Entrance and driveway gates come in every shape and size, and Ghost Controls® automatic gate openers will reliably meet your entrance's criteria. These types of security gates will naturally swing in a certain direction in order to open. Gates that swing in towards your property when opening are called "pull-to-open" gates, and those that swing outward are called "push to open" gates.

The most common type of swing gate is the pull to open gate on most properties. However, many gate owners whose driveways are on a sharp incline or have other reasons may opt for installing a push to open gate instead. Additionally, you may need a single gate opener or a dual gate opener depending on your gate's build.

For your push to open swing gate opener needs, the solution to installing a working system is more simple than you may think. Your best option for automating your single gate is the Ghost Controls® TSS1 Heavy Duty Single Automatic Gate Opener Kit. This kit comes with our AXPO Push-To-Open Brackets, which give you added leverage for easy installation on your gate. 

This gate operator has the capability to open and close your single tube gate while handling gate lengths of around 6 to 20 feet. Each operator arm is equipped for moving a considerable amount of weight so that your gate will keep operating, no matter the load.

When installing your gate opener, you should still mount the unit on the inside of your gate. Programming the open and closed positions will require you to extend your electric gate opener's arm to open the gate in a longer position. For your gate opener to achieve this reliably with the adequate length and power, you will need more leverage when extending to the open position.

Utilizing the push to open brackets when mounting your automatic gate opener will extend the length of the brackets from your gate post. This will give your opening mechanism a better angle to extend when operating your gate, and installation is simple. When paired with the TSS1 Single Automatic Gate Opener Kit, you'll have the perfect combination for your push to open single tube gate.
