Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble, Don. Does the gate slide freely when the chain is removed, or is there much resistance?Have you checked the limit switches?
