I Just finished my deck and gate, but the gate seems to be sagging. The gate its self if fine, its the 4x4 that the hinges attach to. Day one gate closed great, day 2 no longer will latch on its own. 4x4 is attached to the 2x12 stringer with 2 3/8 bolts. I thought it would be strong enough with the 2/12 stringer boxed in with 2x12 steps. Anyone have any idea how I can strengthen the post that doesn't include tearing up the concrete. or an idea for a lighter gate.
thanks for any help
