Place a level against the side of the hinge post facing the gate opening. When the level indicates that this side is vertical, attach the fence rails to the hinge post with galvanized deck screws. Remove the prop under the fence section.

TIP: A wooden wedge cut from a piece of old fence post makes a useful prop when leveling gates and fence sections.
