  • Recent purchase, perfect for fixing fencing that has been pulled and twisted over several years. Previously tried pliers, this makes it so easy and much better results.

  • Used this wire tensioning tool once, it worked well and I'd recommend it.
  ллллл
     
  • I wondered if this was going to be a worthwhile purchase. It has been invaluable
  ллллл
  • What a perfect bit of kit made life so much easier
  ллллл
  • Excellent tool for a one person tensioning system. Just put up 100m worked a treat very taught line. Holding in place with hip knee or whatever and leaves hand free for stapling.

  • Well made, does the job well and looks good quality and should last a lifetime. Takes a few minutes to work out how to use it but then a great tool.
  ллллл
  • ok
  ллллл
  • Replacement for a previous one I owned no problems with it. Does what it says on the tin. No vat invoice so 4 stars
  лллл
  • Very handy
  ллллл
  • Great job thank,s
  ллллл
  • Excellent for tensioning short runs of wire
  ллллл
  • Very good product, completed 100 mts of fencing in less than 2 hrs.
  ллллл
  • easy to use
  ллллл
  • ThereТs a knack to using it, particularly if you are working alone, but works very well and you will get all the tension you need onto fencing wire. Well made and should last.
  ллллл
  • Have not used this personally, but, the person who did the fencing job on our behalf seemed ok with it.
  лллл
  • Great item, recommend.
  ллллл
  • Great tool
  ллллл
  • Just put up 25 metres of post and wire and it made the job much easier and a better looking fence when finished.
  ллллл
  • Worked with wire mesh fence by attaching a single strand of wire to two pieces of wood bolted vertically to fence. Also worked with square end post without difficulty.
  ллллл
  • I used this for building my first stock fence and found it a great product. Try as I may with other methods, this tool gave far superior results and saved a lot of effort / sore hands. Glad I bought it.
  ллллл
  • Handy apparatus. Makes stretching single wire a easy job. Recommended item for your shed if you do a lot of fencing.
  ллллл
  • Just received the Tensioning Tool looks a very good quality item well made quick delivery
  ллллл
  • Fences wih barbed wire are the devil to tension unless you have a tractor and a tensioner! and wire thats up and down looks bad, this makes a good job of it in minutes,
  ллллл
  • Excellent does the job extremely well.
  ллллл
  • Brilliant tool!
  ллллл
  • Fantastic Tool. Would recommend to anyone.
  ллллл
  • Works really well - spent all last Sunday doing about 5 meters with fence pliers and with new tensioner did about 50 meters in couple of hours (two of us).
  ллллл
  • Great tool makes job easyer .
  ллллл
  • Great but if kit, highly recommend buying one . Barbed wire, female , hammer , staples and this kit all working on their own and managed to get a stock proof fence line up in a matter of hours.
  ллллл
  • Read the manual on how to use it.
    Excellent, easy to use tool
  ллллл
  • This tool is just what we needed for our horse fencing - previously we had been tensioning the wire using sets of mole grips and a lot of "man and woman power". Can't say that this is a one person tool - unless you would are an octopus but it really does do the job and with a lot less effort. Brilliant purchase. Can't believe we have been using man/woman power for the last 10 years and hadn't come across this gadget before though !
  лллл
  • All good thank you.
  лллл
  • Does exactly what it says on the box. Easy to use, even alone but with a partner even easier. Not sure that I would recomend it for a contractor but for casual home use a perfect tool.
  ллллл
  • So easy to use on own. Used to tension high tensile equine fence. Need to learn first as looks like could cut wire if to vigorous and action can rotate head if not concentrating. However once learned how to position properly on post a doddle. Ued on 3.5" fence posts and telegraph posts with ease. Well made and looks like will last.
  ллллл
  • Great tool
  ллллл
  • Helpful piece of fencing equipment. I single handed managed to attach 2 rows of barb wire nice and tight above stock fencing, 150 mtr over an afternoon. The sheep wire was also fitted using this tool, though that took quite a lot longer to attach to posts, (several staples to each post|) .
    Be aware that at the point of positioning the wire to tool, too much force ca snap the wire, this happened to me once , over a total of 6 x 50 mtr rolls of wire. Farming friends and neighbours very impressed with my work. 60 year old lady smallholder.
  лллл
  • It. Is. Good
  ллллл
  • These are ok, and they do make it easier than any other method to get tension, However....because the wire fits in one side of the tool nothing to balance the other side, once you apply a lot of pressure the tool rolls and the wire falls out. Might be ok if there was two of you doing it, but alone this was a problem.
  ллл
  • I thought that as this product was cheap I might be wasting my money. It is manufactured to the highest standards and I can't fault it.
  ллллл
  • my son needed for work, said, was great, just what he needed, and strong
  ллллл
  • Good
  ллллл
  • It works! It tensions wire. Easy to use. Marvellous! (However the tool is easy to manufacture. Could/should it be cheaper? Presumably limited demand & not much competition.)
  лллл
  • A brilliant bit of kit. Fairly easy to use, just need to get used to it. Better at tensioning one strand rather than pig/sheep net, but ace at barbed wire.
  ллллл
  • Great product
  ллллл
  • It seems fine.
  лллл
  • Does what it says on the tin....great at stretching and tightening fence wire. Recommended
  ллллл
  • does the job and great delivery
  ллллл
  • I will never fence anything again without one. Struggled for year without one. makes life much easier.
  ллллл
  • Excellent piece of fencing equipment
  ллллл
  • Good clever tool. Cheaper than in the shops. Can use one handed and essential to put wire up tightly
  ллллл
  • A good tool.
  ллллл
  • Seems to be a robust well made item but I have not had the chance to use it yet.
  лллл
  • Tight Wire!
  ллллл
  • An excellent aid to maintaining my fences - it's like a third arm.
  ллллл
  • A good tool for tensioning wire, be careful I managed to snap two strand 2mm each strand barbed wire high tensile with this tool by putting to much pressure on it. Looks like it will last a long time.
  ллллл
  • great item!
  ллллл
  • Found this easy to use and does a real good job.
  ллллл
  • best thing for stretching wire I have ever used
  ллллл
  • Excellent piece of kit but you will require two people to use, one to strain the wire and one hammer staples home.
  ллллл
  • Don't even consider putting up stock fencing and tensioned wire without this product.
  ллллл
  • An essential piece of kit for any fencing job - this one works brilliantly!
  ллллл
  • Good handy tool if your doing fencing with wire
  лллл
  • A1. Cannot fault this tool.
  ллллл
  • This is a good tool but it does have tendency to twist when used on posts with a small diameter.
  лллл
  • I have used this for stock fencing. For short runs of fencing it does a good enough job (maybe 20m) or if you do some 'light tensioning' between posts, For longer stretches, eg standard 50m lengths, it does not pull enough of the wire to properly tension it. Also as another reviewer mentioned, the tool can twist in your hand as you are tensioning the wire.
