Bulldog Chain Link Gate Hinges are used in heavy duty and commercial fencing. Each Bulldog Hinge is rigid in nature and capable of holding large and oversized gates.
Bull dog hinges mount directly to gate posts, with one hinge sitting level/on top of the ground or grade, with the other hinge(s) mounted at the top and sometimes middle of the post. The hinges are secured to the post via the U-bolt included with them. The teeth of the hinge bite into the post by tightening the U-bolt. Once the hinges are mounted on the post the back portion of the top hinge is removed, to allow the gate frame to sit against the hinge. Re-secure the back of the bulldog hinge with the gate frame now sitting inside *NOTE, there will be loose play on the top hinge as it acts as simply a guide. The weight of the gate will sit on top of the bottom hinge, dispersing the weight into the ground *NOTE the gate will need to have a 1" or 2" extension in order to slide into the top of the hinge (a bottom ball can be driven into the vertical gate member if the gate has no extension).
