Questions & Answers

Do I need to add anything between the bracket and the gate before mounting this caster? If so, what is the thickness?

Asked by: shane
Depends on the gate. My gate is a 14' welded wire mesh. Since I couldn't mount directly to the welded wires, I used small bolts with washers to affix the caster to a 1 X 4. The caster is mounted on one side of the mesh, the 1 X 4 on the other. Kind of clunky to look at, but it's been working perfectly since last September (2017).

What size lag bolts are required?

Asked by: Erica
I don't know about Required per se, but it makes sense to me to use the largest that will fit your constraints. If you mean what is the smallest you can safely get away with, I suppose that answer would depend heavily on gate's weight, the level of use, the material being attached to, and the rolling surface.

What is the distance between mounting holes, and what diameter?

What is the distance between mounting holes, and what diameter?
Asked by: HK
About 2 1/4” center to center and I’d guess 3/8”. I have 1/4” lag bolts holding mine in place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from worked well on concrete not so good on dirt I bought this item to help take the pressure off the length of the gate. (single hung 8 ft x8 ft gate) It worked great on the concrete but did not preform well when the gate reached the ground portion of the swing. would not recomend for ground operation. wheel to small for smooth travel and digs on swivel at end of travel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not buy this again or recommend to anyone. This may have worked better had it not been a swivel caster. There is no need for it to swivel since this attaches to a gate. The caster would turn sideways and get caught on the ground and the caster had to be manually straightened in line or you couldn't move the gate. I bought three of these for my gates and installed one of them. After seeing how it did not work, I then returned the other two and then I trashed the one I had installed. Do not buy this unless your gate caster is only on concrete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, well made, works great. I bought two to serve as rollers for an 8' vinyl fence piece I installed as a driveway gate. I needed two because the panel is all vinyl and not very sturdy. I installed them in opposite directions at the end (latch side) of the gate and the whole gate works excellently. This wheel is really sturdy. You could use it for the tail landing gear on an airplane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very ingenious... They work perfectly on the unlevel ground that the gate needs to operate on.
