9-Trim The Fence Out
TRIM THE FENCE OUT
- Staple the fence to the wooden fence postsStaple and clip the fence from
the ground up if you are trying to control predators.
If you are trimming the fence to a height of 3-5
inches off the ground, trim from the top so that
the fence has a smoother top finish.
Hammer all fence staples at an angle to ensure that
the barbs on the staple get a good grip into the
fence post’s wood grain. This also helps to
stop any potential splitting of the post.
Do not hammer the staples completely into the wood.
You must leave enough room to allow the wire fence
fabric to slide freely under the staple. This enables
the fence to flex upon impact by large animals,
or when expansion and contraction of the fence occurs
due to changing temperature.
- Attach the fence to the intermediate steel postsBe sure to use only Class-3
galvanized clips to fasten our high-tensile
wire to steel posts.We recommend our fast and easy post clip system
for fastening the fence wire to intermediate
steel posts. Our system works with both t-posts
and steel pipe (cylindrical) posts.
To fasten the clips on the post, slide the
clip around the post and over the fence wire,
then slide the tails of the clip into the
holes in the special clip drill chuck. Use
your drill to twist the ends of the clip tightly
around the post.
