How do I adjust the self-closing gate?
There are three factors that affect the adjustment of your self-closing gate:
- Make sure the truss support posts are fully inserted into the patio.
- The vertical height adjustment of the magnetically triggered latch is adjusted by a small set screw on the side of the latch by the gate frame catch that locks the latch in place. By removing that set screw, you can slide the tall latch up or down slightly to adjust the vertical height. Once it is adjusted, replace the screw in the closest hole that lines up to it.
- The horizontal catch alignment (on the swinging frame) is adjusted by a set screw located where you would face into the inside of the catch. Turning that screw moves the catch in or out.
