Common Gate Components:
Fence Post - Vertical support from which the hinge and gate hangs. The post also attaches to the fence panel.
Gate Upright - Vertical part of the gate where you mount the hinge arm. Size varies based upon the dimension and style of the gate.
Gate Width and Weight - Width is the horizontal measurement of the gate. This measurement, along with the weight of the gate, will determine the load capacity your hinge can support.
Gate Material - Common gate materials include wood, vinyl, aluminum and steel.
