How to new Fix Wood Gate to Existing Iron Gate

Postby howardino » Mon Jan 04, 2016 11:02 am


I'm struggling to find out what type of screws or the best method of fixing a wooden gate to an existing iron gate frame.

Currently we have an iron gate (garden side gate), to make it less easy to climb over, I'd like to put a wooden gate on the front of it (just one you get ready made from wickes/homebase).

From what I can gather on the internet, do I need a self-tapping screw? and do these need any special drills/driver bits - I currently own just a standard drill.

Thank you for your help.
