How To Fix Sagging Vinyl Fence Dumpster Gates

Many people with commercial-sized dumpsters know that it is a common issue for the gate to start to sag after a while. This usually happens when the gate is used frequently or has been used for a few years. Instead of having a sagging vinyl dumpster gate, there is a couple of things to do to alleviate this problem. Fortunately, the fixes are cheap and work well.

The first option and probably the most common is to install a Heavy Duty Vinyl Fence Gate Wheel. This wheel for swinging vinyl gates can fit up to a 2" thick vinyl section. The springs underneath the chassis of the wheel provide a smooth motion over uneven terrain. It works especially well with gravel or any rock debris that may be in the gate's path. Installation is a breeze with the included hardware. Installing the gate wheel will ensure the vinyl fence dumpster gate will last for years without damaging the bottom of the fence section.

Another popular and sometimes used with the gate wheel is the use of a Adjustable Anti-Sag Vinyl Gate Brace Kit. This brace kit is not limited to strictly vinyl fences; it can also be used for wood or metal. The aluminum brace fits diagonally onto the gate. This gives rigidity and strength to the dumpster gate allowing for years of use. Installation is done in less than 5 minutes with all the included mounting hardware. The brace can fit gate sizes as small as 36" x 48" (3 ft. x 4 ft.) or as large as 72" x 72" (6 ft. x 6 ft.). The adjustable acorn nut and inner tube make it simple to change the size accordingly. The powder-coated finish will offer weather resistance and the stainless steel fasteners will provide high strength, ensuring there is no sag or wobble in the vinyl gate for the dumpster.

With these two simple fixes for a sagging vinyl dumpster gate, there's no reason to ever worry about a damaged, sagging gate again. It's recommended to have both the brace kit and gate wheel for maximum support and strength. These options are cost-effective and simple to install on any vinyl dumpster gate.
