Adding vinyl fence gate to a vinyl fence completes the look of your property and clearly closes areas of intruders or bugs. During the installation of the door is a simple process, you will have to take your time to secure a long-lasting door that will not rub the fence posts or hang at an angle. Once you have put the vinyl door, you can enjoy the maintenance-free aspects of vinyl doors, which do not require painting and will not rot.
Measure the distance between the two fence posts where the door will be installed. Buy vinyl fence gate that is 1 1/4 inches less wide than the distance measured between the posts. Keep the door between the fence posts with the vertical stakes on the same side, as they are on the fence. Adjust the bottom edge of the door to run with the bottom of the fence, and position the door between the posts with a gap of five-eighths of an inch on each side.

Make the level of the vinyl fence gate, and have someone hold it in place. Align each of the hinged door on the upper and lower horizontal rear rails of the door. Place the longest, narrowest side of the hinge over the fence, with the shorter, wider side against the fence posts. Mark the position of the pre-drilled holes in the rear door hinges both handrails and over the fence posts. Remove the hinges, and position your door latch on the opposite side of the door at a convenient height. Mark the previously drilled holes from the latch door on the door post and fence when necessary.
