Installing a gate on an uphill driveway slope

If your driveway has an uphill slope you may think that you cannot have a gate to help secure your property.


This is not true. There are hinge options available that allow for installation of a driveway gate or walkway gate.


At Locks4Gates we offer a steel uphill strap hinge set by SHUT-IT which allows for a gate to be installed on an uphill slope.


This hinge offers:

•          Four sealed maintenance free bearings (no greasing)

•          Ideal for flat post installation

•          Limited lifetime warranty (5 years on bearings)

•          Swings 1800

•          Load rating per gate: 3,000 lbs (1,360kg)

•          Maximum gate weight: 1,500 lbs (680kg)


Simple installation as well. See diagram below or a PDF can be downloaded from our website under item CI3975:
