Attaching a gate to a concrete post DIYnot Forums

03/09/2019  Location: Gwynedd. Country: You can indeed drill them. I would be tempted to drill through the post in at least two places and use thru bolts to attach timber, from which you can hang your gate. They can shatter if not careful, so use a small drill bit first, then gradually a bigger one. That way you'll probably slide past any re-bar within.

And the constant opening closing of the gates might put a strain on a concrete post which could cause cracks over time. If you can track down a decent oak post on ebay or something then even better.

Can you Install Fencing or Gates into Brick Paving or onto ...

As you can see, it is possible to install fencing and gates into brick paving or concrete. In fact, it is our preference that you install paving or concrete first, especially with pool fencing, as the finished floor level is then known and we can ensure the installed fence meets with pool fencing height requirements as per AUS/NZ 1926.1 -2012.

Garden gate to concrete fence post? DIYnot Forums

They want it replaced which is simple enough, but they want a push button codelock handle on it, so it will need to close onto a flush surface in order to latch, so I can't copy the existing design.

Fastening wooden batten to concrete fence post? Screwfix ...

15/06/2005  Firstly, the concrete posts will have reinforcing rods in them so think of this when drilling. Repetitive slamming of the gate may weaken the concrete around the plug and it might break out. I have done this on a post and I drilled out a cup in the path for the post to sit in to give some extra strength. A metal strap fixed to the bottom of the post and into the path plus a strap from the post ...

attach gate to house or post? - Fine Homebuilding
