Gator Power Gate, Evolution of an Invention

The Gator Power Gate has gone through many transformations since its early beginnings in John Curry's shop.  Let's take a look at how this innovative gate opener has evolved over years of design and testing.
Gator Power Gate
John started with a simple observation: whenever people open a gate or door, we naturally push or slide from the free edge, not the hinged side.  Opening a gate from its hinges, as traditional gate openers do, is much less efficient.  With the training of a NASA engineer and the practicality of a blueberry farmer, John took this concept to his shop and set out to build his own automatic gate opener.

The first Gator was a single-wheeled unit that used a bike chain and electric motor to drive the wheel in opening and closing his gate.
Gator Power Gate
While developing this prototype, one of John's main challenges was to produce a unit that could handle the varying terrain conditions on his farm, including sand, gravel, and tree roots.  His solution was a purpose-engineered mounting plate suspension system which allows the Gator to easily tackle uneven pavement or terrain.  
Gator Power Gate
Finding that one wheel could bog down in sand or gravel, John increased the traction and stability by using a dual-wheel approach.

A 10 watt solar panel provided more than enough power to keep the Gator going.


Gator Power Gate

By 2006, the Gator had already come a long way.  John's innovations were awarded a United States Utility Patent, and several of his neighbors were putting the Gator Power Gate through the paces on their own farms and estates.  However, John was not nearly done yet.  

Gator Power Gate

Over the years, he continued to refine and improve on his earlier models, making the unit more compact, weatherproof, and durable.  He gave the Gator a powerful new motor, re-designed the drive train (goodbye, bike chain!) and made the unit easily compatible with slide gate applications. 

Gator Power Gate
With each improvement, the Gator Power Gate became better and better.  But let's be honest...it wasn't winning any beauty contests!
Gator Power Gate
With a new fiberglass cover and a forest green paint job, the Gator started to gain some curb appeal! 
As you can see, a lot has gone into making the Gator Power Gate an effective, convenient, and reliable gate opening solution.  This Gator is farm-raised, field-tested, and ready to impress!

AFA FenceTech Success!

We sure had a great time at our first AFA FenceTech show in Orlando, Florida. The response we received from fence installers was overwhelming! We are very close to offering a great new solution to the automatic gate opener industry.
John Curry, Patti Alexander, Dave Alexander, Bob Curry
We were privileged to have John Curry, 89 years young, join us on Thursday at the show where he met guests and shared old war stories and the creation of the Gator Power Gate.

At the Orange Convention Center in Orlando we had to get a picture with their alligator statue. ;)

Sneak Peak of the Gator Power Gate from our manufacturer in China.

We still have a few engineering adjustments to make before we start production. However, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel! We thank you for your patience.

Gator Power Gates at FenceTech Show in Orlando, 2015

Register and come see us at the FenceTech Show in Orlando, Florida. Come out at the launch of the Innovative Gator Power Gate that was invented by John Curry. John Curry was a WWII fighter pilot and later a lead engineer on the Apollo S1B rocket is where he learned his ingenuity in design.


John Curry
John now works his blueberry farm where he needed easy passage trough his gates. Investigating what was available he learned that all swing gate automatic openers had a major engineering flaw... all swing gate openers open and close the gate with an arm attached to the least leveraged side of the gate.This causes over time extra stress on these devices as gates receive ware and tare over time.

Introducing the Gator Power Gate. The only automatic gate opener that attaches to the cantilever side of the gate providing maximum leverage to opening and closing a gate.

Their hasn't been a real change in automatic gate openers in years until now. Operating on a 12v battery with 10 watt solar panel is an "all in one" robot that easily attaches to any gate. The Gator Gate will be glade to open and close your gate for you each time you enter or exit.

Feel free to register to the FenceTech show on link provided. Thanks so much.
