Screw the bottom flat cap

Step 1:

Attach flat caps, one on each bottom of the aluminum posts. Then, screw them on using four #8 screws for each cap.

Attach the first slats from the cap

Step 2:

Before cutting the aluminum posts, slide in two post covers for each post and cut them together. Use tape to temporary hold them in place.

Cut the aluminum posts

Step 3:

Measure the gate’s height. Cut two aluminum posts 1”-2” shorter than the gate’s overall height. This will allow the gate to have a gap from the ground.

Cut gates aluminum slats

Step 4:

Measure the opening for the gate. Mark and cut the gate’s aluminum slats to size: The size of the aluminum slats should be 5” shorter than the total gate opening. (The vertical posts will add 2 and 1/8” from each side and the rest will be for the gaps between the aluminum gate to the side posts)

Attach the first slats from the cap

Step 5:

Place the first aluminum slat all the way down to the flat cap between the aluminum posts. Drive a self-drilling screw from the flat cap to the slat.

Top and bottom aluminum slats

Step 6:

Place another slat on the top to use as a guider so your spacing will be equal top and bottom. With quick square, make sure the gate corners are 90 degrees before continuing.

Slide the rest of spacers and slats

Step 7:

Using the stainless-steel L brackets and screws, attach the slat from both sides to both posts. Then, slide your spacers and more slats. Use L bracket at least every other slat.
