Our Galvanized, Pressed Steel Bulldog Hinges are a great way to save money on your gate hardware. These simple hinges can be substituted for malleable gate hinges for a lower price, without sacrificing utility. These hinges are designed to open 90 degrees, but can be made to open a full 180 degrees with the use of an adapter. The heavy galvanized coating protects the underlying pressed steel from rust and corrosion. Install 2 hinges on gates under 8' tall and 3 hinges on gates that are over 8' tall, or very heavy..
Bulldog hinges sit under your gate frame, supporting the frame's swinging motion. If you find that the hinge collar is cutting in to the gate framework, consider using a hinge bearing plug to bear the weight of the gate and preserve your hinges.

To install bulldog hinges, put the large end around your gate post and secure with the included bolts and nuts. Take the collar end piece off and put it around your 1 5/8" or 2" gate frame. The gates framework horizontal rails should sit on top of the hinges so that they support the weight of the gate and facilitate a smooth swinging motion, so you will probably need an extension at the bottom of your chain link gate's vertical rail. The bottom hinge will sit just above the ground and the gate will slide along the circumference of the collar. If you find that the collar is cutting into your framework, then you can use a hinge bearing plug to sit between the hinge and the gate.
