Fence Tensioner

Fence Tensioner

Always return all tools clean please. Do not overtension, beware of backlash. Ask our friendly staff to explain how to use this tool. - its easy - when you know how. Never allow an inexperienced person to operate this equipment. Have you used one before? is it wire strands or wire mesh? (different method in pulling) locate the spool at the far end of the stretch. Lay it on the ground and cut the banding. With the end of the spool firmly in your grasp, slowly pull the wire along the inside of the fence line to the other terminal post while another installer keeps constant pressure and control on the spool, never letting out of his control. Install an end band at the base of the terminal post. The ears of the band pointed to the other terminal post. With your pliers, bend a one foot section of tension wire around the nut and bolt located in the end band. Wrap the tension wire around itself with tightly wound loops at least four times. It is important that you don’t leave loose loops around the wire because when tension is applied the wire may come unraveled. Make sure that you leave at least a one foot section to wrap around the wire. Tension wire is so rigid that unless you have a good piece of wire to get a hold of while wrapping, you will quickly become frustrated. Cut away any tails. At the other end of the stretch, pull the spool past the terminal post and estimate how much wire you will need to complete the stretch. Cut the wire. Place and end band at the base of the terminal post. A fence tensioner includes a bracket adapted to be secured to a fence post, if not used before the operator must come in for training.
