Step 4:  Install Cantilever Rollers & Covers

After the concrete has hardened, you may install the two bottom cantilever rollers to the two roller posts, one per post, using provided U-bolts. Install the roller on the highest grade first if terrain is uneven. Care should be taken that cantilever rollers are not installed too low where snow, ice, and freezing ground could impede performance. A straight uniform length of tubing, or pipe may be used to level the second roller to the first by placing it across the top of the rollers. Firmly tighten all nuts on cantilever roller U-Bolts.

Cantilever gate rollers are available in steel and nylon. Steel or nylon roller covers are highly recommended to help protect pinch points.
