I ordered 3 rolls of this chain link fabric to do a 45' by 53' fence against the back of the house. After reading some of the reviews I was a little worried that the fabric would be damaged on arrival. Only 1 roll had a couple minor bends that were easily straightened with pliers.
I ordered everything to install the fence for home delivery. All the material was in good condition but the gate was not with the order even though the shipping documents said it was. I'm still waiting on the gate and having a little hassle with the 3rd party vendor on that issue.
I bought the cheapest post hole digger and 20 of the 60 lb. sacks of concrete mix at the local Home Depot. On the 1st day I dug the holes for the terminal post and set them in cement. The 2nd day I dug the 12 holes for the line posts using nylon mason's string stretched across the terminal posts to align the line posts and set the height and then cemented the posts in.
On the 3rd day I used a small come-along and stretched the fabric (if I had the gate I would be finished). I made my own stretching tool out of a 2 X 4 and some hooks (shown in photo). It worked great, just remember to put the 3 hooks at a bit of an angle as you can see.
I've installed a lot of wood fence but this is the first chain link I've dealt with. I didn't put stones in the bottom of the hole or put the dry mix in the hole and I don't agree with those methods. I dug the holes a couple inches deeper and put a shovel full of cement (mixed in a wheelbarrow) in the bottom of each hole. It took sixteen 60 lb. sacks to set the 6 terminal posts and 12 line posts. The soil in this part of Georgia is fairly easy to dig but we're having a dry spell so I dug all the holes about 6 inches, filled the holes with water, then dug another 6 inches, filled with water again and it went pretty quick.
The fence is for a sweet little dog that came to our house one day and decided to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sullytdi It was chain link....
One end of the chain link was finished properly the other end the loops where half open which made rolling it out a real pain, It would get hooked on itself about every foot.
Was more of a production problem, the wire itself was good for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JKW14 Great Product!!
I got this to build a dog kennel for my English Bulldogs and it has worked greatly. I got the 48in because it was the right hight to keep them in and other animals out. I would definately recommend this product to a friend.

Had to buy a roll of chain link to dog-proof my fence. Price was lower at HD than anywhere else in town. Great quality product. Fit the bill exactly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hank Damaged tops and bottoms
The fencing looked ok on the pallet but when I began to roll out to install I found the tops and bottoms of the fence had been bent and no longer interlaced in various places on each roll. There was no pattern to the damage so I don't know if it was handling or manufacturing that caused the problem. I needed to get the fence up so I used a pair of pliers to bend the damaged strands back to place to make it usable. Hid what I could but if you look at the fence you can pick out the repairs.

As long as you account for a foot or two being mangled beyond use this is a really good product for the money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EngineerMike slightly damaged goods
Normally a mundane product not needing comment. This particular lot showed a good deal of edge damage requiring significant time and effort to straighten, in addition to being about a foot and a half short in length. Suggest careful inspection before buying
