gate hardware

Anyone know what, in inches, to allow extra between posts for gate hardware for a chain-link gate (double gate)?

It will vary depending on the hardware itself. On my gate (double, chain link) the opening is 6-1/2" wider than the dimensions of the gates themselves.

2" on each side for the hinges, plus 2-1/2 " in the midlle to allow free movement of tha latching mechanism.

After measuring the hardware on my double chainlink gates, that is almost exactly what I did. I think it will be perfect when I get the posts plumbed.

Tx for response anyway.
