The Fleur-de-lis shape on top of iron rod of the gate broke off during tree trimming about 3 yrs back. I have been attaching it every year or so with J+B weld. However, it seems fall off after sometime. Is there a more permanent way to fix it? Or, do need to find a welder etc..

    How about a picture so we can see what you see.

    If you can remove the gate and take to local garage or welder, then cost should be quite low. Much less than if they need to come to you

  • When you post the picture show the bottom of the shape where it connects with the gate, please.

You've practically answered your own question. Yes, there is a more permanent way to fix it - actual welding, not an epoxy product with "weld" misleadingly in its name and a bunch of implausible miraculous claims elsewhere on the package. Brazing would probably also work fine. and might be preferable if the decoration is cast iron, rather than actual wrought iron.
