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 TEXAS, 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.
TEXAS 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 it work with double gates? My gates close in the middle, but there is no post to latch to. Can it latch from the bottom and be driven over?
Answer: SORRY IT DOES NOT WORK WITH DOUBLE GATES. IT DOES LATCH FROM THE BOTTOM AND IT SWINGS FROM ONE HINGE POST ON ONE END. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS MY CELL IS 573 579 9432.
Question: Theoretically could this be installed on a wooden privacy fence gate??
Answer: Yes. You would need to purchase a regular tube gate, preferably a 2-inch diameter, and modify your boards to be attached to the gate.
Question: I like the product, but is there a way to add a remote-controlled lock?
Answer: Sorry, a remote control lock cannot be added to our gate opener kit. It has a patented gate latch but does not lock.
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.
