Tough Spring-Type Fence Clip
The clip can be used on woven wire, barbed wire, high tensile wire, and also cattle and hog panels. Made of 12-gauge, zinc-coated high carbon spring steel, it comes with curled ends and a V-shaped bend in the middle.
“The bend is made with 1,250 lbs. of pressure and the curls with 850 lbs., so these clips are tough and will keep their form to hold the wire tight,” says Simon. “To install, you just snap the clip into place around the T-post. There’s no need to twist both ends onto the wire.”
He says the clip goes on a lot easier than other fence clips and causes less wear and tear on your hands, especially when putting up barbed wire. “It’s not tied, so you can adjust the tension on the fence wire just by pulling on it. If you’ve ever worked with 200 KSI high tension wire, then you’ll understand how tough high carbon spring steel is at 300 KSI,” says Simon.
“The clip is made so strong that if you bend it out of form with your hands, it’ll snap right back into shape.”
The clips come in a bag of 50 that sells for $6.99 plus S&H. They will soon be available in farm supply stores. Bulk clips are also available.
