The 3" Black Tension Band is an essential part in assembling chain link fence panels. Used in conjunction with tension tension bars (sold separately), this curved piece of material stretches chain link fabric to provide the tautness needed for a sturdy barrier. To attach to a terminal post (gate posts, end posts, corner posts), slide the tension band over and down the post. Space apart the bands evenly and secure in place with carriage bolts (sold separately). Once all the tension bands on an individual terminal post are secured in place, slide a tension bar (sold separately) vertically and downward through each band as well as the end "knuckles" of the chain link fabric.

This tension band features black vinyl coating for extra aesthetic appeal.

Example: 4' post height requires 3 tension bands. 

  • Used for black fencing
  • For use with 3" post

*Does Not Include Nut and Bolt

How the part fits? 3”square tension band is designed to fit around a 3” square terminal post.

Where is it installed? 3” square tension band is installed by sliding over the 3” square terminal post once the post is set. Tension bands will be evenly placed on each terminal post.

How many do you need? You will need 3” tension bands for every stretch of fence. The amount of tension bands you will need per square terminal post is 1 less than the height of the fence. For example, if you have a 4’ fence you will need (3) 3” square tension bands per terminal post. There are two exceptions, if you have a 3’ or 3-1/2’ fence, you will need (3) 3” square tension bands. For a full stretch of fence from terminal post to terminal post, you will need double the amount. Ex: For a stretch 4’ fence you will need (6) total 3” square tension bands.
