Once all posts are set, attach rails according to the selected fence style. Typical fence boards are positioned 2″ above ground level and top rails installed 8″ from the top of the boards. Bottom rails are attached 8″ above the board bottom and middle rails are centered between the top and bottom rails.
Determine where to attach rails. PostMaster posts have holes, 1″ on center to make it easier to align rails at either end. For rail adjustment references, use the pre-marked rail alignment scores spaced 6″ on center and starting 1/4″ from the top of the post.
Fasten each rail-end using three 8# x 1 1/4″ rail screws.
NOTE: If the ground slopes, be sure to cut both rail-ends diagonally to allow a flush fit against the rail pocket of the hat section. Post clips may be required for fastening.
Attach rails to Corner Posts, using one Post Clip per rail-end. Screw one #8 x 1 1/4″ rail screw through the flange and into the rail-end. Screw a second #8 x 1 1/4″ rail screw through the flange and the semi-circular post clip hole and into the rail-end.
Fasten the bottom edges of the top and middle rails to the post clip with two more #8 x 1 1/4″ rail screws.
For the bottom rail, position the post clip above rail so it can be screwed to the rail’s top edge.
