COTH to the Rescue....Again... How to Keep Heavy Gate from Blowing off in the Wind
Murphy's Law for the Farm:
Anything that Can Break on the Farm, Will Break on the Farm.........
Today the hay shed gate fell off in the wind. I had it open to get the evening hay out, and then poof! It was torn off the hinge and on the ground.
My husband built it out of a metal tubular gate with vertical pieces of lumber attached across.
So for the future, what is the trick for being able to open a heavy-ass gate while you are going in and out, but not have it blow off?
I can tell you how not to keep it from blowing off in the wind
Do Not Grab it as it goes by. Not only does this not work, it will result in a shoulder tear and impending surgery. On the good shoulder.
