Chainlink Height Extension

Has anyone extended the height of a chainlink fence, I have a customer who wants to go from 36 inch to a 48 inch fence, for the line posts I could use 1 1/2 inch conduit connector but I have not found anything to use for the terminal posts, I thought about inserting a line post into the terminal post and using the smaller diameter post (there are no gates), my other thought if I can persuade the customer is to go with welded wire attached to the existing chainlink or a lattice again attached to the fence, any ideas or suggestions.

I only ask because I want to know

Re: Chainlink Height Extension

If you have a chain link supplier besides lowes or hd go to them, tell them you want some Post Extenstion Sleeves. They do make them, the wholesale catalog I have in front of me has them in there, pretty cheap too. So if your extending the fence height thats the way to go. The other idea you had is bad, go with chain link they'll be happier.

Re: Chainlink Height Extension

what are you saving in an extension? almost everything will need to be replaced.

just pull it out and start new.
