|Building a self closing deck gate
This section is part of a larger article from building my pool. Below is a picture of the gate, it was simple to create using a few pressure treated 2x4's but I wanted to highlight the hinges and latch that I used. The deck is open to the house and the deck enters into the pool area so I needed to have a self closing gate on the deck with a lockable latch. I found Tru-close hinges while searching on Google and they turned out to be great. You can find the specific hinges at this site. You can find the latch that I used here.
