Gate Hinges Straight Hook & Band Pack Spelter Galvanised 50 x 610 x 165mm
very poor product
I bought two pairs of these hinges. The galvanising was lumpy, two of the hinges had large scars where galvanising was missing altogether and bare steel was exposed.
The welds on the back of the 'hooks' were poorly executed and protruded so much it would be impossible to mount them neatly onto the gate posts.
But most significantly, none of the four hinges I purchased would pivot, they all locked solid even before being bolted up.
That said Screwfix refunded without quibble.

Check BEFORE leaving the shop
Its a good value product but the on the set I got one hinge pin 'bolt' was out of true by 10 maybe 15 degrees.
Choice was going back or fixing the plate skewed (Not suitable for the location)
And as they're not usually held in stock .........
If it was self closing I'd expect BOTH out of true by 10 to 15 degrees.

Best set of gate hinges yet
Have bought many set of gate hinges before but they all kept snapping and rusting etc. but this set is the strongest and easiest to work with and have a feel to them that shouts out quality. will buy more of this type than any others. would definately recommend this set.

Good hefty construction and are well galvinized. Some rough edges required a little filing. Hinge and hook joints on mine were very tight - good because needed no adjustment for gate droop. Are strong enough to support my 6'x40" gate that is very heavy. Tight joints losened with WD40. Gate opens and closes as it should. Very satisfied.
