It does however, have its problems;
In the last few years most of these problems have been solved, but not all in one design that was easy and simple to use, So at WIREMAN HQ we set out to solve the problems and the StraineX Wire strainer was created, With it's pair of JACK THE GRIPPERs.
The biggest issues with wire strainers is slipping, so StraineX grips the wire between hardened steel (that also work hardens, so the more you use it, the harder it gets) and replaceable cap screws, so if you do have a problem with plating build up it is easily fixed, by simply replacing the screws. We also placed the spring centrally to get full load transfer to the wire. So it definitely will not slip !
Spring loaded grippers solve the problem of the strainer falling off the wire but we found opening the Jaws of other manufacturers grippers could be made easier and more intuitive. So we designed the JACK THE GRIPPER to work like a pair of pliers.
The decision to use a modern leaver hoist for tensioning was a no brainer because it makes it so easy to put load onto the wire (your Mrs could do it!). And you can use the hoist for other jobs around the farm.
Finally, we live in a modern world where electronic equipment is highly accurate and easily available, so why not use it to set the tension precisely so you get the longest life out of a fence you can. After all, you don't want to do it twice !
