Gate Spring Black 200mm
I last fitted one of these things back in the 1980's. The experience at the time was terrible with the spring acting more like a catapult for the small stop pieces over a period of perhaps an hour rather than it being an easy to fit spring.
With this latest spring my experience was completely different. Three half turns and one quarter back-up after screwing the spring in place without fuss was all that was needed for a perfectly closing gate - perhaps a five minute process at most from start to finish. Very impressed and will purchase again without hesitation.
I can't comment on reliability as the spring is so new but this is assumed to be ok. Similarly it's difficult to comment on features as it's a spring!

Gate spring back
What a good price. Works better than I thought it would. Stops the shed door blowing back in your face.

Not the best purchase I have e
not a particulalry inspiring tension locking system. Lost a pin early doors under tension, spring rendered next to useless!!

cheap but not great quality. drilling for the locking and tensioning pegs is not deep enough to keep the locking pegs in. 2 of the 3 I bought failed within hours of fitting. The tension bars are too weak to apply much tension before they bend and slip out of the shallow holes as did the locking pegs, causing the failure.
