Keeping the right tension on a boundary line keeps it from sagging or bowing. Some wire mesh fence types like high tensile and chain link need more tension than others. With a welded wire fence you'll prevent sagging and bowing by adding a cap and bottom rail if you're using wood posts. However, if using T-posts a fence puller is very recommended.
Tightening the Guide Wire with a Wire Puller
Using a Wire Puller is that the easiest method to tighten the Guide Wire.
1)Wrap the graceful Wire Puller chain round the second End Post then back through the clamping jaws on the top of the chain.
2)Place the top of the chain into the chain walking jaws of the Puller.
3)Manually pull the Guide Wire until it's relatively tight then place the wire into the clamping jaws on the handle of the graceful Wire Puller. These jaws lock onto the wire as tension is applied.
4)Tighten the Guide Wire by cranking the handle to steer the jaws up the chain.
5)Once the Guide Wire is tight, wrap it round the End Post and cut it with High-Tensile Wire Cutters, leaving roughly 2’ of additional wire to form a knot.
6)We recommend employing a special high-tensile slip knot to tie-off the Guide Wire.
7)Once the Guide Wire is tied off, release the strain on the Guide Wire by walking the jaws of the graceful Wire Puller backtrack the chain.
8)Pick up the Guide Wire and drop it. This snaps the guide wire to its natural position between the 2 End Posts, supplying you with a straight boundary line to use for accurate post placement.
