    Installed the Gates yesterday. Ran into a couple of hiccups!! One post was 1 1/4 inches lower than the other one so we had to correct the hinges on one gate. Still have to do finish work on them. My friends are happy with them. and I can't see the Boo Boo from my house!!!! but
    Really if you build something your eyes always go to the imperfection!!! The gates open and close great. Check out my other posts on my progress to get to this point.

      1 1/4 inches is hard to correct for sure. I always used a transit or Locke level to shoot elevations on the posts. These came out pretty nice in spite of a little burp.
