A;- No. Juror - Regarding these gates, what would be in your opinion,- we will say these gates hung in the center of the span, chain is hung in the center, would they offer greater resistance than a hinge? A;- I cant say but I should imagine there woud be a greater resistance with theses chains. Q;- A;- I didn't take the measurement for the center of the draw to the end at all. Q;- It would safeguard these gates if held by posts, would it be greater than hung by chains? A;- I think the resistance would be more fairly distributed if hung by chains. There is less resistance with hinges than with chains.
