Chain Link 1 5/8" Tension Band [14 Gauge] (Galvanized Steel)

The 1 5/8" Tension Band attaches chain link fabric to posts, frames, kennels and more to ensure a long-lasting connection for the chain link mesh, tension bar, and post or frame. As a rule of thumb, one less tension band than the overall height of the fence should be utilized (i.e. a 6' high fence uses 5 tension bands). This easy to install tension band has a high-quality, corrosion-resistant galvanized steel construction that features a standard 14 gauge ideal for residential applications.
