"Having not read any of the reviews before I bought the gate spring and when fitting it found none of the pins fitted the holes so I had to remove it so as to drill all hole deeper to take pins, this was only downfall and suggest screwfix sorts this problem out"
"I clearly had a very different experience to the other reviewers. The rod supplied for mine was way too thin for the holes so kept slipping out while trying to increase tension, this, plus the pins not fitting very well caused them to pop out at every attempt and those little things are very difficult to find once they hit the floor. Eventually they both vanished somewhere leaving me with a useless chunk of metal screwed to my gate. I found this product very disappointing."
"This was supplied with pins for locking the spring in position and a small steel rod to tension the spring. Niether the pins or the rod fit the holes in the spring. This means you can't place enough tension on the spring to close the gate which isn't all bad, because once under tension the pins come flying out."
