How to Install a Chain Link Fence | The Home Depot with @thisoldhouse


  1. She was in This Old House

  2. Can you just drive in your line post without using concrate?

  3. 24” deep even in states where it freezes or go down 43”???

  4. You guys sound like your doing this for bears like I am!! lol Upstate NY is home for me.

  5. I would have hinged the gate on the post that had the fabric on it. When you hang a gate on a single post, it tends to sag.

  6. Nice video but not a very detailed video. After doing a chain link fence and re-watching this video let’s me see how many steps are left out of not really explained

  7. Funny you show a black fence when home depo doesnt even sell a black one smh

  8. "Run the top rails through the holes" 😉 Hey tatted daddie, I see what you did there!

  9. "Until it's toat " you mean tight right?

  10. I love this old house. Such a great source of knowledge.

  11. How much concrete per terminal post ? Line post?

  12. oh man. I only did my post a 1 foot deep. Its just a 4 foot gate door to my trash area. Plan to do a concrete slab so post will be inside of that.

  13. What would the cost be to install one

  14. The video states to use a portable bandsaw to cut the tops of the line posts. That’s not a real common tool in the arsenal of many DIY homeowners. I think an angle grinder with a metal cut-off wheel or a sawzall with a bimetal blade could work as well. Kudos for keeping the video straight forward and simple.

  15. Thank you, Now I have a fence that can block off Karen's croutch goblins from my dogs
