Measure the height of the fence and locate the correct size of vinyl fence slats at a home improvement store.
Position yourself at the gate where you can look straight down into the chain-link mesh fencing. Locate the spacing between the chain-links that runs vertically in a straight line from top to bottom.
Hold the vinyl wing slat vertically above the chain-link gate and direct it straight down through the visible channel formed by the chain-link mesh.
Push the vinyl wing slat until the top of the slat, which is wider than the bottom, locks into position in the chain-link mesh. Continue adding slats via this process until the gate is covered for privacy.
Things You Will Need

- Stand on a stepladder if the fence is too tall to direct the slat through the chain-link mesh.
