General Fence Installation Information

All #8 screws require a 1/8" pilot hole.

All hinge, latch and end posts require 2 pieces of 1/2" rebar inserted in opposing corners of the post, fill with concrete to cover the rebar and gate hardware. Use rebar clips to separate rebar.

Tap outside of post with a rubber mallet to eliminate air pockets in concrete.

Concrete and rebar are not required in line and corner posts.

Use duct tape to seal ends of any rails inserted in a post that is to be filled with concrete and rebar (end & gate posts). This will prevent the mix from flowing along the rails. The weight of the concrete in the rail could cause it to sag and may block drain holes.

When cutting rails for short sections or gates, always measure from the center and trim both ends. This will give you even picket spacing. 
Remember, Measure twice, cut once.

When cutting rails for short sections or gates, always include 1/4" drainage holes.

When cutting rails for post and rail fence, always include 3/8" holes for locking ring.

Middle rails have larger holes routed in the underside for ease of installation. This will allow the fence to follow a sloping grade.

Always check local code requirements before installing a fence.

Bottom rails are steel reinforced, except for traditional picket fence.

Secure middle rails in position with (2) #8 1-1/2" screws, snap caps and washers space evenly along rail to avoid sag.
