  1. 👍 🙌 Hallelujah. What a wonderful idea. 😁 Sometimes I don't know what is needed for finding a solution for a certain problem 😂 Thank you for the video 💐 Efrat Israel.🍍

  2. No, the Simpson bracket DOES have a threaded hole for the 'cross bolt' which holds the bolt tight like a locking washer. The tighter you make it the less 'aligned' the two holes become which is what holds that bolt secure from ever loosening by itself. Wood fence panels will always sag over time and that sagging pulls the bracket in opposite directions which should only make that bolt become TIGHTER over time. These brackets are designed to never slip or loosen to the metal post once secured. The lag screws attaching the brackets to the fence panels may/can loosen over time just due to weathering and when the fence is subjected to strong winds (or a dog jumping against it for example). The lag screws come a little loose over time but not much.

  3. In my opinion the weight of the fence is not on the screws but rather the bracket around the post. The simpson bracket hugs the post tightly with multiple points of contact. The other does same with less points of contact. To me the best option would be the 2nd bracket with galvanized bolt going THROUGH the post with not on opposite side. Now the weight of fence would be on the bolt.

  4. I saw this video a while back when researching my fence project. I found a similar product at my local Lowes store. I bought them and after using some of them I am not as fond of them. They are adjustable which would help those building on a slope. Instructions defy logic and tell you to install the shelf part of the bracket on the top of the board, That throws out the extra support feature I was looking for. Also, the bracket bolts together with 2 carriage bolts. the round head of the bolt causes the board to not fit flush and cause it to turn when tightening.

    My advise is look for the type in the video that is non adjustable and purchase online. A couple of people have posted different links where they can be bought.

  5. I am buying a house that has a 4 foot chain link fence. We do not want to spend lots of money. We just want to block the view to help keep our dogs from barking every time they see neighbors or mail man, etc.

  6. How tall is the fence? I am trying to build a 6ft privacy fence. Would these brackets work with the just to brackets per post?

  7. It's a fence it needs to be solid. I can't grasp why Americans and Canadians use bloody screws, out a small coach bolt through instead

  8. All the weight of the fence rests on that one tiny pinch bolt. I can see one kid climbing the fence, and the whole fence slides down until it hits the soil. It would be strong if there were two side bolts that went INTO a hole on the vertical posts. That is the weak link and the fail point. I’d prefer the first fastener because of that

  9. Thank you! This video made it possible for me to attach a privacy fence to my existing 4' chain link for way less money than I was anticipating! I thought I would have to dig up the old posts (circa. 1950) but once I started, I realized my existing posts were put in with the intention of staying there forever! I know It's been over three years since you posted this video but believe me my friend. You opened my eyes to the world of fence brackets in such a way that I can only say, from the bottom of my heart and the hearts of my boys that helped me and wife, that loved the savings!!!! Thank you for posting this Revolution Fence!!! You saved me a hurt load of time and money just by showing me the sweet proficiency of practical bracketry! Peace to you -Jeff & Family!!!

  10. Helpful tip: The second bracket shows 3 DRYWALL screws on each side. Use proper exterior-rated screws – especially if you are going the distance to install a proper bracket. Just a helpful tip guys!

  11. I have to agree with a few others.  I always appreciate good tutorial or knowledge building videos, but presenting this as a PRO fence builder video, novices are watching closely.  Why on earth would you use weak, NON-SUITABLE, common drywall screws?  Especially when emphasizing how durable the brackets are!  Not only are these going to break easily, but also leave the stain streaks.  Isn't that like in the top three biggest DON'TS?  Nice video otherwise.

  12. In your second example, you mentioned the pinch bolt screws directly into the post. Would that scratch the galvanized layer of the post? I get a lot of wind and water where I am so I am afraid of the galvanized layer getting scratched and rusting.
