Gripple Tensioners are designed, engineered and manufactured here in the United kingdom.
Start by setting your fixing points, the key to a good trellis is a strong anchor point. Vine eyes can be mounted directly on to timber, for brickwork and concrete you will need to drill and plug for best results.
Vine eye supports should be placed every 3 to 3.5 metres, additional vine eyes and supports can be added to any trellis.
1. Pull the nylon wire from the centre of the reel and feed through any support vine eyes, before the final vine eye simply thread the nylon wire through one of the large holes in the Gripple tensioner.
2. Pass nylon wire through the end vine eye and then back through the second large hole of the Gripple tensioner.
3. Remember to leave enough wire protruding so you can apply tension later. Repeat this process at the other end of trellis.
Tip: You will need to roughly trim your wire before placing second tensioner, always over estimate as you can trim to size later.
4. To tension remove any slack and pull the tail wires at each end, the tensioners internal gripping mechanism will lock your nylon wire securely, for extra tension you can use a pair of pliers to pull the tail wire. Once happy with the tension you can trim the tail ends to approximately 8cm, for a neat and tidy finish.
