A crank handle, fitted with a loop of steel cable, mounts on a steel strap that nails to the gate post. Turning the winch handles draws in the gate post. A pin locks the winch in place once it's tightened. We also make a portable gate winch that you can carry round in the pickup to use on any gate. It has a short length of chain on the metal mounting strap that holds the winch to the post.
For gates designed to lay down flat to drive over, you can put extra cable on the winch that'll pull out as far as the post drops. Sells for $24.95. (Fred Davison, Davison Industries, Rt. 1, Box 7, High wood, Mont. 59450 ph 406 733-5031)
