Supplies and Tools:

Diagonal cutters
Trash can

Every five years Mrs Baker's association recommends that the iron work around her home needs to be freshened up. For example metal gates, any metal ornaments that would be the responsibility of the association. Anything that was attached to the building would be painted by professional painters. It was the owner's responsibility to clean these metal gates of dirt, bird droppings and anything else that might make it difficult for the painters to do their work. A cleaning charge would be given to each homeowner who disregarded the association warning. Mrs Baker called my repair service to take care of her gate.

This post shows the six steps of removing the pet fence from the iron gate.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows metal gate had a plastic fence to keep an animal inside, long not used. The prior installer used white electrical ties to hold the plastic fencing on the metal gate.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows diagonal cutters used to cut the electrical ties from the gate.
