Home Improvement Expert: Susan Latta, General Contractor replied 4 months ago

Who is the manufacturer of the gate? That's who you should call. That's too bad the contractor has made himself unavailable, but calling the manufacturer is the best option anyway. They may send someone out to look at it, or give you easy to follow instructions. These companies are always very helpful and I've always had great luck by just calling technical support at their headquarters.

If you have additional questions regarding this subject, please feel free to ask. Thank you for using Just Answer as your handy, go-to informational resource!
