Where to Install

Deck Gates:. Deck gates must hinge to a 4x4 post. You must be about to mount the base of a strap hinge to the post. You can NOT use butt hinges (two plates that touch when the gate is closed). Strap hinges prevent gate sag, and distribute the load across the handrail.


Doorframes. Wood door frames are great, as long as there is no door present. The frame must have 1 1/2" of flat space available where the gate will hang.

Wall Mount. You can also attach wood planks (we provide) to your drywall or paneling, and hinge to the plank (and latch to the one on the other side). But, there MUST be a stud behind the drywall, to which the wall plank(s) are anchored.

Posts. You can install gates between posts (to which you can hinge). So, there must be flat areas on the posts for hinges, and those hinges have to line up vertically.

Requirements. Gates must be mounted at a right angle to the wall or doorframe or post. They can not hang 'on a diagonal'. You can NOT hinge directly to drywall. Gates are too heavy for compression mount. You can not 'turn a corner' with a two panel gates. Two panel gates must hang in a straight line.

Learn More about LatchesOur latches are intended to defeat little hands but are not rated as child proof. They use a thumb clasp for locking. You can augment with a doorstop, to prevent a gate opening over stairs. You can also add a surface bolt or hasp for extra safety. View our latch video.
