Barbed Wire
Step 1
Step 1. Choose any convenient point along the slack fence line to make the repair. Spread the tool handles and place the slack wire in jaw slots.
Step 2
Step 2. Bring the handles together to stretch the wire as tight as possible, forming a loop in the fence wire. Secure the tool in this position by attaching the chain to the notch in the right handle.
Step 3
Step 3. Lay a short length of spare wire across face of tool, allowing 7" to 10" on either side. (Any kind of strong wire will work in making the repair.)
Step 4
Step 4. Wrap spare wire around the stretched fence wire making sure to get a least 2 full wraps on each side.
Step 5
Step 5. Inset fence pliers handle (or any tool) into the loop. Wrap the loop around the spare wire.
Step 6
Step 6. Continue wrapping until loop is completely closed around the spare wire.
Step 7
Step 7. Loosen the chain and remove tool from wire.
