Bufftech vinyl fence offers 4 ways to fasten rails to posts. The fence style will dictate which method is used:

  • Bullet clip: the bullet clip is a gravity clip that is used to fasten Bel Air and Wilshire style rails to posts.
  • Screws: when using bullet clips, the top rail must be fastened with an 8 ¾” stainless steel screw.
  • Lock Ring: the lock rings is a circular-shaped fastener with tabs that insert into Post & Rail and Arlington style rails for fastening rails to posts.
  • Crimp Lock: the crimp lock is a method for fastening rails inside of posts. The rail is manufactured with notches (crimped) so that it stays within the post once inserted.
