Easy-to-Use Fence Wire Tightener
Manufactured by a farm family in Australia, the "Twitcher" is a takeoff on an old design that has been around for nearly 100 years. But the originals were made from cast iron and were bulky and difficult to use.
The new version is made from stiff 7/16-in. dia. galvanized steel rod formed into an L-shape. You don't have to cut the wire to apply them and they won't damage the wire. They can be tightened at any time, as needed. Once applied, Twitchers can be removed at any time to be reused.
They sell for about 40 cents apiece in bulk.
