3 year warranty on this gate kit

This kit has 3 year limited warranty, the first year being with GateMotors, the remaining years being direct with the manufacturer. The motors themselves have a 3 year limited warranty all other electrical items have a 1 year warranty, see the warranty FAQ page for more details.

Looking for the single gate Kit MyHook, then view our range of single swing gate openers.

The GateMotors Kit MyHook articulated arm kits are quick and easy to install and ideal for DIY installation or gates installed between brick or stone pillars with leaves up to two metres each, especially where the GateMotors Kit MyAster or Kit Diamond can’t be fitted.

It can be fitted to gates that open either outward or inward without the need for special modification.

Opening angles of up-to 130° may be achieved dependent on gate hinge position. The operators are non-reversible and therefore don’t need the inconvenience or expense of an additional electric lock to keep them closed.

Suitable for big dimensioned pillars with maximum distance between the hinges' axis and the gate's corner of 30 cm; gate openings up to 4m (2m per leaf) and up to 250Kg per leaf. This will give you opening angles up-to 130° if installation instructions are followed.

Easy installation, with adjustable accessories and brackets. Incorporated release key. Pivoted arm transmission adjustable and anti-shearing safety. The perfect integration of its components ensures the greatest quietness.

It is designed for intensive use by using a die-casting structure made of quality aluminium, stainless steel, bronze and steel. The fluid-grease lubrication system and the built-in thermal protection ensure a long-lasting working life in any weather conditions without the need for periodic maintenance.

The aerial within the kit is pre-installed and has a range of approx 30m.

Simply Installation

These diagrams show the gates closed and the operators fixed to the inside edge of each pillar (inside the property). The plan view diagrams below show the operator and gate closed and open. The dimension A, between the pillar mounting face of the operator and the centre line of the gate, can be up to 300mm. Dimension B is recommended to be 30mm.

Simply Diagram

Installation Hint:

When fitting the gate brackets to a wooden gate, we recommend that you insert stainless steel tubing (just large enough to sleeve the mounting bolt threads, and 1mm shorter than the thickness of the wood) through the gate mounting holes.

This will prevent over-tightening of the mounting bolts, and also avoid the repetitive push-pull on the mounting bolts from damaging the wood.

If you only have a single gate and you are not sure if you need a right-hand or left-hand kit?

The motor is usually mounted on the inside of the property for security; so view the gates from inside the property looking outwards (the gates will normally, but not always, swing toward you).

If the hinge appears on the left, you need a left-hand kit; if it's on the right you need a right-hand kit.

For more information on the electrical cabling requirements for this system please see our electric gate cabling guide.


Please note: the remotes that you receive with this kit may be a different colour to what's shown in the image.


Kit MyHook optional upgrades and accessories include:

    * gate stops (all of our gate motors require some form of resistance at the end of the opening & closing phase.)
    * underground exit loop (detects the presence of a vehicle and automatically opens the gate)
    * extra photocells
    * additional key fobs
    * intercom kit
    * extended range (external) aerial

Please Note: It is solely the responsibility of the recipient or the client / specifier – to ensure that the products described are suitable for purpose (see fitting guide under downloads) & comply with the relevant building regulations.

The fixings & fittings supplied with this kit include the brackets and the fixings for mounting the motor onto the bracket, we do not however include the fixings to mount the bracket onto the post as this will vary from one installation to another and you may even be welding the bracket to the post.
