FB/FBR/FBFZ Fence Rail Brackets

FB/FBR/FBFZ

On This Page

FB and FBR fence brackets make the connection between fence rails and posts simple and strong. Eliminates the need for toe nails or screws. Clean, versatile connections make planning and building fences, deck/porch railings and louvers easier and faster.

The patent-pending FBFZ flat rail bracket offers a more concealed install look. In addition to fence-rail connections, the FBFZ can also be used for handrail attachments for porch and deck railings that are 30" or closer to ground level.
