Vinyl Fence Picket & Rail Notchers

Vinyl Fence Picket & Rail Notchers make raised tabs in the end sections of vinyl rails and pickets.  The louver-shaped tabs create a durable “lock” that prevents the rail or picket from pulling out of the post or rail slot.  Available in two widths: 1/2” (13 mm) for pickets and rails; 3/4” (19 mm) for larger rails.
