Parts and assembly
The fencing is very very easy to assemble.
Just line up the feet, then (if necessary for added stability) put water or sand in the feet.
Put the (invisible from the outside) connectors into the center hole in the rails,
Put the rails into the posts, and add gate brackets, if applicable, and it's all ready to go.
The connectors and brackets for gates, are not even a necessity. They just make the fencing more usable. If the fencing is outdoors, on dirt or uneven ground, the stakes need to be added.
Feet & Stability
If you are assembling on pavement, you don't need to stake the feet, however you will need to weight them by adding water or sand.
If you are assembling for use as a straight divider in a grassy field, you may need to stake the feet.
In super high windy conditions, we do recommend sand bags on the outside of the feet.
The tiny connectors that we are including are not completely necessary however they do reinforce the rigidity of the rails, and they also function to keep them sturdily inside the posts, in case the posts are knocked out of alignment. In other words, we do recommend you include the connectors. They can be permanently glued, we included a brush and pvc cement, into the middle rib of the ribbed fence rails, and then, when the rail with the connector is inserted into the post, the next rail, without a connector, or, with a connector in another of the ribs, can be fit male/female over the connector, which improves the rigidity and stability of the fencing.
These glass filament polymer round connectors can ALSO be used for the linear fencing, to make the rails stay in the posts and to shock absorb impact. Do not be distracted by the two colors of connectors. The lower one is black radiator tubing material, and the upper one is the glass filament polymer tubing. The upper tubing is more expensive than the lower option however both work perfectly well and we supply this, optionally, for some applications; and as a mandatory inclusion for all the curvilinear applications such as the round pen, and optionally for the rectilinear applications such as complete arenas.
These connectors which are slipped inside the rails are invisible to the viewer - the upgraded version, which is always used for the portable round pen, etc., is the glass filament polymer round tubing, which absorbs even more impact and which keeps rails aligned even when hit hard as by a fast moving horse

Accepting your Shipment
Please do not be daunted or coaxed into accepting the shipment without inspecting the condition and noting any damage. There should be no problems of any kind, but, if there are, please help us hold the freight carriers accountable.
Please be sure that when these boxes arrive, WITH THE DRIVER PRESENT, mark any missing items or any damage to the packaging - even if you have to make the driver wait, while you cut the box material and inspect the items. The condition of the shipment, any visible damage, any missing pieces, and also any possible concealed damage (there has been some on shipments and the carriers refused to honor the claims ) has to be marked as damaged, or missing - they keep losing freight, on the bill of lading. Take photographs, and note any adverse conditions on the signed, documented BOL. Because these materials are being shipped perfect, brand new, by us, the freight carrier is responsible for any damage, and they will definitely deny any responsibility, for visible and also for concealed damage, unless it is noted on the bill of lading with the driver present.
Everything has been professionally packed, so there really should be no problems of any kind. Drivers inspect
and sign for both the quantity and condition prior to shipping. Any lost or damaged freight must be noted at time of receipt or liability is void.
