We had some gates fixed across the driveway. They are fixed to side of our house and neighbours garden wall pillar. I noticed a small gap appeared, between the house wall and wooden post. Wooden posts are fixed to wall and gates attached to wooden posts. Came home Monday to find that the gap was now like 3" wide and gates woudn't open. Found out the window cleaner has been climbing over them to open the gate. Anyway, have knocked them back in for now, but what is the best way to fix them so hey don't come away again ???

what size gates are they and how big are the posts?
PIcture would help.

Tell window cleaner not to do it again. :D

my side gate is hung from a post on the garage wall. i used 10mm galvanised studding, through the wall, with a nut and washer inside the garage.

This may look unsightly if it is a habitable room, though.
