This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Chain link fences do a great job of delineating property lines and keeping dogs and young children in the yard. They're not so great for privacy, though, since you can see through the links. That's why you need some of these slats. They boost curb appeal and come in a variety of colors and lengths, so you can find just the right ones to meet your needs and match your home's exterior. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best chain link fence slat on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 01, 2019:

Property owners absolutely love the look of privacy slats in their chain-link fences once they get them installed, which is easy enough to surprise many people. We were excited to find hedge slats that offer a truly unique look in this category, and ranked the widest slats at the top because of the increased privacy they offer.

He now lives and works in the inter-mountain West where he creates technical and marketing content, including white papers, solution briefs, and courseware for some of the world’s largest information technology companies. With more than 14 years of experience in the field, he has learned more than he ever thought he would know about such enterprise IT topics as cloud computing, storage, databases, business software, and networking. When he’s not writing about business computing, he can be found outdoors, probably hiking with his family and dog.
