Streching Tool Clamps Onto Woven Wire Fence

Fence-stretching has never been easier, thanks to this new one-of-a-kind tool that's suitable for virtually any size woven wire and hooks up and unhooks in seconds.
  Stewart Fence Co.'s "Fence Clamp Stretcher" consists of two 50-in. bars made of mild tool steel that clamp together, one on either side of the fence. An A-shaped puller is then chained to a pickup, tractor or come-along to stretch the fence.
  To use, you first install a corner post, roll out the wire and then clamp stretcher to wire. The more you pull, the tighter the tool clamps the wire to ensure against slipping.
  "I've used a Cat D4 to pull up to 1,000 ft. of wire and it's never slipped nor damaged the tool or wire in any way," says Spence Stewart, inventor. "It sure beats using a couple of 2 by 4's bolted together."
  Suitable for any size woven wire from 32 to 49 in. Can be factory-adapted for game fence wire too.
  Sells for $95 plus S&H (about $15 in U.S.).
