How to Connect Chain Link Mesh

Hello everyone, we are the Fenceshop team, and today we will guide you through the process of joining two pieces of chain link mesh. This tutorial is intended for those who need to join the end of one roll with the start of another or cut the mesh to complete a fence. We will show you step by step how to do it and give you some tips to avoid problems. Let's get started!

Preparing the Mesh

First of all, it is important to hold the mesh in a temporary position. Use the long tips of the mesh, which should always be on top, to attach it temporarily. The short tips, on the other hand, should be at the bottom. This allows you to manipulate the mesh easily with your fingers.

Chain Link Mesh: Even and Odd

The secret to a proper join is to have an even mesh on one side and an odd mesh on the other. Chain link meshes are made up of diamonds formed by two meshes, one on the left and one on the right. You need to ensure that one side of the mesh ends with a complete diamond (even) and the other with half a diamond (odd). Inside the rolls of mesh, you will usually find an extra mesh for this purpose. If it is not present, you can disassemble two meshes to create a spare one.

Threading the Mesh

Position the extra mesh with the long tip on top and the short tip at the bottom. Bring the two edges of the mesh together, which must be loose and not under tension. Start threading the extra mesh into the first diamond like a corkscrew, turning it until it runs all the way down. Align the meshes and close the temporary hooks with your fingers to secure the mesh.

Final Fixing

Once the join is complete, also close the hooks at the bottom of the mesh to prevent it from unraveling. If you need to separate the mesh again, just open the hooks with your fingers and unscrew the mesh in the opposite direction.

Tricks of the Trade

If the wire of the mesh tends to tighten too much, making insertion difficult, slightly widen the last piece of wire with your fingers to facilitate the operation. This trick will allow you to better embrace the two edges of the mesh.

Working Horizontally

For convenience, you can also work with the mesh laid out flat on the ground. Lay the mesh on a flat surface, bring the two edges together, and proceed with the join as described. Once completed, you can lift the mesh and attach it to the top tension wire.
