Door Knob Fence Splicer
"It'll splice wire better than most wire splicers on the market and you won't get skinned knuckles," says Jimmy Moore, Shelbyville, Kty. He came up with the idea of using an old-style door knob to splice fence. He uses a knob still fitted with the metal shaft that goes through the door. That shaft has two or three holes in it that fasten to the door knob on the other side of the door.
The idea is to stick the ends of the wire to be spliced through the holes. Then you simply turn the knob and twist the wires together. "It'll work on wire of any size. We use it on barbed wire and even on heavy gauge cattle wire. It works so slick you can hardly believe it," says Moore.
