I want to hang from the left, what size t hinges, 18?

screw sizes about 1/12?

leave 10 mill either side of gate for clearance?

any tips for hanging, and fitting a latch to open from both sides

t hinges, do they go slightly over for the clearance?

any best methods, and can you buy gates to hang from the left

wickes seem to be right side?


The plan is 4x2 on wall, plug in, 6x3 gate, 3x3 post and 3 ft of closeboard fence to garage wall

screw closeboard to rails,

There is a electric cable from outside to garage, think it runs nr were the post will want to be, how far down should it be, i will dig slowly, hoping to find it
