Two Ways to Make a Self Closing Gate

If you are building a pool fence and wondering how to make your gate self-closing so that it meets the ICC pool codes, here are two ways to accomplish that:




1) Self Closing Hinges - Self closing hinges like the D&D TruClose Mini Multi-Adjust are spring loaded.  They are manufactured to automatically close your gate.







 


 2) Spring Gate Closer - A spring gate closer is a metal spring that attaches to your gate and gate post.  They are a good way to create a self closing gate when you already have hinges in place.  When you push open the gate, the spring stretches and creates enough force to pull the gate closed.   Gate springs are often used to close wood and ornamental gates that have basic strap hinges.
