Hello sdowell and thank you for joining our How-to Community.



With chain link you've got two different sizes of posts ,there's 2-3/8 which is for corners/end posts, and 1-5/8 which is for the line posts.


Start by installing the corner posts first.

Once installed use a 10' top rail to determine the position of the line posts and install.


Posts should be installed with concrete bellow the frost line- if applicable in your area.


Once the corners, line posts and top rails are installed fabric is stretched, starting from the one of the end posts, using the come along tool.


There are number of accessories you’d use to secure the fabric, gates and rails - we have a tear off sheets in the stores showing the proper installation of all the accessories we sell.


Hope this helps and please do not hesitate to post back with any additional question you may have.
