With the help of one of our installation kits, the UDG Safety Gate easily attaches to square tube as large as 2 1/2″. These offer a great alternative to a welding plate. Instructions below for the Square Tube Kit.
UDG Square Tube Installation Kit
Locate the block in the box labeled “UDG Angle Iron Installation” (the remaining contents in the box will not be used.)
Attach block to the 4” x 2 3/8” metal plate in the square tube kit using 1/2” nut.
Position top of the 4” x 5” metal plate 5 3/4” below top of the guardrail (plate should be configured with the four holes at the top and the two slotted holes at the bottom).
Attach plate by putting the two 3/8” x 3 1/2” carriage bolts through the plate.
Bolts will pass through plate with the pipe guardrail positioned between the plates. Securely fasten by tightening two 3/8” nuts.
Secure the hinge & gate to the plate using four 3/8″ x 7″ carriage bolts.
Top of the hinge will be positioned close to the top of the guardrail.
Cover exposed threads of bolts with the black vinyl end caps supplied.
Install the block and plate assembly onto the opposite guardrail post, using two 3/8” x 3 1/2” carriage bolts (the plate should be configured so that block is on top).
Install two 3/8” nuts to the carriage bolts. Once the block is positioned approximately 1″ below the bar of the gate, tighten the nuts. Cover exposed threads of bolts with the black vinyl end caps supplied.
NOTE: The bar of the gate should not rest on the block. Likewise, the block should not interfere with the opening or closing of the gate. It is intended to provide vertical support in an emergency.
