Gate Installation Steps:

Step 1:

Single Folding Gates - Step 1Before Installing decide on gate placement. “L” brackets that form top hinge allows gate placement in the recess of door frame.

Installation can also be made outside or inside of wall next to door or opening frame.

Extension brackets (order separately) clear overhead door tracks, bollards or obstructions.
6” brackets provide 4-3/4” clearance,
9” brackets provide 7-1/4” clearance.

Step 2:

Pair-Gate-Step2Have a helper extend the gate and stand it upright where it will be mounted.
CAUTION: Check to confirm gate will swing away from opening when not in use. This will provide a clear opening for normal traffic.

  • Drill 3/4″ diameter x 3″ deep hole, 1-1/4″ from wall into the floor for gate pin to set into.
  • For 6″ extension bracket drill 6″ O.C. from wall.
  • For 9″ extension bracket drill 9″ O.C. from wall.

Place a bearing washer over floor hole and set bottom gate pin into floor mount hole.

Step 3:

Pair Gate Installation Step 3Extend gate and hang “L” bracket on top of gate to verify where it will be mounted. To release tension you may lift the wheel 1/2”-3/4” off the floor. Mark and drill pilot holes into door frame or wall. It may be easier to drill pilot holes if you remove the gate from it’s floor mount. Place bearing washer and bottom gate pin back into
floor mount. Slip “L” bracket over top of gate and secure with 5/16” x 2” lag bolts.

Step 4:

Extend and retract gate to its stops to work out stiffness. Always raise the drop pin to keep it from dragging across the floor. Now you
are done mounting the hinged side of the gate.

Secure gate to locking bar with 1/2” shaft diameter padlock. Open gate slowly at first to avoid warping.
