Getting Started

 

Don't Guess...

   
 

Do you know the diamond width or height of your existing fence? To learn tips on measuring your fence, continue below.

 

 

  1. Before ordering
   
  -measure your fence to assure you will receive the proper size for your fence.
  If you order the wrong size, you will be left with incorrect slats.
   
  NOTE: WE WILL NOT TAKE BACK AN ORDER FOR LACK OF MEASURING.
   
 

Below are some helpful tips on determining the proper privacy slat for your fence.

     
   

Determining the Correct Measurements for your Fence

     
     

To determine slat width measure the diamond size, example is a 2" diamond. Measure from the inside to inside of the diamond. Common sizes are 2", and 2 1/4". Lite Link and Hedgelink will fit both.

Note: With Top and bottom locking slats you will need to specify your slat width size when ordering.

       
     

To determine proper height measure from the tip of the bottom knuckle to the top tip of the top knuckle. Example fence is 4' Height.

Common heights: 36", 42", 48", 60", 72", 84",96", 108",120",144"

Note: We only stock 48", 60",and 72" all others are a special order.

 

 

  2. Ordering:
   
  -After measuring your diamond height and width, make sure to note the total linear feet of chain link fence that you are looking to cover in your project.
  All our slats cover ten linear feet in a single package.
   
  3. Installation:
  Below are instructions on how to install the slats into your chain link fence.
   
 

Slat Installation Instructions

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Insert the bottom track, make sure to insert it into the top half of the first diamond.

Note: Top Locking slats will have a locking slat at the top of fence and slats will run through locking channel.

       
     

Step 2: Insert slats from the top down to the bottom locking track and lock them in. They should slide in easily, but locking them in is a little tricky. A pair of pliers is helpful but not necessary.

Note: Make sure you slide the notched end of the slat down first.

       
     

Step 3: The slats should be straight with the top rail. The gates are usually shorter than the fence, to get the right height you will need to cut the slats down. Scissors will do the job.

Note: You can mix the colors to give your fence a different look. Example is done with dark brown and beige.

   
 

Additional Notes

   
     

Ez/Ridged, Bottom Link, and the Top Locking Slats come with a "locking track."

Note: When you receive your order go thru each package to make sure that the locking track was included. You should have two or three pieces that equal 10 feet when laid out end to end.

(Note: All slats install in the same process, but may differ with locking or self-locking systems. The EZ/Ridged slat in the video have a bottom-locking track that is inserted first. Self-locking slats do not have a bottom-locking track.
