4" 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.
Installing this clamp is simple, as it's composed of two identically shaped parts. When put together, the two halves form a stubby T-shaped joint: the shorter upper "arms" and the slightly longer vertical "arm." Enclose the upper "arms" around the center of a piece of fence pipe, and insert the end of the second pipe into the lower "arm." Securing this end rail clamp requires a carriage bolt (sold separately). Before applying the bolt, inch the second fence pipe—the one held by the longer "arm"—downward until it rests just past the square-shaped hole in the clamp's center. Insert the carriage bolt through this hole and out the other side before tightening with a nut. This secures the two pieces of the clamp together and snugly holds the two railing pieces.
The 4" x 1-5/8" End Rail Clamp is extremely rust resistant, having been fabricated from galvanized steel. Rust resistance is a must for outdoor sports fencing, which is perpetually exposed to precipitation and dew.

How the part fits? The clamp consists of two galvanized steel pieces that sandwich two pieces of pipe in a T joint.
Where is it installed? End rail clamps can be used to secure a bottom rail or mid-rail to a chain link fence. Commonly you will see end rail clamps used on backstops, baseball field fencing, tennis court fencing, and outdoor dog kennels.
How many do you need? Each clamp consists of two pieces that together sandwich one T-joint. Typically you will need two clamps per post-to-post stretch of fence.
Fits 4" outside diameter post and 1-5/8" outside diameter rail; .88 lbs.
Placing one piece of the clamp on either side of the T-joint, secure the clamp in place using a nut/bolt (sold separately, Part 11174) for added strength and stability to your fencing project.
