How do I hang the gates for a Vinyl fence?

All vinyl gates are hung off of vinyl gate posts that have a steel insert inside.  The insert is an angle that covers two sides of the post.  This is necessary for both structural reasons and because vinyl hinges attach to the post on two sides.  

  1. When setting your hinge post, make sure that the one leg of the insert faces the opening and the other leg of the insert faces the side where the gate will swing out.  
  2. Screw your hinges to the gate post approximately 6” from the bottom and 6” from the top. Be careful not to strip-out the material. 
  3. Screw your hinges to the gate frame. 
  4. Adjust your hinges by moving the nuts on the post side of the hinge.  This will allow you to adjust your gap spacing. 
  5. Attach your latch.
