If you’re using your backyard as a refuge more often than normal, you might want a little more privacy from next door neighbors. You don’t need to hire contractors or buy expensive tools to enjoy your backyard without prying eyes. This clever find from Fenpro can turn any chain link fence into a privacy fence. 

How It Works

Fenpro chain link fence privacy tape is simple to install as a weekend project. To install, simply weave the privacy tape through the chain link fence and trim to size. You’ll get up to 90% visibility blockage and the only tool you’ll need is a pair of scissors. At $35 per roll, it’s one of the most economical ways to upgrade your fence.

Durable and Weather Resistant

This privacy tape is specially designed to withstand the elements so it will remain secure on your fence throughout every season. The tape’s fade and crack resistant material can withstand extreme temperatures from -10 to 120 degrees.
