WATCH: Maximising the life of your wire fence


The Gripple Torq Tensioning Tool is a wire tensioner tool that regulates the load applied to it, delivering consistent results and maximising the life of your wire; it is ideal for wire fence tensioning and wire trellising tensioning, according to its creators.

The all-metal construction results in added durability and strength. Other features include long handles for increased leverage, quick release cam to position the tool easily on the wire and soft, moulded, ergonomic grips for added comfort.

Remember:

  • Leave enough overlap to use the tool when cutting the wire to length

  • An electric fence is a psychological barrier so there is no need to have the line as tight as barbed wire

  • There is a gauge on the tool to tell how much tension is on the line

  • You can reduce the use of gripples by using the reef knot

  • There is also a tool available to release gripples
