Tru-Close Series 3 - Adjustable, Self-Closing Hinges

D&D Limited Lifetime WarrantyTru-Close Series 3

Top-selling TruClose Gate Hinges have long been the most reliable self-closing gate hinges on the market. The new "Series 3" range offers a unique, custom approach to gate hardware by introducing trim covers to match your locks and lighting fixtures, while concealing all fasteners.

The ideal self-closing (tension-adjustable) hinge for mid-weight to heavy-weight metal gates. Tough, molded construction with stainless steel torsion spring. 100% rust-free for life. No binding, no sagging, no staining. Quick and easy adjustment feature. "L2" model offers quick-fit alignment legs for added fitting strength. No fasteners included (requires 10-gauge fasteners).

Regular - Suitable for gates up to 66 lbs (30 kg.) and able to withstand loads up to 770 lbs (350 kg.), there are models available for metal, wood and vinyl gates.

Heavy Duty - For heavy duty range square frame gates weighing up to 154 lbs (70 kg.). Works best with ornamental aluminum or steel gate and fence materials in high use areas.

Safety Caps - Safety Caps are available as an option for TruCloseŽ hinges to improve safety and security. When installed on the bottom hinge, the Cap's steep "ramp" will deter a toddler from scaling the fence or reaching the latch. There are models for Regular or Heavy Duty hinges.
