    Gate closer

    Hi All,
    I need a gate closer for a 6' wide wood fence. I tried the spring that Home Depot sells, but it is not strong enough. Has anyone used a Lockey TB600?

    If anyone else has a large gate, please let me know what you are using.

    Thanks!

    Re: Gate closer

    I installed the Lockey 600. This is a heavy duty closer.

    Some suggestions:

    Put the closer at the bottom of the gate if you have any play in your hinges. The closer is under constant tension, so I you have a small gap around the pintle of your hinge the gate will be pushed up at the opening side instead of sagging (which is what would happen if you mount the closer up top).

    Pick up some 1/4" bolts (I used lag bolts) to mount the closer.

    Call Lockey before you order to talk to them a out what size closer you need. The 600 is overkill for my gate because I built it as light as I could.
