Stainless Steel Wire Plant Support Kit

Make your own...

Get creative... You can make your own bespoke plant training wire kit to suit your own design.

Below we have listed all the individual components required, so you can add as many extra supports and end fittings you need.

Tip: For each single wire rope run we recommend using an eye bolt for each end, a minimum of two wire rope grips at each end and a turnbuckle to apply tension, you can add extra eye bolts for support on very long runs of wire.

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.

Screw the eye bolts onto the mounting surface

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.
3mm wire rope X=120mm, 5mm wire rope X=200mm.

Thread wire rope through eye bolt to form a loop

4. Attach Wire Rope Grips

Secure the wire rope loop by using the wire rope grips.

Attach wire rope grips

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

B: Second grip is placed to create a loop, 3mm Wire Rope Y=45mm, 5mm wire rope Y=75mm.

C: On 5mm wire rope, a third grip should be placed between A and B.

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.

Unscrew the turnbuckle so it is half engaged

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.
3mm wire rope X=120mm, 5mm wire rope X=200mm.

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

7. Secure Wire Rope with Wire Rope Grips

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

Secure wire rope in place with 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 with the turnbuckle

Hand Held Wire Cutters for a neat and tidy cut.

This is really good quality equipment and should last for years compared with the standard garden wire and vine eyes that you can buy from retail outlets. Its early to say but I'm pretty confident it will stand up to the autumn gales and prevent 20 feet of climbing rose from being ripped from the wall yet again!

High-quality product, relatively easy to install. (The small nuts on the grips were a bit tricky - it would have helped if I'd had the correct-sized spanner). I expect the cables to last for years.

Good quality training kits. Wire looks sturdy and plenty of fixings that I've used to train a set of fruit tree cordons. All components look well made and the 5m wires were all slightly over length which was useful
