This 3” Steel Tension Band is designed to connect to a tension bar to tighten the chain link fabric (or mesh) from fence post to post. This corrosion resistant band may also be used for gate frames.

  • Fits 3” size posts 
  • Galvanized, corrosion resistant
  • Does not include a Carriage Bolt & Nut, Part #11170.

How the part fits? 3” tension band is designed to fit around a 3” terminal post.

Where is it installed? 3” tension band is installed by sliding over the 3” terminal post once the post is set. Tension bands will be evenly placed on each terminal post.

How many do you need? You will need multiple tension bands for every stretch of fence. You will need one less tension band than the height of the fence, with a minimum of three tension bands. For example, if you have a 4’ fence you will need three, 3” square tension bands per terminal post. For a full stretch of fence, from terminal post to terminal post, you will need double the amount. (e.g., for a 4’ stretch of fence you will need six total 3” square tension bands)

3" post size outside diameter; .16lbs.

A 3” square tension band is installed by sliding it over the 3” terminal post once the post is set. You will need to space the 3” tension bands evenly on the terminal post. Then you will slide the 5/16” x 1-1/4” bolt through the tangs and tighten the nut around the tension bar.
