Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheNichols Great product, easy install, amazing solution
This gate was super easy to install. We already had the posts installed because we were replacing a smaller gate with a larger one so that we could get a riding lawn mower into our back yard. Because the posts were already there it cut down a lot of time. Overall we spent maybe a half an hour putting the gate together and up, and part of that is because we were taking the time to teach my 11 year old son how to use different tools and letting him help. This gate went together easily and looks great. It was a lot cheaper to replace the gate with this adjustable one than to change out part of the fence with a larger gate because none of the sections were the right size so this being adjustable was perfect. I wish I would have known these were a thing when I put in my original gates because the spacing is not typical where my gate went so we had to improvise. I will likely be buying a second and replacing my other gate as well.

At less than a $100. delivered, the gate is worth the price. It has to be put together but that is relativity easy. It is not the same quality as a $100 + gate but that is too be expected. It is actually painted silver and not galvanized, but that worked fine for me because I I spray painted it black anyway.

I needed a person gate next to a large car gate. This took care of the measurements and was fairly easy to put up. I am very happy with it.

You may see this item assembled at the store - buy it there if it is the right size and you can transport it to your project. If you order it delivered, you will receive a box of disassembled parts that require tools, space, and a mastery of handling heavy rolled chain-link. Controlling and cutting the chain-link requires some skill. The advantage is the ability to create the exact size for the opening. The finished product is sturdy and reliable either as a fixed patch or as a swinging gate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bruce Quick to assemble and high quality materials.
The gate tool about 1/2 hour to assemble. Instructions were easy tio follow. I was pleased with the quality and price of Yardgard. I purchase this again and recommend to a friend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinTampa Overall decent, but...
We bought two of these to replace two old/rusted drive-through gates. The finished product looks decent, but note the following:
1) One gate looks like galvanized steel, which I was expecting. The other gate looks like it was painted with a sparkly metallic silver color on some of the parts. You can't tell unless you look closely, but it had me questioning whether I had been sent incorrect parts.
2) These gates (the 5 ft high by 6 ft wide model) don't come with a scroll on top, even though it is depicted in the picture. I don't care much about the scrolls, but I replaced another smaller gate (in a different part of my yard) with a Yardgard model that did have the scroll, and I was hoping they'd match.
3) I found the instructions to be a little misleading. First, if you are planning to use the gate as-is (without trimming to a shorter size), the instructions still tell you to trim at the largest size possible (this is confusing, the instructions should just tell you to use the as-is size if you have a 72" opening, and to trim if you have smaller than a 72" opening). Second, the instructions tell you trim if the OPENING size is X inches wide, not if the GATE size is X inches wide. I don't know if most homeowners will catch this, but I missed it (and I mistakenly made cuts and had to buy a third wide gate after realizing my error). If you are trying to replace an old gate that you know is X inches wide (these are replacement gates after all), it might just be better if the conversion table reflected GATE width not OPENING width.
4) I needed 2 gates to fit a 12-foot-wide opening. The gates needed to be 69 inches long each, but the max width of each gate is 68 inches (if you follow the instructions). I ended-up widening each gate by one inch (a half-inch on each side), which worked out fine. I don't know how common a 69-inch gate is in a double-gate situation, but that was my scenario so I had to improvise a little.
