Black tension band 2-1/2". Used to hold fence to the post. Also available in brown, green and galvanized. 

Tension bands are used to keep the chain link fabric tight and secure by attaching the tension bar to the fence post. You should have one less band per height footage.

Example: 4' post height requires 3 tension bands. 

  • Used for black fencing
  • For use with 2-1/2" post

*Does Not Include Nut and Bolt

How the part fits? 2-1/2” tension band is designed to fit around a 2-1/2” terminal post.


Where is it installed? 2-1/2” tension band is installed by sliding over the 2-1/2” 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 2-1/2” tension bands for every stretch of fence. The amount of tension bands you will need per terminal post is 1 less than the height of the fence. For example, if you have a 4’ fence you will need (3) 2-1/2” Tension Bands per terminal post. There are two exceptions, if you have a 3’ or 3-1/2’ fence, you will need (3) 2-1/2” 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 2-1/2” tension bands.

A 2-1/2” tension band is installed by sliding it over the 2-1/2” terminal post once the post is set. You will need to space the 2-1/2” tension bands evenly on the terminal post. Then you will slide the 5/16” x 1-1/4” bolt through the tangs and tighten the nut.
