Wire Ties #17 9-1/2" x 9 ga (Bag of 100)
The American Fence Company
- FOR CHAIN LINK FENCES: These wire ties are a key component for completing the installation of chain link fencing. Use these ties to close off loose points between the mesh and the adjacent rails and line posts.
- EASY TO INSTALL: Use the pre-fabricated hooked end to grip a knuckle in the chain link closest to the rail or post you wish to attach it to. Wrap the tie’s tail around the post/rail and coil the remainder around a wire in the mesh.
- RESISTANT TO RUST: Fashioned from aluminum, these wire ties are incredibly rust-resistant, which contributes to the longevity of your fence.
- 100 TIES: One bag.
When you’re nearly done installing your chain link fence—when your posts are set and your mesh stretched taut between tension bars and tension bands—one of the remaining steps is using wire ties to close off loose points. This is a fundamental step because gaps, no matter how small they may seem, allow windows for intrusion either by animals or humans. To close off these weak points, take a wire tie and use its pre-fabricated hooked end to grip an edge in the mesh—specifically, the edge closest to the rail or post you want to attach it to. Now, wrap the tail of the tie around the post/rail. You’ll have a few inches of tie left over; coil this around a wire in the mesh. Each is fabricated from aluminum for rust resistance. For 3” fence posts.
How the part fits? The 9-1/2” wire ties are designed to go around line posts and over top rail.
Where is it installed? The 9-1/2” 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.
Fits 3" post.
The tie is design to hook the first knuckle of the chain link and bend the hook end past rest of the tie.
