if you have a fenced garden area or a gated pasture where you keep livestock, you know closing the gate behind you can be a hassle, when you’re carrying buckets of feed or gardening tools.
There is a good solution. Self closing gate hinges are easy to install and allow the gate to close by itself, even latching if you install the right latch. self closing hinges are not expensive and may well be worth the effort it takes to install them on the pasture gate, the garden gate, or the gate by your front walk where guests usually come and go.
There are instructions for installing the gate hinges and a way to adjust them to the right tension for your particular gate. The cost is minimal and the convenience is worth the small investment to buy and install the self closing hinges.
