How To Pull Your Fence To Get It Tight

March 18, 2013 | by Duncan Page

Pull it Tight

Ever wondered how to stretch a fence to get it tight? This video shows you how to make and use a homemade fence stretcher you can use to pull your fence tight. In the video, chicken wire is being installed; however, this type of stretcher can be used for all styles of woven wire fence as well. Steel stretcher bars are also available to buy if you don't want to make your own. Be sure to check out the helpful tip at the end of the video.

But Not Too Tight

It is important to have a level pull uniformly across the height of the fence to avoid distorting the mesh. The amount of tension is determined by the type of mesh. Welded wire fencing material cannot be tightened as much as woven wire meshes, such as field fence, horse fence, deer and wildlife fence.
