Hi,

I have recently replaced the gatepost and gate etc.
75x75 post next to a wall
I was recommended to use these
Thunderbolt Hex Head Passivated Zinc/Yellow 10mm (M10) x 150mm
http://www.alsfordtimber.com/tools-fixi ... -8372.html
and to use a 10mm drill
anyway, they all bolted back into the wall OK
and I had a bigger hole in the timber so the timber part was about 50mm ish

now they have just pulled out the wall icon_sad.gif

height of post about 2.1m
4 bolts used

so how do i fix this now icon_sad.gif

use something like this
http://www.screwfix.com/p/fischer-fsa-s ... f-20/66010

Or some form of plug around the existing bolt, paper

I have a wall now with 4 x 10mm holes - maybe slightly bigger
Post 75x75 - drilled 11/12mm for the bolt to go through
Sunk into the post by about 25/30mm

The gate 1900mm high by 780mm wide is hanging off this post

thanks in advance for any suggestions

Resin anchors.



Wins where everything else fails generally....

I agree with Hitch - no other sensible option.

Take the gate off, remove the post completely, knock the bolts back level with the wood, squirt the resin anchor into the holes - don't use too much, there isn't a lot of room in that hole - and make sure you read the instructions on the resin anchor tube - don't hang about, resin anchor can go off quite quickly, position the post back in place and whack the bolts back in with a hammer, using a drift if your hammer head is too big to get them fully home. Have a cup of tea, hang the gate back.

Good luck.

The likes of Screwfix etc. will be much cheaper(half the price!) than most of the DIY stores. Ie. Screwfix resin tube that fits in a standard skeleton gun about £ , Wickes about £11(and that was on special!!)
