  • Galvanized steel construction
  • Use on 42" fencing
  • Keeps fabric secure

How the part fits? A 42" tension bar is actually 40” in length. It is designed to fit through the last weave of the chain link fabric at the point of termination.

Where is it installedA tension bar is installed at every point where you terminate your chain link fence. 

How many do you need? You will need (1) 42” tension bar at every corner, end, and gate post. For every stretch of fence, you will need (2) total.

Once you have installed your post, framework and top rail, you will take the end of the chain link fabric and place it up to the terminal post. Start at the top of the chain link fabric and insert the tension bar down through the bands and the weave of the chain link until you get to the bottom. You will then tighten all the tension and end bands to hold the tension bar in place.
