Theft proof farm gate

Posted by roscoe (My Page) on

Could anyone offer any tip's on how to prevent the tubular steel farm gates from being stolen. It's too easy for the thieves to loosen up a bolt or two and lift off the gate. Would any kind of welding prevent this? All ideas will be appreciated.

Point the hangers on the upper part downward so they can't just lift the gate off the hangers. Then on the nuts just tack a small weld on each one so they can't loosen them. As long as you make it difficult for them to remove they will go somewhere to steal one that is easier to remove.
