To properly secure your electric fence, you should learn how to tie the fence wire. Although it may seem daunting, the process is actually quite straightforward and requires minimal equipment. A bit of effort put in will have your fence wire tied down tightly in no time.
Constructing a Secure Perimeter with Electric Fence Wire
Using a pair of wire cutters at the ready, start by snipping off pieces of electric fence wire to the desired size. Leave sufficient length in the remainder to wrap several rounds around the T-post.
Then, secure one veritable extremity of the cord around the T-post with a firm wrap, making certain that it is tight and secure.
Seizing a hammer, drive the wire-wrapped T-post firmly into the earth until it is fully secured.
Wrap the other end of the wire onto the T-post with a few snug loops, taking care to do so in the same pattern as before.
Using the hammer, drive the T-post into the soil and secure it in place.
Finally, to ensure a secure connection, slip on your insulated gloves and give the wire a firm yank.
You’ve just accomplished the feat of correctly and securely connecting electric fence wire – what a magnificent job!
