  • The barbed staple has fish-hook type barbs above each point that prevent the staple from working its way out of the post under strain. Particularly useful for round posts, cattle fences and for stobs that are inclined to open up in dry weather, many fencers will not use anything else. The size is 40 x 4mm, the standard for many years now.

  • Large galvanised raddisseurs, also known as butterflies and tensioners, and occasionally referred to as raddishes. Used to cut and tension line wire, see stock fencing tensioning the line wire in our help and how to section if you are not clear on this. Most commonly used with mild steel line wire but everyone has their own way with raddisseurs.

  • Gripples, love them or loath them, they are here to stay. The gripple is a bullet shaped device into which two line wires are inserted from opposite directions, the gripple is used to tension the line. Early versions encountered problems in frost but the design has been improved. Some serious fencers still prefer not to use them but many find them a great saving of time and they do produce good fencelines, even enabling the cutting and shaping of high tensile net. For the amateur fencer they are a must.

  • Meteor Wire Strainers are an unusual device which enables the user to re-tension line wire without cutting it. They are particularly useful for fencelines which sag constantly under pressure. They are useful round schools, playing fields or park fences around animals accustomed to leaning on and over the fence.

  • Spiral connectors are used to join line wire to line wire, most frequently used by the professional fencer. They would often be used for a high tensile line where a raddisseur might be used on a mild steel line. Please note that tensioners and fixings are a very individual matter and each fencer does things his own way.

12 guage 250 £36.50
  • Lashing rods are used for attaching the top line of a netting to a line wire just above it to maintain vertical tension and strengthen the fence. They are also used to attach split net deer fences together, binding the top of a bottom net, a line wire, and the bottom of the top net. They are usually used just before and just after each stob or post. They come in bundles of 250 and it is helpful if you order in multiples of 250.

  • CL22 clips are used in a delta ring plier gun to attach a net to the line wire above it. Many people find them easier to use than lashing rods and they are certainly quicker than tying wire for rabbit and chicken net. Rabbit net clipped to top and middle line wires makes a very strong fence.

  • Rapid post mix is a great new product, poured into the hole around a post on top of the required amount of water it will have gone off in under twenty minutes and it is then possible to fence to that post. If you have not tried this product yet then please, please do, the fencers we work with are all very positive about it.
