How do you figure out how much to preload the sping when installing it?

Asked by Janet July 22, 2020

Answers

Hi Janet that's a good question-First identify the highest and lowest points of your surface along the travel path, then mount the gate caster at a height that ensures some spring compression at the lowest surface point, and also not bottoming-out at the highest surface point.

How much play is in the spring? I have a 3 inch slope on my driveway. Will it compress 3 inches?

Asked by NickB May 14, 2020

Answers

more like 2 - 2.5 inches. Also you want to give extra play on top of it, so you might have to add some extra length to your gate to compensate the slope. One of my install compressed to about 2.5 inches and it put way too much weight on the wheel, giving it a rough roll and hard turn. Took it out and plan to reinstall it soon with more play.

It does the job. I used it for a long gate. FYI - It doesn't come with any bolts, lock nuts or washers which you will need to attach this to whatever you are attaching it to.

Great wheel after modification!
As others have mentioned, this wheel is not meant to be a structural component, at least not for larger/heavier gates. I used this product to fix my sagging wooden privacy fence gate by removing the cotter pin and spring and using large washers as shims to get the wheel and mounting bracket to my desired height. Luckily, the wheel rides on my driveway which is fairly level; otherwise, this would not have worked. I will likely be purchasing one more to fix another gate!
