Question: Mike wanted to know the following: on the Apollo APL-1724 can it push the gate to open it rather than pull to open. With it inside the fence.
Answer: As a matter of fact you can use the 1724 easily with a ‘push to open’ set up. You wouldn’t even have to purchase extra brackets because the ones that come with it will work just fine. To push a gate opening outward all you need to do is install the bracket angled outward from the post, that will give you distance necessary to open the gate a full 90 degrees to the outside of the property.
