    Default How to attach corral panels to posts?

    We are making a small run off the barn and there are basically two posts with a line of corral panels between them. I looked at them and felt like a moron, lol. How do I attach them to the wood posts?!? I know the panels obviously fit together, but I'm having a stupid moment here... help?

    screw two large hook eyes (like the type you would hang a feed bucket off of) placed at the height right in the middle of the pins on the panel. Slip the pins through them to secure.

    Oh wow. Major "duh" moment. How easy. Thanks. I was ready to just wrap baling twine around them.

    What Equibrit said.

    You need one pointing up and one pointing down to prevent a horse from lifting the gate/panel off the hooks. Can't get that all set up with eye-hooks

    The top hook points down, the bottom one points up. You slide the panel/gate into place, bottom gate-side hinge on top of the upward-facing hook. You then slide the top gate-side hinge up, to meet up with the bottom-facing hook, and screw to tighten.

    We have used lengths of chain with the chain connectors. Nothing for a horse to hook themselves on. And quickly disconnected in case of emergency.

    We use those heavy duty metal plumber's straps/hangers ---- they go right around the pipe panel and you can bolt to the barn wall, fence, etc. They work great!

    I thought about that, but where the "v" notch things (that the pin drop through) there's not enough room to strap it to the post. Maybe we have different kinds. That was my first thought though.

    Our roping arena is made of panels and pipe posts.
    We just wired the panels to the posts in two places with a #9 wire, that is several times as thick as baling wire and bent the ends inwards, so no one would get hooked on them.

    They sell that wire at most hardware stores very cheap.

    In the horse pens, some we wired also, the ends we welded small pipe pieces and slid the panel pins thru there.

    I did mine with nylon web straps.
