Forever Hinges Keep Gates Swinging
Failed gate hinges were one of the biggest complaints Chris McBurney heard from producers while designing cattle handling facilities and pens. So, he got busy in his workshop to develop the Forever Hinge.
    “I thought that if the steel is around the horizontal part of the gate, it would be stronger and not fail like strap hinges,” he explains.
    McBurney’s final patented design has five bolts on the part of the hinge fastened to the gate. It works on 1.66-in. and 2-in. tube gates. There are options for how it’s mounted to a post including a long bolt or a lag plate for wood posts or a weld nut for steel posts.
    With the bolts, the heavy-duty hinge can easily be removed and used on another gate. The hinge is also hot-dipped galvanized to protect it from rust and weather.
    McBurney sells the Forever Hinge for $125/pair (includes shipping), with a 5-year warranty.
    Customers include small producers, feedlot owners and horse owners.
    “We want everyone to be successful in agriculture,” McBurney says, adding his slogan, “It’s not for every gate. It’s for the ones you want to keep swinging.”
