Swing Gate Uphill Steel Strap Gate Hinges
When installing a gate on a drastic incline or decline, finding a hinge that will keep your gate in place is difficult. On top of that, if your gate is over 1,000 pounds, it becomes a safety hazard if your hinges loosen or completely snap off. D&D Technologies has developed a hinge as part of their BadAss series that works well on an incline or decline swing gate to avoid these complications.

Why Are The Bottom And Top Hinge Straps Different Lengths?

How To Weld Hinges
To ensure your hinges are not damaged while welding, complete the process in small segments. Weld one surface at a time and switch between the top and bottom hinges. After each hinge part is welded, let that part cool before welding again on the next segment.
