Finding the ideal place for your gate
When choosing the location for your gate, try to make sure that you place it at a spot where it will be easy for your car to park off road while you to wait for your gate to open. You should also choose a spot where you’ll be able to see the whole, or most, of the gate. In this way, you’ll be able to have a quick view to check if there are any obstructions to the gate.
Have a good look around your gate
Having a simple look around your gate may seem like an obvious tip, but it is a very good one! We suggest that you check that there aren’t any obstructions on or in the tracks, or that there aren’t any loose parts, such as screws and hinges, lying about. You can also check for any visible signs of wear and tear on any part of the gate and fix it immediately.
