After perusing the internets for design inspiration on this dog gate my sweet husband asked me to build for our new deck, I came across these cool hinges: lift off hinges. Clever buggers for sure!

I didn't need much for this project which was great. I cut some 2x2's down to size, glued and screwed those together to make a rectangle.

Once the frame was good to go, I painted it with some exterior white I had then measured out for the eye hook placement. Oh, super fab tip on my blog about how to get those in soooo fast and easy!

Next I tied off the paracord and wove it through all the eye hooks.

So awesome, right?!

I took the gate outside to attach the hinges. They were kinda small so I wanted to do this "on site" if you will so I wouldn't screw anything up.

And there we have it! And clearly it works keeping the monster pooch on the deck! It swings open, swings shut, locks with a hook and eye, and when we're done on the deck for the day, we pop it off and store it in the garage.

    My dog could chew/pull through that in 2 minutes.....and also beware of strangling.

    I think this is a great idea and as you said it is used for certain times. It looks like your dog is a good trained dog and only needs a small deterrent to stay put.
