Good to Know

Check your local building codes or Home Owner's Association regulations before installing a fence.

Preparing Fence Layout

Fence layout.

Use the following steps to lay out your chain-link fence.

Good to Know

Before beginning any excavation, check for underground utilities.

Step 1

Locate your property's boundary lines. It's recommended that all  posts  be set approximately 4 inches inside the property line so that  concrete  footings don't encroach onto any adjoining property.

Step 2

Measure the overall length of your planned fence to determine how many   feet of chain-link fabric and top rail will be required (Fig. 1).

Step 3

Mark the location of each terminal post (corner, end and gateposts are   called terminal posts) with a stake. When determining the positions of   gateposts, remember that clearance for hinges, latches, etc., is   included in the listed opening width of the gate. Therefore, if you   ordered a gate for a 36-inch opening, the post spacing should be exactly   36 inches, inside post face to inside post face.

Fence Posts

Setting Terminal Posts

Step 1

Terminal posts for chain-link fence.

Dig the terminal postholes approximately 8 inches in diameter and 30 inches deep, with sloping sides (Fig. 2). The exact diameter and depth will be determined by local weather and soil conditions.

Step 2

With crayon or chalk, mark the ground line on the posts. The height, above level ground, of the terminal posts will equal the height of the fence fabric plus 2 inches.

Step 3

Center the terminal posts in the holes. Make sure the posts are plumb and set at the correct height. (Crayon mark should be at ground level.) Surround the posts with concrete in a continuous pour. Trowel finish around the posts and slope downward to direct water away.

Locating and Setting Line Posts

Adding Fittings to Terminal Posts

Installing Top Rails to Posts

Installing Tension Wire (Optional)

Tension wire.

Wrap the tension wire once around the bottom-rail end-band carriage   bolt. Using pliers, twist several times to secure (Fig. 12). Tension   wire should run along the same side of the posts as the fabric. Apply   tension wire clips no more than 24 inches apart or as needed for   securing the wire to the chain-link fabric.

Fence Fabric

Hanging Fence Fabric

Step 1

Fence fabric.

Starting at a terminal post, unroll the chain-link fabric on the ground   along the outside of the fence line to the next terminal post. Slide a   tension bar through the first row of chain-link diamonds. Fasten evenly   spaced tension bands (already on the post) to the tension bar fabric   combination using 5/16-inch-by-1-1/4-inch carriage bolts with heads to   the outside of the fence (Figs. 13 and 14).

Step 2

Walk along the fabric and stand it up against the fence frame, taking   out the slack as you go. Loosely attach the fabric to the top rail with a   few fence ties to hold it in place. Separate enough fabric from the   roll to span the opening between the terminal posts.

To remove excess fabric:

Remove  the excess fabric with pliers by opening the top and bottom   loops  (knuckles) of a single strand of wire at the desired point of   separation. Unwind the strand up through the links until the fabric   comes apart (Figs. 15 and 16).

To splice sections of fabric:

Splice  sections of the chain-link fabric together using a single   strand of  wire, removed from the end of the fabric. Join the two   sections by  winding the loose strand down, corkscrew style, through the  end links.  Join and tighten the knuckles at the top and the bottom to  secure.

NOTE: Before sections can be spliced, a second strand may have to be removed to provide a proper mesh.

Stretching Fence Fabric

Installing Fence Ties

Fence ties.

Fasten the fabric securely with fence ties spaced approximately 24 inches apart along the top rail and 12 inches apart on each line post (Fig 19). Finally, securely tighten the nuts on all rail end bands and tension bands.

Hanging the Gate

A similar installation procedure is used on both single-swing and double-swing gates (Figs. 20 and 21).

Step 1

Apply gatepost hinges to the gatepost approximately 8 inches from the   top and the bottom of the gatepost with the top-hinge pin pointing down   and the bottom-hinge pin pointing up. This will prevent the gate from   being removed or from dropping off. Tighten all bolts securely.

Step 2

Apply  gate frame hinges to the gate frame. Loosely fasten the bolts so  they  can be easily adjusted on the gate frame. Hang the gate(s) in  place so  that the bottom of the gate has approximately 2 inches of  ground  clearance. Tighten the bolts on the bottom frame hinge first,  and then  adjust and tighten the bolts securely at the top.

Step 3

Position the gate fork latch at a convenient height. Tighten all bolts securely.

NOTE: Adjust the latch assembly on the double-swing gate to the correct height and tighten all bolts securely (Fig. 21).
