Fence Stretcher

Next time you’re repairing fence in the back forty, you’ll probably want to bring along a fence stretcher. Whether you need to stretch, splice, staple, or reposition high-tensile, barbed, or smooth wire, Goldenrod’s #405 fence stretcher will do the job.

Grab the ends of two wires with the fence stretcher’s hooks, and pull the ratcheting handle to bring the pieces together for splicing. You can also wrap one hook around a post while holding wire in the other for stretching, stapling, or repositioning. A controlled-release ratcheting mechanism helps prevent wire breakage.

The #405 fence stretcher’s gonna run you somewhere in the $35 to $50 range — a whole lot less than lost livestock.

    looks like a simplified hi-lift jack to me.

    And a welder is a complicated electrical short. Still does a job that we need it to do that would otherwise be very difficult.

    A Goldenrod is an old time tool that works – and there is a deluxe 415 model – but there are other ways to approach the job.

    Chain Grabs – or wire grippers an a come-along are another way to go. Or if you just have some sag – maybe a Daisy tensioner will work. Out our way I see lots of strainers on fencing to pick up the slack. If folks have a need – here is one site that sells farm fence supplies:

    I’ve also used a fence stretcher as a clamp/compressor to install coilover shocks commonly found as steering stabilizers on heavy trucks.