  ллл
  • Why I have I not used one before? It is easy to use - better on round than square posts where it still does the job - but you must remember to provide supports to corner posts as you can build up tension which you cannot by using gloved hands alone.
  ллллл
  • Brilliant tool
  ллллл
  • Useful tool
  ллллл
  • We bought this some time ago knowing that at some stage we'd get around to replacing the fencing around our property. It's now been used and I'd recommend this to anyone that's thinking of fixing or fitting in a fence. It sets the tension needed to have a properly installed and efficient parameter fence.
  ллллл
  • nice gift
  лллл
  • Brilliant tool.
  ллллл
  • saves alot of effort & cheap but good quality tool
  ллллл
  • very useful tool for erecting stock fencing. Allows mesh and tension wires (including barbed wire) to be pulled taught for a professional finish.
ллллл
  • Very useful robust tool,use improves with a second person.
  ллллл
  • handy to use on your own
  лллл
  • Works very well
  ллллл
  • It is a great tool to have handy if it's farm fence your working on or bottom wire for a chain link fence. I'm typically working on chain link fence and use it only for industrial work. Given the posts you're pulling off of are silver it's fine doing so but if it's black posts you're thinking of pulling off make sure you have a can of spray paint; for the post after your finished pulling the wire with will be heavyily scratched afterward. A rubber backing on the part touching the post could avoid this I believe and also grip better. Other then that I still have trials to go do until I can give a proper rating but all in all great from what jobs I've used it on so far and I mean one and a half pulls were talking tight...
  лллл
  • Great, a big improvement on trying to tighten barb-wire with fencing pliers !
  лллл
  • Ended up with a very professional looking job. Worth the purchase
  лллл
  • Does exactly what it says. Handy tool to have for fencing.
  лллл
  • Did the job very well. Can't complain with product. Tighten with one hand, nail with other. Very simple to use
  ллл
  • Ideal tool
  ллллл
  • very handy and sample
  ллллл
  • Excellent tool, well made, easy to use, has improved the way I put up fencing!
  ллллл
  • A great tool. Does exactly as they say, easy to use and makes tightening wires a breeze. Works great with just one person too.
  ллллл
  • well priced, well packaged, well delivered. Once I have used it I will be in a position to rate it's performance - although testimony from other people I know suggest that it will be more than adequate for my needs
  лллл
  • very pleased with it now used twice for over 80 metres of fencing wish I had bought it before great
  ллллл
  • Excellent tool, just what I needed. Need to develop technique, and works best with two people. Fences no longer floppy!
  ллллл
  • A strong sturdy tool, simple to operate & very effective. I truly wish I had this years ago. If you are fencing, you will find this tool very useful
  ллллл
  • although this tool fulfils it's required function, it is sometimes a bit awkward and can twist when tensioning very low wires
  лллл
  • Just bought some land and realized that I would need to repair the fencing from time to time.This tool is well worth the money
  ллллл
  • Like many other buyers of this excellent tool have found, it does exactly what it says, and provides a simple and safe means of tightening wire fencing. A well thought out product, which looks like it will last for years if used and maintained with reasonable care. Be careful who you lend it to - they might not want to give it back!
  ллллл
  • When working alone renewing plain wire fencing, this tool is ideal. It is the simplest and quickest tool for the job and needs no skill or experience to use it. I doubted buying this tool for years because of its price but I now regret such hesitation because of the difficulty of the task and the time I have wasted trying to work without it.
  ллллл
  • two persons would be very easy to use. well built but will need oiling/ maintaining. I used it to out up raspberry support.
  лллл
  • I have yet to use this but it seems pretty well made and should stand up to some serious use later on.
  ллл
  • Brilliant little tool for erecting fences, but it is especially useful for repair work. It can also be used by just one person.
  ллллл
  • Though I have not used this tool yet, it is a very straight forward looking tool that should do its job.
  ллллл
  • Having a smallholding I have a need to be able to repair fences but don't want to spend a fortune on expensive equipment that will simply gather dust most of the time. This tool is more than effective enough for my needs, is simple to use and robust
  ллллл
  • Allows one man to put up wire fence as tight as you want savings on not having to pay for help. A do it yourself dream come true. Smart design.
  ллллл
  • Just bought one of these for footpath maintenance work; tensioning existing fences when installing gates to replace stiles. Much easier than fencing pliers for tensioning the wire BUT it cut one strand each time on two of the eight wires it was used on. The lower edge of the blue jaws are suitably rounded but the upper edges had a very sharp finish. I've taken a few minutes to smooth these off with a thin file and a diamond stone and I'm sure it'll be fine next time we use it.
  лллл
  • It is amazing the wire tension you can put on. I'd recommend this tool to everyone who does fencing.
    Buy one now.
  ллллл
  • A fantastic bit of kit at not alot of money , its worth having even if you only use it a few times . you can really get the wire tight . the first time I used it was on a 25m run of sheep wire and pulled it that tight without thinking I pulled the far post out of the ground . It is so easy to use on your own to you dont need 3 pairs of hands and you dont loose fingers like using a crow bar . Well would recomend to anyone , d.i.y or regular user
  ллллл
  • It's a good sturdy tool that should give years of service if looked after well. Easy to use to strain the wire, although it still helps to have a second person to tack the wire. Only problem I noticed was that on some of our larger straining posts, the 'foot' of the tool was too curved and therefore didn't sit well against the post and tended to slip.
  ллллл
  • easy to use and much cheaper than the alternatives. can be used when working on your own without any real effort.
  лллл
  • Once one gets the way of using this tool; which doesn't take long, it is quick and easy and with a little thought can be used easily by one person. It's done a good job round my paddock
  ллллл
  • This was purchased as a simple alternative to using barrel strainers, worked out far cheaper and very quick. Installed nearly 1 km of wire in a day, simple and quick to use. Seemed durable and well made. No complaints, exactly as required.
  ллллл
  • This is a little beaut and excellent value for money. Bit difficult to work out how to use it at first and better to operate it with another person doing the tacking, but all round it does the job very well. MP Devon

