Catenary Wire Kit Installation

Need some help?

Download and print our installation advice sheet for the DIY Catenary Wire Kit.

Installation is straight forward with the use of a few household tools. You will need a drill, spanner, wire cutters and some chalk.

1. Before starting you should mark your fixing points using chalk, checking that your path between these points is free from obstructions such as overhanging branches etc...


Drill And Clean Fixing Hole

2. Drill your fixing holes and ensure that the holes are free from dust and debris. We recommend using a small brush and/or an air pump to perform this action.


Using Chemical Anchor Capsule

3. Once you have done this simply insert one chemical anchor resin capsule into each hole.

Insert your eye bolt, breaking the seal of the foil capsule to release the anchor resin.
Remember to twist the eye bolt into place to ensure total coverage to provide a good solid fixing.


Allow Chemical Anchor To Set

4. Leave the resin to set solid, making sure the eye bolt is flush to the wall surface.


Thread Wire Through Eye Bolt

5. We do not recommend cutting your wire cable to length at this point, as it can be trimmed to the correct length later on - Simply thread one end of the cable through the eye of your first eye bolt bringing it back on itself.


Wire Rope Grip Installation

6. Using 3 wire rope grips - secure the wire cable to create a fixed loop.

Starting approximately one grip base width in from the dead end of your rope place the U-bolt over the dead end and attach the grip base. Apply the fixing nuts - taking time to alternate between the two nuts as you tighten to ensure an even fixing.

Ensure you have spaced the grips evenly, making sure you have taken up any slack in the rope between the two end grips before tightening your additional rope grip. If you require further information about wire rope grips please click here...


Thread Wire Through Eye Of Turnbuckle

7. Lead the loose end of wire over to the opposite fixing point. Attach the turnbuckle to the eye bolt (remembering to open the turnbuckle halfway - so that you can fully tension the wire by tightening the turnbuckle). Thread the dead end of the wire through the eye of the turnbuckle and tension as much as possible by hand.


Wire Rope Grip Installation

8. Using 3 wire rope grips secure the wire rope in the same manner as step 6.


Tension The Wire Using The Turnbuckle

9. Simply tighten the turnbuckle to achieve the desired wire tension.
