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.

IN KANSAS, THE MOST COMMON PITFALLS WHEN USING A BUMP GATE SYSTEM ARE:

“When I ordered my Bump N’ Drive, I thought I’d need lot of help putting it in service as my left arm and hand is very deformed from birth some 70 years ago, but I finished and it works very well, it took me a lot longer then most, but I did it myself, so if I can do it anyone can. Its open range here and I put it in to keep other cows out.” – Thanks, Bob H.

“After receiving the kit and DVD I installed my gate (put down posts and attached metal fittings, etc.) in only a few hours. Everything seemed to work perfectly. In a few days I will be 77 and am beginning to have mental issues. When this happens, “I try again tomorrow.” My son, who is mechanically minded, finished the bump mechanism assembly and now the gate works great. Thanks for your help, and for producing this wonderful Bump N’ Drive, which already saves me much time and effort. If I can ever help or recommend anything to others, please let me know.” – John D.
