If you have struggled to close a gate behind you after coming home with bags of groceries or after a long week of travel, you should know there is a solution. Nobody wants to struggle with closing the gate and juggling several bags at the same time.
The solution is to install “self closing gate hinges” or have someone install them for you. These hinges are attractive, made of stainless steel, and designed to last. But, what’s more important is that they allow you to walk through the gate, without having to worry about pulling it shut and closing a latch. Gate hinges come as a set of two and often include a self closing latch as well.
The gentle motion of the gate closing is enough to engage the latch that comes with the hinge kit. There is no need to worry about turning around to secure the gate. Just walk through and let the gate swing naturally back to it’s original position.
