    walker-talker, That's a nice looking gate.

    Looks like you might have your Trimmer Trap mounted backwards?

    Why doesn't it latch straight 90 degrees? Looks like its leaning out to the side. Look at the latching for most other regular gates, and make it that way. Like a rod inside a pipe. IF its leaning, it will eventually wear and possibly fall down while driving (NOT good). Just a quick observation.


    And one other thing. Is that a Trimmer Trap? Don't you have it mounted backwards? Round hand latch should be on the engine side of the trimmer. So that part of the Trimmer Trap should be mounted on the Drivers side (Street Side) of the front of your trailer.

    If it isn't a TrimmerTrap, then nevermind.

    We posted at the same time!

    The TrimmerTrap mounts look to be TOO close together. I'd seperate them a bit more if I were you.

    They are trimmer traps. They are mounted rather close together. The one that you see on the left could of been moved a few inches over, but there is a bracket underneath the trailer holding the wiring, then a over a little furthur is the emergency brake-away controller (also I don't have to reach as far over the tongue to take the trimmers off). They are monted so that I can pull off the trimmers from the outside of the trailer.

    As far as the gate leaning a little bit and your suggestion about coping it from the main gate, I did that exactly. I was not sure why the main gate sloped a little bit, but I went ahead and copied it. Look at the pic.

    Thanks, but you should see to the right of those trimmer traps.....it's super messy. Not really messy, but just have all my mowers jam-packed together. Tomorrow I plan on getting that trailer out of there so that I can clean up a bit.
