The 1-3/8" Black Aluminum Rail End is used in combination with end bands (sold separately) to attach top rail, middle rail, and bottom rails to terminal posts when constructing black vinyl chain link fence panels. Simply slip it onto the end of a railing until it's snug in place. Once you've installed an end band to your terminal post, position the rail end so that the circular hole in its tip rests between the end band's tangs. Use a carriage nut and bolt (sold separately) to secure the two pieces together. Now your railing is firmly attached to the terminal post.
This 1-5/8" Black Aluminum Rail End has been fabricated from rust resistant materials, which adds to the longevity of your fence. Resistance to corrosion means your fence won't rust from exposure to morning dew or precipitation. Its pristine coating matches the elegant aesthetic of a black vinyl chain link fence.
How the part fits? The rail end is part of the connection of the top rail to the terminal post.
Where is it installed? Rail ends are installed on the end of the top rail. The top rail slides into the rail end, which connects to the end band attached to the terminal post using a nut/bolt (not included).
How many do you need?For every stretch of chain link fence, from terminal post to terminal post, you will need two rail ends.
