WR reached out to a few ranchers
via social media asking them to share
their favorite fencing tools and accessories.
Here’s how they answered:
Because there is no knot tying or
crimping, Gripple joiners can signifi -
cantly reduce the time and labor it
takes to build and maintain a fence.
Gripple joiners not only join the wire,
but they can also tension it.
Stay Tuff offers Gripple systems for
high tensile wire, barbed wire, and
t-posts. When used along with their
Gripple Tensioning Tool, you can tension
the wire and regulate the load
applied, which helps extend the life
of the wire. www.staytuff.com
There are a lot of fencing pliers out
there, but none quite like Plammer
Pliers by Moore Maker. This
combination of hammer-fencing plier
has been revamped
over the years.
of heavy steel,
which lends itself to the
durability that can withstand
the use and abuse
of ranch fencing.
Just like other fencing
pliers, Plammer Pliers are
set up with wire cutters
on both sides. What sets
them apart is the hammer
feature. The hammerhead

excellent for pulling staples
and nails. The hammer

you need to stretch and/or splice some

Ranchmate Fence Clip Tie Bar
As with stretching fences, there’s
more than one way to secure a T-post
clip. But there’s also one tool that
makes attaching and detaching clips
a whole lot easier. That tool is the
Ranchmate Fence Clip Tie Bar.
This 2-in-1 tool comes in two different
lengths and features a tie-wire clip
on one end and a fl athead screwdriver
on the other. The Ranchmate Fence
Clip Tie Bar is also made of durable,
nickel-plated steel. So, it’s in for the
long haul. www.ranchmate.com
As comical as this answer is, how awesome
would it be if your hired-hand or
spouse enjoyed fencing so much that
they took it right off your to-do list? If
you’ve got the funds to hire a contractor,
it’s not a bad idea either.
Fence contractors often have all the
latest tools and can crank out miles of
fence in a short period of time. When
you factor in the cost of supplies and
the time it takes to install, you might
just fi nd you’re money ahead hiring
the project out.
