Gate Accessories

We carry the most commonly used fittings in stock and we are happy to source more unusual requirements. We choose heavy duty galvanised fittings which might seem like overkill on a summer’s day but they come into their own during the gales in winter.

If you need help choosing fittings we are happy to explain how they perform over time.

Particularly when it comes to gate eyes and the hooks or pins they hang on size does matter and customers should be aware that there are three common sizes of gate eye and that the pins are not interchangeable. They are referred to as 19mm hooks, ¾ inch and 1/2inch. If you are looking to replace either just a gate eye or just a gate hook please measure the old one carefully and send us the measurement unless you are confident you know which one you need – standard agricultural gates use 19mm but some heavy duty cattle gates also use 25mm.

Please note - prices on this website do not include VAT. VAT is added in the checkout area and will be included in the total in the confirming email sent to you on completion of your order.
