    Stretching Barbed Wire

    Proper wire tension is extremely important for a good fence. If done correctly, your fence will be bull-proof for years.

    Run the wire, making sure the end of it is firmly attached to a corner or brace post with a couple of staples after being wrapped around the post a couple of times. Leave 18-24 inches of excess, and using pliers or a wire tool, wrap the excess around the main wire several times to make sure it's firmly connected. Trim any extra with your pliers.

    Go to the opposite corner where the other end of the wire is. Use a rope fence puller to remove most of the slack in the fence wire.

    Attach the end of your come-along to the post by wrapping the cable around the post and attaching the clip to the cable or metal loop on the back of the come-along. Attach the wire clamp on your come-along and clip it to the wire leaving a few feet between the clipping point and the point of connection to the fence post.

    Crank the come-along until the wire is tight. Be careful not to over tighten the wire. Breaking could cause it to snap back towards you and injure you.

    Pull the excess wire tightly against the post and fasten it with two or three staples. Release the tension on the wire, remove the come-along, and wrap the excess wire around the fence post a couple of times. Then wrap it around the main wire several times as you did at the beginning, clipping off any extra with your pliers.

    Add a few more staples in the posts at both ends for added security, and repeat the entire process for each wire.
