Yes, it will close any kind of gate on hinges. However, you will probably need to supply your own mounting screws because the screws provided are for fastening to wood.

I adjust tension once the spring is installed. That controls the spring from twisting.

Will this close a very heavy, 4 foot, solid cedar, gate?

Asked by Caleb April 18, 2019

Yes, it is a very strong spring with a lot of closing torque.

What determines whether to use an 11" vs 14" spring?

Asked by steven March 2, 2019

Answers

I find the longer 14inch spring provides better closure when tension is reduced.

What would determine whether you need an 11" or a 14" spring?

Asked by MzFxit November 10, 2018

Answers

length of spring provides greater force of closure. I typically lessen the tension to reduce wear on gate surface but by using the 14in spring I still have good closing power.

I have installed the spring as instructed, but my gate pulls open instead of closing. Please advise

Asked by LP April 8, 2018

Answers

You have installed on the wrong side. Determine if you want your gate to open in or out. Facing the gate on the side that pushes away from you attach the spring on the hinge side at a near vertical position. That way when you open the gate - push away from you - the spring will return the gate to a closed position. Adjust the tension to how strong a "close" you want.

Can it work on a metal gate

Asked by Mwork March 15, 2018

Answers

Yes you sure can, but clamp it to the metal posts or drill through it using bolts with washer/nut on back side so it won't pull the screws out. Has a lot of tension for sure. I clamped mine on posts btw.. I also had this spring on my old wooden gate over a decade without one issue.

(What's this)
Received this fence spring as part of the seeds program for an honest review. Easy install following package directions. It is a very strong spring and closes my gate very easily. I like that you can adjust the tension with a simple turn of the top nut. When installing the spring has a sticker which denotes which way is up, or which to face to the top. Supplied screws hold the spring well and after opening and closing the gate dozens of time to test it out have had no problems.

This is a very sturdy gate spring and I imagine it would hold a pretty heavy gate. For my particular gate setup it would have been nice if the end pieces could be set at different angles to allow attachment on perpendicular surfaces but they are fixed. The spring comes with hardware - screws - needed for installation. It also came with a small piece of metal (shown in photo) that I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with.

The Everbilt black gate spring is built to last and comes with great installation instructions on the package. I really like that the tension is adjustable and has an adjustment on top of the spring assembly that is easy to access after it is installed. The mounting screws are provided and the triangular mounting plate on each end it makes for a secure fit.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
For a simple free swinging gate that needs to close automatically, a gate swing is a good, inexpensive option. This gate spring comes with clear, simple directions and all the hardware you need to install it. Once it's installed, it will need to be adjusted since gates vary in weight. Your needs could vary, too. Adjusting the tension affects the easy of opening and the speed of closing. You can make it work for the people using it, the purpose you have in installing it, and the other hardware on the gate. This is black finished steel. Eventually it will rust but it will probably give you many years of service.

EVERBILT, a trusted name in Hardware, I have long been a fan and customer of Everbilt. This gate spring is no exception. What I like is that the directions are in a simple language, and definitive. No ambiguity as to instalation, all the proper screws are included, along with two lengths.Nice little feature. The finish is substantila, and should affor prolonged exposure. Buy with confidence.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This spring is a great heavy-duty yet light spring with easy tension adjustment by a nut on one end. It is painted black and the paint lasts. I know; I have used them before. It is a simple solution to providing a return action on a deck gate or any type of gate. Put two , one on top and one on bottom, for added tension. There is mounting hardware attached. What else? It is easy to install; there are instructions on the back of the packaging. Install it with a closed gate. When the gate is opened, the spring action tension will bring the gate back to latch, a must with children on decks. Knowing the product, these last for years and maintain the baked paint finish. The spring keeps tension for years. There is an adjustable nut on one end. A few turns clockwise or counterclockwise increases/decreases spring tension. These are especially useful when it is windy out. It won't let a gate fly open because it is keeping tension on the gate. This is a great product, of quality, simple to install and use and set up all with a fair price point. I cannot say enough nice things about the product so I will simply say it looks great, works, is durable, and takes just a few minutes to install/adjust. It is nice knowing there is still quality and workmanship out there.

This is an 11 in. Black Gate Spring that features the ability to adjust spring tension for self-closing gates and doors. It is suitable for heavy to light duty applications. It comes with heavy duty screw bolts that are durable enough to handle high tension applications. I am using it on the gate of a dog pen we installed for new puppies. I recommend this product.

Good quality gate spring. I installed it on my gate but the spring is too strong for my gate. I have a three door wide by six feet tall privacy fence gate. After installing the spring without even tightening the tension adjustment the gate slams too hard. I built my gate and it’s pretty heavy but this spring has way too much tension for my purpose.

Will not work as packaged.
The spring locking bar is to wide to fit under the top screws. I had to grind it down to fit. I noticed there was more room at the bottom bracket but not at the top.

Garbage. It is nearly impossible to adjust with a wrench after installed because the screws get in the way. The screws are soft steel and they strip. The locking bar cannot be inserted properly due to a conflict with the screws. The spring binds with the gate and it will not allow the gate to open fully. Setting the tension with a wrench strips the paint. This is worse than useless because it wasted my time. Returning it.
