The basic wire plant support kit allows you to easily form a wide range of ambitious plant training layouts to your own design.

All fittings supplied are designed to work together and are manufactured from high quality, long lasting 316 marine grade stainless steel making it perfect for your garden or any outdoor application.

This versatile system can be used to form a lattice as part of a pergola or canopy -

  • For woody vines or plants such as Wisteria
  • A green wall system for training of Ivy
  • As part of a decorative façade
  • Grapevine supports for your vineyard
  • An espalier for fruit bearing trees

or just about any plant support applications you could desire - the only limit is your imagination!

  • Robust 6mm x 60mm wood thread vine eyes to guide the cable
  • 5mm Hook-Eye turnbuckle strainer to quickly tension the system once in place.

Installation Advice

Installation Overview

Preparation

Support wires should be put in place prior to planting.

The wood thread eye bolts or vine eyes - which act as the main wall fixings in this system, are designed to easily screw into any timber surface, although they will also fix perfectly in to masonry with the addition of a plastic plug (not supplied).


1. Getting Started

It is a good idea to layout your design onto the relevant surface with a pen or chalk. Once fixing points have been marked out, drill pilot holes for the wood screw thread eye bolts.

Drill Pilot Holes

2. Attach the Eye Bolts

Screw the vine eye bolts onto the mounting surface. Remember if mounting onto masonry use a plastic rawl plug for a secure hold.

Attach Eye Bolts

3. Thread Wire Rope to Form a Loop

Thread one end of the stainless steel wire through one eye bolt, so that it loops back on itself. We recommend approx 120mm of turn back.

Thread Wire Rope through Eye Bolt

4. Attach Wire Rope Grips

Secure the wire rope loop by using two wire rope grips. We recommend using the rope grips in pairs to provide as secure a connection as possible.

Attach Wire Rope Grips

A: Place the first grip furthest away from the loop.

B: Second grip is placed to create a loop of 45mm.

Attach Wire Rope Grips

Unscrew the locking nuts to remove the U shaped bar.

Simply place the live end into the saddle of the body and the U-Bar over the dead end of the wire rope.

Replace locking nuts and tighten evenly using a wrench or spanner.


5. Prepare the Turnbuckle

We recommend starting with each end of the turnbuckle half engaged to start with, this is so you can apply tension to the wire rope once fitted. Simpy rotate the central strainer body to release the hook and eye ends of the turnbuckle.

Prepare The Turnbuckle

6. Attach Wire Rope to the Turnbuckle

Hook the half engaged turnbuckle into the opposite eye bolt.

Thread the dead end of the wire rope through the eye of the turnbuckle and loop back on itself. Again we recommend approx 120mm of turn back.

Using a good set of wire cutters, trim the wire to provide neat and tidy finish.

Attach Wire Rope To The Turnbuckle

7. Secure Wire Rope with Wire Rope Grips

Repeating step 4 - Secure the wire rope loop by using two wire rope grips.

8. Apply Tension

To create the wire tension simply rotate the central body of the strainer until you have the required tension. It is important that you do not allow the wire rope to be twisted as you tighten the turnbuckle.

Apply Tension

The Essential Partner

Hand Held Wire Cutters for a neat and tidy cut.
