This gate completes the look of a beautiful privacy fence. Steel reinforced bottom rail eliminates sagging and its overall "Good neighbour" design means it has an attractive appearance on both sides. The gate is not assembled. Set Hinge and Latch Posts 43" apart to allow for hardware and gate (actual gate width 41-1/4" plus 1" for hinge and 3/4" for latch) and pickets slide into channeled rail with no screws or rivets. Picket size: 5/8" x 11-3/8" tongue and groove and gate size is 6' high x 42" wide. Use Gate Post Stiffener (5423-421) for Hinge and Latch Posts. Post Kit (5423-447) sold separately.
