Drop Forks

 These gravity type self-closing hinge sets for chain link and tubular gates have many advantages. First, there are no springs to wear out as found in many other self-closing hinge sets; these hinges close with the natural force of gravity. When the gate opens, the bottom of the gate is forced upwards in a slight angle, gravity pulls the gate back to the latched/ closed position. By raising the lower portion of the hinge, you may adjust/ increase the force at which the gate will close. The second advantage to these self-closing hinges is that when the gate opens, it lifts slightly making these hinges an option with slight grade changes. This will allow gate installations on hills, yet keep maintain a tight clearance when closed. The amount these gates will lift will vary depending on many variables such as the height of bottom hinge and the width of gate. They may compensate for a couple inches of incline at best. Hinge sets include two hinge parts for gate post, 2 hinge parts for gate frame, and all necessary bolts. Latches sold separately. Child Safety Latches or Magna-Latches are perfect matches.Listed below is the most commonly used latch for residential chain link single walk gates. The fork is sandwiched by the fork clamp and attached with two 5/16" x 1 1/4" carriage bolts. These latches are padlockable. Order clamp sized to fit gate upright frame and fork sized to fit latch post. We also sell complete Rolling Gate Hardware Kits
