    • Use your open end wrench or pliers to loosen and remove the nuts on the bottom tension band.

    • It's important to begin with the bottom band, as removing the top band first will put pressure on the bottom band and make it harder to unscrew.

    • Loosen and remove top tension band.

    • Remove and place gate to the side.

    • Mark the height of hinges on the post.

    • When loosened, these will fall. If not returned to the hinge's original distance from each other on the post it may be impossible to reconstruct your gate.

    • If the hinges have already sagged on your gate before you disassembled, they may need to be raised from their original position to make your gate effective once again.

    • Loosen nuts on hinge.

    • Realign hinges so that they are perpendicular to the gate when latched.

    • Remove any ornament on top of the gate by unscrewing and removing nuts, if necessary.

    • Place your carpenter's level flat on top of the gate.

    • If the bubble is not in the center of the level, your gate is sagging. This is likely because you need to adjust the distance between your hinges in Step 4.

    • Place the ornament back on, and fasten the bolts.

Conclusão

If your gate is still not latching properly or is sagging, you may need to disassemble your gate again and adjust the alignment or height of your hinges until the gate latches properly.

If the problem persists, it’s possible that your post wasn’t installed correctly, your fence may be experiencing pressure from structures leaning on it, or your nuts and bolts may be worn and deficient. These problems will require additional procedures.
