Howie’s Tips

  1. Cut one kit of FLEX•fence rails into 2 sections each measuring 22″ (Make the first cut 3″ from 1st pre-punched hole).
  2. When sizing FLEX•fence always cut the rails and operating bar with hand tools and never with power tools.
  3. When attaching the FLEX•fence brackets onto the rails allow for the brackets to move freely (swivel). Do not over tighten!
  4. Always wear protective goggles.
