Step 6: Attach turnbuckles (part M) to top corner brackets and extend turnbuckles completely as shown in figure 6. Step 7: Run brace wire diagonally to bottom corners through center hole in corner bracket, take out slack, and secure tightly with wire clamp (part N) as shown in figure 7. Step 8: Tighten turnbuckles making sure gate is square by measuring them across and adjusting so they are equal measurements. Trim excess wire, your gate should resemble figure 8. Step 9: Attach mesh netting, which you provide depending on fence type and gate size, to your gate frame using self locking ties (part J) approximately every 6 inches as shown in figure 9. Trim excess mesh and ties. Step 10: Attach female part of hinge (part H) to one side of your gate as shown in figure 10, attach one hinge 18 inches from the top and the second hinge 18 inches from the bottom. Step 11: On the opposite side of your gate assemble and attach latches 18 inches from the top and bottom ensuring the padlock hole is on the bottom. Shown in figure 11. Your finished gate should resemble figure 12. Step 12: Drill 3/8” hole 6 inches up from the bottom of the 9’ post. Drive rebar (part R) through the hole of the 9’ gate posts (part O). Dig hole approximately 36” deep on one side of gate opening and cement or tamp. Place the 2’ extension (part S) w/post cap (part W) on top of 9’ post by sliding silver end inside top of 9’ post.
