Using 2 of these gate casters, will support a load of 250 pounds total. So long as your gate does not exceed that weight limit, these casters will be a great solution!

Not sure how the wheel fits next to the hinge post when you swing it out. It might work if you give a little wiggle room for the wheel.

It would be recommended to place this gate caster on the back side of the gate to swing inward. The entire depth of the plate is is 4-1/8 inches (or 3-1/2 inches from the edge of the plate to the center of the spring.) Apologies that we do not have a picture or diagram of the caster attached to a metal gate, we are in the process of gathering lifestyle images for all of our products.

Im sure some grease on/in them would be good but in over a year I have not and see no way to do it.

What size lag bolts are required?

Answers

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.

So much better...
I have a long gate that was dragging on the ground. I bought this wheel to keep it lifted a little and it made a huge difference. Now opening the gate is so much easier. The wheel rolls smooth and surprisingly holds a good amount of weight. I had to fill in the whole to the gate post so this could roll smoothly.

Put these on a chain linked fence and they're working great. So far have had dry conditions and none stop snow for 2 weeks. I secured it to the post using metal hose clamps. Used 3 clamps per wheel.
