Kant-Slam Hydraulic Gate and Door Closer

It can be installed on the top, side, middle or bottom of the left or right side of the gate.

It works on gates or doors up to 68 Kilogram and can be used outdoors or indoors. Installation is easy and does not require professional skills.

Cannonball Gate Closer

A cannonball gate closer is a Colonial-era gate closer that could have originated the term "old ball and chain." It automatically closes the gate with the weight of the ball. The chain is 5 feet long and relatively easy to install. This option is also more budget-friendly than other gate closers. An additional post will need to be installed directly behind the hinge post. The ball weighs 2.27kg. and is made from cast iron and coated in black polyester finish to prevent rusting.

Adjustable and Spring Gate Closers

An adjustable cable gate closer takes only minutes to install. It is made out of heavy-duty materials and coated with a corrosion-resistant finish to withstand years of wear and tear. The adjustable cable can accommodate a padlock for safety. Spring gate closers are ideal for wooden gates. It is a concealed gate closer that attaches to a horizontal rail and gate post. Most spring gate closers are made to be rust-resistant and are known to last for many years. A security tip is to pair it with a self-closing latch. The tension of the spring can be adjusted as needed.
