The adjustment is not enough to keep the gate from sagging. Does not work well at all. Is complete junk.
