Fencing projects are dependent on the use of wire fence knots. In particular, half-hitches are an essential type and are used to attach the wire to posts and top rails. Furthermore, tension knots are beneficial for securing the wire to a tension bar as well as tensioning it. Finally, end knots prove vital by enabling the wire to be connected to an end post and be capped off.
Tying a half-hitch may be the easiest way to build a wire fence, as it just requires a few simple steps. First, form a loop in the material. Then, thread the remainder of the wire through the loop. Finally, pull tight to secure against the post for a completed knot.
Secure the wire to your tension bar with a tension knot by first making a loop in the wire and passing the end through. Pull tightly until the critical loop wraps snuggly around the bar before you can consider the knot as tied!
To secure the wire’s finish, begin by forming a circle with it. Next, slip the end of the wire through the encircling loop and tug it firmly to the end post. Once adequately pulled, your end knot is finished!
