Note where your Brackets attach. You have Rectangular Post Brackets on the Left & the Right side of your Gate. There are 3 holes on the Bracket. You want to note which of the holes the Eye Screw and Quick Link are installed in. This is important to know for when you put your Gate back up, so it will align properly.
Open the door & start with removing the Gate from the Hinged side first.
Remove the Quick Link & unlatch the Pole. Reattach the Quick Link to the Eye Screw so you don’t lose it.
Pull out the Pole that you just disconnected
Pull out the Gate Frame. Leave the Hinges and Gate Post attached and set aside.
Now move over to the other side of your gate, the side with the Latch attached and repeat the process of removing the Quick Link and unlatching the Pole. Remember to reattach the Quick Link and Eye Screw so you don’t lose it.
Pull out the Pole
Pull out the Gate Post
Your Self-Closing Gate is now removed!
Make sure you store your pool fence parts in a clean and rodent free environment.
