How do I install the fittings for a Chain Link fence?

Using the two charts to identify the fittings, you will install the fittings accordingly:

  1. Slip the tension bands on with the flat side out.  Generally, there is one tension band per foot of fence.  Always start with your first band approximately 6” from the bottom of the fence, leaving room for end bands, etc. that will discussed later on.  Space the balance of your tension bands on evenly apart.
  2. Slip your end band on last, leaving it approximately 3” down from the top of your posts. 
  3. Place the rail end tab between the end band.  Cup side down per the detail.  If this is a corner post assembly, one rail end will be cup side up and the other rail end will be cup side down.  This will assure that the adjoining top rails are in alignment.
  4. Do not spread or distort the bands.  If you do, the bolt holes may not line-up later.  Install 5/16” x 1 ¼” nuts and bolts through the bands with the carriage head facing out.  Only hand-tighten at this time.
  5. Install the loop caps (figure 8) on top of the line posts, turned so that the top rail can slide down the fence line through the caps but with the flat side toward the outside of the fence.
