  • Use after splice or on loose wire
  • Will not break old wire
  • Takes up to 6” slack with each bite
  • Works on woven wire


  • UP TO 6" OF SLACK WITH EACH PULL: The Wire tight fence tightener is small and light which makes it easy to use and carry. It takes up to 6 inches of loose fence with each bite and will not break old wire. 
  • PORTABLE & LIGHT: The Wire Tight is 17-in. long, it weighs in at only 3 pounds. Easily hangs off your Fencing Pliers.
  • EASY TO USE: The operator spreads the 2 halves apart so the 2 sets of teeth form a "jaw" over the wire. He pushes the top half of the tool down through the bottom half to bend, not crimp or kink the wire so later breaks are avoided. It works fast - you can tighten a fence line in minutes.

I Love This Tool

This is a tool that makes you say, “where have you been all my life!” I got this tool for Father’s Day and tried it out the past couple of days and it’s right on the money. You see those tools that they say works wonders and you order them and it’s a waste of money. This tool is worth every penny and is an absolute must have for anyone that works with barbed wire. I’ve tightened old rusty 40 year old barbed wire and brand new barbed wire and it does just what they say. I will definitely get friends and family to order these!

Great tool

I've used this to tighten both barbed and non-barbed high-tensile wire. It works great so I don't have to work hard. Sure beats the old way of tightening fence! It doesn't weigh much, but it's built like a tank.
