2-1/2" x 1-5/8" End Rail Clamp
The American Fence Company
An essential fitting in the construction of chain link fence panels, this end rail clamp is used to secure two pieces of fence pipe together in a T-shaped formation. It is a common installation piece for ballfield fencing, backstops, and dog kennels. The assembly process is simple, as this clamp is made of two identically shaped halves. The shorter “arm” closes around the fence pipe. Insert the very end of your rail through the longer “arm” to create a horizontal shaft.
Clamping everything securely together requires a carriage bolt (sold separately). Before applying the bolt, inch the second fence pipe—the horizontal rail—down until it sits just past the square-shaped bolt hole in the clamp’s center. Insert the carriage bolt through this hole and all the way through the other side. Now, use a nut to tighten the two clamp pieces—and the pipes they contain—together.
The 2-1/2” x 1-5/8” End Rail Clamp is made of galvanized steel for superior rust resistance. This means the clamp is resilient to rust caused by precipitation such as rain. This, in turn, contributes to your chain link fence’s longevity.
