Jodi Marks: Well, as you see, fences really are a great addition to your backyard for privacy and also to just dress them up. But vinyl fencing is another option too, right, Shea?

Shea Pettaway: That’s right. We have a system here by Veranda—the Slide Lock—very easy for the do-it-yourselfer. You install the dovetail inside the post, just three screws, then you just slide in into the fence panel…

Jodi Marks: Lock it in.

Shea Pettaway: …and slide it on.

Jodi Marks: Gosh, that’s fantastic. So what this in essence does, and I’m going to put this little cap here to finish the job, too. What this does is it makes vinyl fencing that much easier to install.

The homeowners love it. Contractors love it, because it moves the project along. And the best thing about it is it hides all the screws. So it gives it a seamless flawless look.

    The slide locks are a fine idea, but in reality you will need to reinforce them with a self tapping screw or your fence will be on the ground come spring, here in New England.

    I have a Veranda Vinyl Fence with the slide brackets. (3) panels blew out in (1) of the 5 Nor’easters that we had! The slide brackets remained on the post and the panes for the most part were not damaged. Should I put self-tapping screws into the brackets to keep the panels locked in place or am I inviting additional damage if this happens again?

    The veranda fence is good to use in anywhere because of the good quality it has, unlike other fences that don’t have a lasting durability of their product. Thank you for the tips and techniques you shared with us, this is very helpful and useful.

    I had 80 feet of Veranda fence with the slide locks. the New England winter blew everything apart the slide locks were destroyed. When using the slide locks to fastening fence should you use glue to hold them in?

    Installing a veranda vinyl fence. Do I have to install a wooden post into the vinyl post first? or do I just place the vinyl post into ground without a wooden post?
