More Information

A gate that doesn’t close or latch properly, because it has moved out of alignment, sags or drags along the ground, is not only frustrating, but unsafe.
Gates must be regularly inspected, physically tested and maintained by the homeowner to ensure safety.
A fence is only effective if the gate and gate hardware are functioning properly. Gate latches and hinges must be manually adjustable to accommodate gate movement and gate closing speed. Do not prop your pool gate open.
