Gripple Wire Tensioners

Dear Pippa

I think it would work with any wire of the same thickness of the wire it comes with.  I’ve only used it with the recommended wire myself, but it looks like a standard garden wire.  It looks to be approx 3mm thick.  The wire that the tensioner comes with is very strong (solid nylon) and is very long lasting.

The gripple tensioners are one of my personal favourite Harrod products.  They are so easy to use and are so effective.  I cannot sing their praises enough.  You thread the wire through a hole on the tensioner and then loop the wire around the support or vine eye.  The wire is then threaded back through the tensioner via another hole.  The tensioner automatically holds the wire taught.  You can pull it as tight as you please.

I hope this is helpful to you.  Please let me know if you need any further information.

Kindest Regards
