A corner post can be added anywhere in your Fence construction project simply by inverting the end bracket, (upside down), and then stacking it on top of another end bracket on the 90 degree side providing a nice level stringer seat for both fence sections.

A T-post can be added anywhere in your Fence construction project simply by inverting the end bracket, (upside down), and then stacking it on top of another 180 bracket on the 90 degree side providing a nice level stringer seat for all three fence sections.

An X-post can be added anywhere in your Fence construction project simply by inverting the 180 bracket, (upside down), and then stacking it on top of another 180 bracket on the opposite sides providing a nice level stringer seat for all four fence sections.

If by chance there are obstructions that are unmovable while digging your fence posts you can shorten the 8-foot span to 7 foot or even 6 foot. Both stringers can be cut with a metal bladed reciprocating saw, hacksaw, or metal circular saw, and then attached to the fence posts as described in the instructions.

Once the shorter section has been installed you can then return back to 8 foot post centers as much as possible. 8 ‘ long is the length the fence was engineered to be and as such is the most economical in terms of installation.

Because the Stringers have square bracket holes punched along the top of the length of the stringer, you are able to cut the stringer into any length as required.

If there is a requirement to cut stringers or posts, this can be accomplished with a metal bladed reciprocating saw, hacksaw, or metal circular saw. After the cut, the sharp edges along the Burr of the cut must be sanded and then apply a small amount of black aluminum paint to the bare metal.

All of the Metal components of the Tahoe Slip Fence have been Powder coated to protect the Aluminum from decay, discoloration and corrosion.

The manufacturer provides a 10-year warranty against peeling, flaking and weather wear. See warrantee section on the TAHOE Slip fence website for more details.

Hills: If you run into hills in the ground where you have your Tahoe Slipfence being installed you are actually able to climb the stringers by approximately 30 degrees and still have the fence boards inserted level. This equals approximately 20” climb from one fence post to the next. If there is a drastic increase or hill in the property by more than 20” in a span of your 8-foot fence section then you may need to shorten the fence sections to 6’ or perhaps even 4’ to accommodate such a climb in the ground level.

Valleys: If you run into dips in the ground where you have your Tahoe Slipfence being installed you are actually able to drop the stringers by approximately 30 degrees and still have the fence boards inserted level. This equals approximately 20” drop from one fence post to the next.. If there is a drastic drop by more than 20” in a span of your 8-foot fence section then you may need to shorten the fence sections to 6’ or perhaps even 4’ to accommodate such a drop in the ground level.

Uneven and non-level ground is commonplace for fence installation and to accommodate this the board-holes in the stringers have been specifically cut to be approximately a half of an inch wider than the standard fence-board to allow the stringers to be off plumb while maintaining level fence boards.

If there is a need to bend your Tahoe Slipfence this can be done by allowing the stringer to sit approximately one half inch from the Post instead of right up against it and slide the Carriage bolt which connects the stringer to the bracket out towards the end of the oval hole in the bracket. This creates somewhat of a hinge and you are able turn the stringers up to 30- degrees from straight. If you require more than a 30 Degree bend in your fence project then you will need to shorten the sections to 6-foot, 4-foot or even 2-foot to make a sharp bend.
