Many steps are involved in building a chain link fence, one of the most important being the actual attachment of chain link fabric to your fence posts and rails. After all, without the fabric—strong and sturdy—securely attached, a fence doesn't offer much in the way of protection.
These long lasting but bendable wire ties are ideal for connecting chain link fabric. Wrap them through the end knuckles of your fabric and around the top rails and line posts. Each tie is made of rust resistant aluminum and fashioned with a hooked end—which makes them long lasting and easier to install.
How the part fits? The 6-1/2” wire ties are designed to go around line posts and over top rail.
Where is it installed? The 6-1/2” wire tie is installed every 24” on the top rail, and for your line post you will have the height of your fence minus 1. For example: for a 4’ fence you will have 3 wire ties. The 3 ties will be evenly spaced out, the first one 6” from the bottom and the last one 6” from the top.
How many do you need? You will need one wire tie every 24” for the top rail, and height of your fence minus 1 for each line post.