  • Invaluable tool when putting up stock fence especially if working alone. Easy to use (watch any of the clips on youtube)

  • Invaluable tool when putting up stock fence especially if working alone. Easy to use (watch any of the clips on youtube)
  ллллл
  • I have erected miles of fencing in my time i wish i had it years ago
  ллллл
  • I found the wire tensioner easy to use,it felt safe and secure whilst being able to get the wire very tight
  ллллл
  • Having been let down at the last minute by a fencing contractor, I purchased this item along with the required materials to erect a stock fence myself, a bit daunting as I only had the internet for instructions. The Tensioning tool was very easy to use and the end result was a professional looking job.(This from a fencing contractor!) Absolutely delighted with the finished result and even after only "one outing" this has paid for itself. Made from good quality material the finish also looks like it will withstand the expected inclement weather and conditions.

  • i use one of these,great tool.sometimes simple works best
   
  • Two inexperienced pensioners used this fencing tool on a stock wire fence we were erecting. We both found the item easy to use and reduced our work time considerably. More importantly the end result was way beyond our original expectations. This tool really did make a difference.
   
  • Just been using one of these tools, really made the job easier putting up some stock wire. So easy to use.

ллллл
  • Very handy bit of kit
ллллл
  • Tidy bit of stuff
лллл
  • Both tools do what they are designed to do. Wire tensioner enables you to get really good tension on wire. Works with any diameter wire. Need to take care with smaller diameter wire as it is easy to put too much tension on the wire and it will snap.
  ллллл
  • So easy to use and despite me being a girl, my fence is straight and tensioned just like the one I paid a professional to do
  ллллл
  • This is a tool I should have bought years ago, !! It means you can fence on your own with safety, wire is so tight it sings!!
  ллллл
  • Excellent tool, doesn't do every thing but when it comes into play it is invaluable. Well worth the money.
