Finishing touches to the gates
Close the gates and add the hardware.
Fit the bolt and gate latch. Note that usually the latch should be put half-way up the gate, but if the gate is to keep little kids in or out, then put the gate latch towards the top of the gate.
Finally, cut a hole in the gate handy to the latch and big enough to put a hand through. This is so the gate can be opened from inside or outside.
NOTE: There is also another benefit to the "offset hinge": the gate will always swing shut by itself, merely because of gravity.
