We offer the best and largest assortment of gate hinges!
Assembling a gate is one of the most challenging projects most homeowners take on. After all, you need to look for a hinge that can safely handle the size of your gate while also considering the overall look you want to achieve. The hinge you choose might add to the gate's style or make it even more functional and secure in the long run. Some hinges, including hybrid models, offer an assortment of features, so you don't have to settle in terms of aesthetics or practicality.
We offer a wide array of gate hinges to suit any need, including surface-mounted, spring, heavy-duty, pintle, butt varieties, and more. This assortment includes single-acting, double-acting, and reverse-acting options. You can narrow the search by selecting the desired hinge action, size, grade, and finish in our Shopping Options column. Whether you want the gate to swing both ways or weight rating is the only determinant in your decision, we have all your needs covered.
Surface-mounted hinges are generally used for light- to medium-weight gates and barn doors. They are easier to install and come in a wide variety of decorative styles. Many of the strap hinges in our selection feature an antiqued look in a durable black finish to add character to gates, doors, and more. Some strap hinges come with reversible hinge pins to accommodate right- or left-hand applications. Tee hinges, or T-hinges, are a combination between strap hinges and butt hinges, providing the ideal solution for narrow mounting surfaces.
When you install a composite, metal, or wood driveway gate at the entrance of your property, only a handful of hinges are up to the task. Bolt-On and Weld-On hinges are ideal for large and heavy gates, because they have the highest weight rating, often exceeding 1,000 or even 2,000 pounds per pair of hinges. We offer a variety of Bolt-On or Weld-on hinges for round frames, uphill hinges for graded driveway gate installations, ball-bearing strap hinges, and much more.
Looking for an all-in-one solution? SureClose is a hinge and closer in one convenient package, providing quiet, smooth, and consistent closing force in a tamper-resistant design. Our SureClose Safety ReadyFit hinges are ideal for swimming pool gates and come with either high-strength aluminum or steel mounting brackets for screw-on applications. Safety versions do not hold open at 90 degrees, making them ideal for areas where safety is a primary concern. We carry both self-closing and non-self-closing versions.

Many of our heavy duty gate hinges are equipped with roller bearings.

Face frame cabinets are commonly made by American cabinet manufactures. Frameless: Frameless cabinets do not have a face-frame, and instead rely on thicker side panels for strength. Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
