Currently ANYONE can buy a kit to transform a regular manual gate into a potentially dangerous machine. Unsurprisingly, 96% of the Gate Safe installer community believe that such kits should not be readily available direct to consumers.

Consumers will always seek out what they perceive to be a ‘bargain price’. As installers, it falls to us to explain that skilled and professional expertise comes at a cost … but in the long run, ‘getting the job done’ by a suitably qualified installer is worth every penny and what price can you put on safety? Those that choose to go the DIY route may find themselves facing higher costs than anticipated, with a gate no competent gate installer will agree to ‘fix’. Leaving them with an unsafe installation that is capable of endangering the very people – and their friends and family – that it was intended to protect.

Join our campaign to restrict the sales of automated gate kits to members of the public. Sign the petition on change.org
