How To Attach Fence
Fence installation is a breeze for some; but before beginning this DIY fence install project, individuals may be asking "How do you attach fence mesh to the line posts?" The answer is simple: zip ties - but not the ones found in big box stores.
There are two types of pet fence zip ties that should be used: An 8" self-locking tie or a 14" self-locking tie. The 8" zip ties are used around the fence posts to attach the fence mesh to each post whereas the 14" inch zip ties hold the fence mesh onto corners, ends and gates. The remnant zip tie can be cut off using a cutter-puller tool. This tool is also used to take off zip ties, if a homeowner is interested in taking down the fence and storing the fence roll indoors for the winter.
Fence installation tips: Use one zip tie per foot of fence post.
Fence Installation Tips
Dogs have been waiting for this moment ever since you decided to buy dog fencing. Do-it-yourself projects can be fun; but they can also be intimidating to start. Here are tips for fence installation.
Instead of measuring as you go, measure first then place ground sleeves near the measurement to get an idea of what the system outline will look like. After, begin digging holes to drop ground sleeves into the ground.
Ground sleeves (including posts) will be set every 15-20 feet apart. The fence installer can go every 10 feet, if needed; however if the fence mesh begins to droop, then tension wire will need to be applied to give the fence a more polished look.
It will be easier to handle the mesh if left in rolls and rolled out from post to post. Do not roll it out first or it will be a mess.
We recommend using one self-locking tie every foot along the fence post.
Stake into the ground every five feet for best results. Fence stakes block attempts from dogs to lift up on the fence - easy access to escape.
