Need to build a removable fence panel

I need to surround some pool equipment so I'm going to build a two sided fence. My plan is to use 4x4 posts right into concrete. I live in nevada where we get like no rain per year so I'm not too worried about not using a post bracket. I would like to just make fence panels kind of like the prebuilt cedar ones from home depot. I don't want the 4x4's to show so I'm just going to put the panels on the front of the posts. I want to be able to remove one of the panels so I need to do some kind of hangers. My thought is some kind of metal piece on the fence hanger that would hook onto metal slots on the 4x4's. Can make a suggestion for such a hanger or any other method? The panels are not going to be very long (say 3 or 4 feet each) so the hangers don't need to be super strong... Thanks, Chris


I made a rough drawing of the bracket I'm talking about. I just don't know what it's called....

i would build my panels flush with the posts to the inside, and install exterior hinges. then when you need to remove just pop the pins and move, just like a door. when installing the pins load up with white grease. just a thought

Agree, Just have a hinged gate.

No point in reinventing the wheel.

If you want a lift off, a french cleat would work.
