Despite their simple appearances, top rail sleeves are actually essential fittings when building a chain link fence. As its name would suggest, the function of this tubular piece of steel is to join—"sleeve"—two separate pieces of top rail together. In addition to building a fence, this accessory is handy for improving the stability of existing fences. So, if you have a chain link fence hampered by broken, misshapen, or poorly installed top rails, this sleeve can be used to correct them.
This 1-3/8" Top Rail Sleeve is made of galvanized steel, which means it is especially rust resistant. You can weld this sleeve for additional strength and stability.
