- 1" wide
- 8.5" long without tension
- Stretches to 35 lb (half compressed)
- Stainless steel—so it won't rust
How to Use
- Attach one end of spring to a terminal insulator. (The P Spring will simply hook over some insulators; for others, you will need to tie the spring to insulators with rope or wire.)
- Attach conductor to other end of spring by taking the loose end of conductor and putting it through open end of spring.
- Pull conductor until spring is 1/3 to 1/2 compressed.
- Run conductor through the loop one more time and tie off.
- Whenever conductor becomes loose, repeat above steps.
However, if you don't have a helper to hold the tension on the rope, you may lose too much tension in the process of getting the RopeLink wrapped around the rope.
Solution: Attach the P Spring to the terminal insulator and loop the rope through it twice. Then pull the rope tight so the P Spring is FULLY compressed. When you get the RopeLink attached, you may have lost some of the tension on the rope, but the P Spring is half compressed just like it should be.

I use these springs with 4.5mm rope and they work great. Keep the line nice and taut and are easy to attach to insulators.

These springs work great for keeping tension on 14ga electric wire. Use a 1/8” wire rope (cable) thimble to attach wire to spring. It keeps the kink out of wire.
I run a smooth wire about 1” below bottom board of my 4 board fence and another between two bottom boards. This keeps dogs and coyotes from crossing fence.
Using tube type insulators behind the trim board on each post makes the wire almost invisible from a distance. Does not detract from the look of a board fence.

The springs I received are so stiff and unyielding that I could barely get the compressed half-way and once they were, they just stuck there providing absolutely no spring action whatsoever. They weren't rusty but even a liberal dose of WD-40 provided no benefit at all. They are completely worthless.

Amazing value. I am using these as tension springs in my cable and pulley steering system in my 1974 Boston Whaler. Marine SS tension springs cost 10 times as much. They work well.

These have worked well for me over the years. They allow for a 'boxing ring' effect in case your animals crash into the fence, or tree limbs fall on the fence. I think they help prevent insulator breakage in case of accidents. Spring = less equipment breaking . They are strong and I've only had 1 out of 30 break during animal accidents.
