Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wyo826 Nice touch
Received several boxes thinking I would try it out. After installing in the chain link, what a diff. You can still see though the fence some, but made a nice privacy fence after all. Easy to install, quality of material ? only time will really tell. Far better than the other stuff offered. Buy again ? Sure will ! Looks nice, gives your fence a nice clean look and some privacy. You will be happy with this product ...

I'd never written a review, until now; but this product is deserving of a positive review. I ordered 13 boxes of 6' slats to cover 130' of chain link. After checking prices at the local fence supply business, the local hardware/building supply stores, and online, I determined that the HomeDepot Casa Verde privacy slats were at least worth a try. Since I bought more than $45 worth, shipping was free, and I had a $10 off promo code. (HomeDepot will also take returns of this item, if you mis-measure and order too many.) Final price, including sales tax was about $600. Other stores couldn't come close to that price.
I installed all 130' (by myself) today. I got up at 4 AM, and by the time it was 4 PM, I was finished. Here are a few tips that I didn't find anywhere, but found out today from my install: 1. Have a pair of aviator shears handy to cut some of the slats and bottom channels. I'm sure scissors could work equally well, but aviator shears are great for this. 2. On level areas, you'll have no problem running the slats down the chain link and locking them in place in the bottom channel. However, on sloping areas of your chain link, be prepared for some heavy tugging to get the slats all the way down and locked. Since the chain link is at an angle on the slopes, the diamonds can get a bit contorted--hence narrower--especially near an end post where the fencing has been tightened. Don't despair or give up. Be patient and gently run the slats down with one hand pushing on the slat above the top of the fence and the other on the side of the slat, to guide it in place. 3. After you finish with all of your runs, you will probably find that the slats are not exactly vertical against the end posts. You can fill in the empty spaces by trimming a few extra slats and inserting them one at a time.
Positives? These slats seem to cut down the noise from the neighbors and definitely are an aid at blocking the wind. One other thing, these slats are easy to install, but after you do you will be in GREAT shape. For every 10 ft., it takes 82 slats. Since I installed 13 boxes worth, I figured I squatted at least 1,066 times!
So there you go--a very positive review from me. As far as quality goes, I think these will hold up well, compared to the many pricier options. HomeDepot rocks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KP2425 Went up quickly and looks good.
As the other reviewers stated these slats are very easy to install and look great. I split some of the slats to fill-in some of the gaps. This took a little bit of skill. Tin snipes did not cut straight enough. Scoring the valley in the center with a utility knife worked well. The only real issue was the areas of the chain link that where bent and the bottom took a little bit to work in. I had 6 people working and we put up 6 boxes of slats in under 90 minutes. Lots of good comments considering what we were trying to hid around the entrance to our church.

Product was just what I wanted, only ordered half of what I needed, thinking I only needed 1 but need two slats per square, may not keep out zombies though, you may want rebar for that.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheOldRedDog Good value for the money
Merchandise is advertised on the Home Depot web site as having 82 slats (my count showed either 82 or 83), AND three 4 ft. locking channels per box. I placed 2 orders for 10 boxes and 8 boxes respectively. The 10 box order had 2 boxes with NO locking channels and the 8 box order had 1 box with no locking channels. This was not a major issue for me, since the total of 15 sets of locking channels was more than sufficient for my needs, but I imagine this shortage could be a serious problem for someone who only orders 3 or 5 or 6 boxes and is short one or more sets of locking channels. This appears to be a genuine quality control issue - I have the 'packed by #xxx' tags from each box of both my orders. They were all done by the same set of initials two weeks apart. One wonders if perhaps the packing folks are given an incentive to shave a few locking channels here and there?

A great improvement over the redwood slats that we replaced.

The color was a little bit darker than what I was anticipating from the photos, but it does its intended job and I am satisfied.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Consumer Great Product!
Product is easy to install and does well as a semi-privacy fence. As others have stated you can see through the spaces in between as it is going thru chain link. But is a great improvement to mute the fish bowl effect.
