Q. HOW TO EASILY SEPARATE OR JOIN (SPLICE) CHAIN LINK MESH?
A. You can separate and remove the extra chain link Mesh with pliers by opening the top and bottom loops (knuckles) of a single strand of wire at any point of separation. Turn the strand counter clockwise, as it unwinds up through the links until the Mesh comes apart.
Q. HOW TO EASILY (SPLICE, ATTACH) JOIN ADDITIONAL CHAIN LINK MESH ?
Join pieces of chain-link mesh together using a single strand of wire that can be removed from end of your piece. To attach the two pieces, lay them next to each other and insert loose strand through and around the first links of both pieces, turning it clockwise as it starts weaving through both the pieces in a corkscrew style, all the way to the end of the links. Turn and tighten and secure the knuckles at top and bottom same as others. NOTE: Before sections can be attached, a second strand may have to be removed to allow similar ends to be joined together. Observe how the strands flow together in the mesh, its simple.
