'Dog proof' kennel latch K-1  Must be lifted straight up, then flipped to open. Your dogs can't accidentally open it. Can be pinned through 3/8" hole near top or padlocked for extra security. Made of pressed steel and heavily galvanized to resist rust. It bolts on so you can adjust it up or down for height. We can weld the latch and hinges to make the most secure gate, however, you can not easily adjust the latch height. Specify welding upon ordering, otherwise it will be bolted.  $5.00 per gate extra for welded latch and hinges.

Tight Fitting Kennel Hinge K-2   Used for maximum security, these hinges are designed for a tight fit.  The male portion of this hinge fits into the 1-3/8'' frame used on the gates.  Kennel hinges and kennel gates are easy to install and remove.  The design allows gates to be reversed.  Gates swing both directions approx. 90 degrees.  We use these hinges on all the kennels we fabricate.

K-2 Special Tight-Fitting Kennel Hinges Are Used On All Hoover Fence Fabricated Custom Kennel Packages.

Panel Clamp or Saddle Clamp   Used to connect panels together. We provide 2 per connection. They are made of galvanized pressed steel. One bolt passes through the center and provides an easy installation and removal should you wish to move the unit later. Put the nut on the inside of the enclosure. Thieves can't reach it to remove the nut and only a few dogs are smart enough to figure it out (Don't give them a wrench).

Internal Pipe Sleeve Connector   1-3/8" internal pipe sleeve connectors are a great way to add strength and rigidity to longer runs of kennel panels. We supply the sleeve with a welded bead on them to keep the connector centered between the panels which effectively ties the tops of the panels together. Piece measures approximately 3" long and is designed to fit inside of a 1-3/8" tubing.

All joints are notched and welded to give an attractive, strong connection. Welds are painted with 'special' 3 coat process to retard rusting. The 1 3/8" O.D. tubular framework is heavily galvanized.   We provide 2-3" legs on the bottom of the panels.  You may specify different leg lengths at no extra cost.   This allows a small space for washing on concrete or stabilizing in soil or gravel.  Gauges of framework are as follows:  16 ga. (.065 wall) are used for  light and medium kennel panels; 14 gauge, HF20 (.080 wall) are used on our heavy panels.

All of Hoover Fence's Custom Fabricated Kennels Feature Welded Corners and Braces.  These Welds Are Coated With Special Rust-Resistant Paint for Long-Lasting Performance.

Clip Connections on light weight kennel panels only. They are 'squeezed' tight to hold chain link to frame at the sides of the panels.

Tension Bands used on medium and heavy style kennel panels. A 5/16" x 1 1/4" bolt with a 1/2" hex nut hold the tension bar that stretches the chain link tight at the sides of each panel. They are stronger than clip connections. 5 per connection on 6' high panels, 4 per connection on 5' high panels and 3 per connection on 4' high panels. These are already installed when you receive your panels.
