Hinges Can Break if Strained
Even an average gate can be very heavy, and all its weight is suspended on four or more hinges. At times, due to corrosion or inferior quality, hinges can get fractured due to this weight. In this case, hinge welding is absolutely essential and must be carried out as quickly as possible.
Can’t Open the Gate With the Remote
Most gate openers and clickers are waterproof or are extensively insulated to prevent water damage. However, there can be times when the remote control or clicker stops working or the motor stops receiving the signal. In such cases, a total overhaul of all the related parts is required. If they are beyond repair, replacement is the only option.
