new vinyl fence
Posted by: wurm
Date: November 16, 2021 02:44PM
After too many years of looking at a rotting rail fence in our front yard, we bought and had a new vinyl fence installed last week (that was the soonest for installation after signing for it on 6/28).

Anyway, in the past I just drilled about a 6" section of pvc conduit at the intersection of the post and rails that we used to stick small flagpoles in on Memorial Day, Veterans Day, 9/11, etc. Well, I don't want to be drilling holes into this new fence, so I'm looking for cheap and easy ideas to accomplish the same thing before the next flag-flying occasion.

The key here is cheap and easy, so I'm not looking for some $50 contraption that will support a 50 pound flag. We're talking about little three or four foot flags on 1/2" thick wooden poles, and I'll want to put up about five of them along the length of the fence, probably mounted the same place I did the older ones – at the junction of the post and rail. Hell, I may end up just using a bungee cord to strap the same conduit in place. But I'd love to hear other and better options.

Thanks!

White cable ties might be less obtrusive.

zip tie a pvc pipe to the top railing and mount the flags in there. Then remove them after the event. Overlap two zip ties in an X for stability.

That’s the idea, it serves no other purpose.

Yep. Saw those. Pricey indeed. Zip ties are looking like a strong possibility. Even considering a small patch of white Velcro tape on the rail and on white pvc conduit. Or cut a few pieces of cord-hider, although I may have to whittle down the end of the sticks.

Just a different approach..

Nano tape to hold the PVC to the fence. It's clear, strong, and waterproof. Run a strip lengthwise along a inside corner, press the PVC into place and you are done.

Why are you trying to keep vinyl out of your yard? Is it vinyl migration/mating season already?

You really don't want those vinyl shavings all over the yard, just terrible to deal with.

That's looking like a real possibility, Ombligo. Thanks!
