What is a Bump Gate?
A bump gate is a mechanical attachment kit that allows you to turn your existing gate into a drive-through gate without replacing it.
For this purpose, we’ve created a functional and economical bump gate attachment kit for ranchers, farmers, and property owners that desire to navigate on and off the property with ease.
Whether you frequently experience bad weather, have had an accident that restricts mobility, or simply want to make entering and exiting the property a bit easier without replacing your entire gate that uses electricity, a bump gate is the perfect solution.
BUMP N’ DRIVE FEATURES:
Professional installation isn’t necessary.
Takes a few hours, and you’re all set.
No electricity required.
Our gate opener can open and close gates by pure mechanical and gravitational means.
IN CALIFORNIA, THE MOST COMMON PITFALLS WHEN USING A BUMP GATE SYSTEM ARE:
- Bumping “too hard” and damaging the system or gate.
- Paying too much… this system is meant to save you money & time.
CALIFORNIA BUYER FAQS:
Question: What kind of gate does this need to attach to?
Answer: The wire mesh will work however we must have at least two metal tubes that our bump arms attach to. I have lots of customers that use tube gates from their local farm supply then add a wire mesh fence to it? If you buy a gate, get the model with 2-inch diameter tubes.
Question: Does the kit come with the release mechanism for both sides of the gate? Enter and leaving side of gate?
Answer: Yes it does, all parts are included in our gate opener kit. You will need to supply a 2-inch tube gate and posts required.
Question: Does the gate need to swing both ways?
Answer: Good question! Yes, the gate kit will allow it to swing one way or from both directions.
Question: Since it’s not electric, how does it release the gate so it closes back up?
Answer: We have a patented system that has a timed catch and release arm. This arm catches the gate when it opens, holds it for a variable time up to 29 seconds then releases it. The gate automatically closes and latches.
Question: Does this come with anything to set a timer to allow for a truck and trailer to make it thru before it closes on you?
Answer: It closes slowly enough to allow this to happen.
