I had a little project that turned a regular gate into an auto-close
gate. the mod worked, unfortunately, it worked too well. the gate
slams too hard and too fast. This action causes the gate to shift
positions slightly along the wall everytime its used. suggestions on
any way to slow it down?
this is what I used.
for the gate
That's what I think too.
I fooled around with a friend's contraption, they used springs to self
close doors. There's not much you can do to fix the obvious faults.
Adapting a door closer (how about that, a common device made to do just
that job!?) is a much better plan.
