"These metal clips really help to secure wooden fence panels quickly and effectively. No more screwing/nailing through the panel frame watching it split as you drive into the post. I use four clips for each panel - job done!"
"these work well so much better than the other types.
to those who say you need to lift the panels in place, you are doing it the hard way...
the easy way ....
fit the clips as normal with 2 exceptions: the top clips fasten to the post with only one screw in the top hole, thus allowing them to swivel. use 2 screws on bottom clips as normal
second the position, fit the clips closer to the top/bottom positions of the panels (say 6 inches from either)
now swivel the top clips towards you, slide the panel UP into these clips, swing back to the vertical (in line with the fence posts) and slide up as required until the bottom of the panels is above the lower clips, position and slide down.
Now fasten a screw through the clips into the panels ensuring it also goes right through into the wood lat on the other side.
Depending on the person, this can be done by one person, I managed to fit 6ft*6ft panels like this on my own.
Further, during storms/winds these hold the panel so much better then the other types which only fasten the panel by the lat on 1 side."
"A good way of fixing fence panels as long as you have headroom to drop them in from above. If you have obstructions such as a tree branch these are not suitable. Not as heavy duty as I had expected (I had some left over from years ago which were thicker metal), but adequate."
