Questions & Answers


Is it possible to adjust so that it does not self close?

Asked by Danny April 15, 2021

The Everbilt Black Self-Closing Gate Kit should come without tension. If there is tension, the hinge can be adjusted to not have any tension. Another option could be the 3-1/2 in. Black Heavy-Duty Tee Hinge, Part 15065, SKU 163286, basically the same hinge without the spring tension feature. This can be found in the following link: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-3-1-2-in-Black-Heavy-Duty-Tee-Hinge-15065/202034050 .

Can this be used with aluminum posts?

Asked by Nik August 21, 2020

To use this self-closing gate kit with aluminum posts you would need to use different fasteners.

What is the recommended space between the gate and the post on the hinge side and the latch side?

Asked by PDX August 17, 2020

The recommended space between the gate and post is 1/2 inch.

how does the gate open from the opposite side?

Asked by bill August 11, 2020

It doesn't. You have to reach above. They sell a locking two sided keyed latch

How do I secure the switch latch to the housing unit? The latch is very loose and I put an extra screw in the lower hole

Asked by Chris July 27, 2020

The latch should be affixed to the housing unit, a separate screw is used on the latch to secure it to the wood so it doesn’t move. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

What is the exact size of the safety screws on the self closing portion??? Package was supposed tomcome with 2 but of course it only came with 1.

Asked by JJ July 10, 2020

The Safety Screws for this gate kit are #6-32X3/4 inch flat head machine screws.

how much pound does hold

Asked by rami July 7, 2020

The working load limit per hinge is 50 pounds.

Can this be used on vinyl fencing?

Asked by MJC May 19, 2020

This self-closing gate kit can be used on vinyl fencing. We recommend using metal fasteners instead of the included wood fasteners.

Can these be mounted in a way that causes them the self open instead of self closing?

Asked by Mandy801 May 3, 2020

To get this gate kit to self open you could rotate the tension in the opposite direction.

Can i install this hinge at a 90 degree angle instead of 180 degrees?

Asked by Fish November 7, 2019

I bought this & installed a gate on posts with this kit last weekend for both our dogs & baby. I'm sure you can install it on a wall BUT ensure you attach it to something (stud or brace) that has enough support to hold any kind of weight. Depending on what ends up hanging on it (ie, gate itself, clothes, or even baby, etc) might rip the screws & hinge right off the wall. In short, i do not recommend just attaching these to the wall by itself. Hope that helps. Good luck.

The hinge system is satisfactory but the catch system is flimsy and often does not work properly. The catch needs something more then gravity to actuate locking motion, i.e., a spring of some kind.
by Frank
I finished stained my little entrance fance and start adjusting the tension on the hinges and the hinges click loudly and didn't work at all, I try to adjust the hinges again and the same things happen again. And I install 3 hinges for safety......I'm so frustrated with the cheap quality of this product

Latch instructions were not very good. If you've seen one in use, you can figure it out. The hinges are really good.
by Malk
Works good!
I picked up the Everbilt Black self closing gate kit to use on my chicken coop. I wanted something that would ensure that the door would shut in the event that I or a member of my family forgot to secure the door. These hinges are spring loaded and adjustable to different levels of force. It was just what I was looking for. Instructions are straight forward and located on the back of the package. I would recommend this product.

Was easy to install and works as designed/expected. I didn't have to make any adjustments to how springy the hinges were, so I can't speak to that. Seemed relatively simple. I did accidentally rip up the instructions, as they're printed on the back of the packaging rather then on a slip inside. that's my only complaint really.
