The guide rollers
Because of the width of the gate, I couldn't find a suitable roller guide so I had to make my own.
However, I could get the rollers from a gate manufacturer and I obtained a couple of galvanized 'L' brackets from the hardware store. I then had the components.
I bolted and welded the two 'L' brackets together, drilled a couple of holes to take the rollers, positioned the unit over the gate and bolted it to the post.
The latch was a different kettle of fish. I couldn't find anything that suited so I had to design my own and have an engineer make it for me.
I wanted something that would work easily, lock the gate to prevent lifting and be very strong.
You can see the design here and some photos below.
That's it! Done! Finished! Updates will be posted on the next page.
