- Will work for twine, narrow tape, rope, MaxiShock and braid.
- Does not work for high-tensile wire.
- Hook ring end into a P Spring.
- Insert rope through other end and through hole on center bolt.
- Hold tail of rope to secure it and twist black knob on the side.
- Once the tail of rope is secured, let go and continue twisting knob until desired tension is reached. P Spring should be half compressed.
- To loosen or remove conductor from the tensioner: unscrew the knob on the side to release.

Like Allen T, the spring on the end of the ratchet broke on the first 2 of these that I used. The first one broke one the first time that I used it. The second 1 the second time I tightened the fence. This was in 90F temps. In cold weather I suspect these will break more easily. The plastic is too brittle. When they break the whole thing comes apart making the fence useless. I would pay more for one that actually works. Premier needs to retest and correct this.

Not so good. On the other side of the ratchet twister is a very weak "nut" that holds the ratcheting mechanism together. When it breaks the whole assembly fails. Not something you want on a ranch with miles of fencing. Maybe ok on a smaller place where you pass by it every day. If the nut gets improved this could be a good item as it is a clean installation and a time saver.

These are awesome! They are stiff to tighten, but, the electric rope isn't slipping a tiny bit! I've been thru 3 different tightened...nothing held! But these hold great! My only complaint is that there is a part that screw on the side. A number of them were really loose coming out of the bag. You have to manually tighten them before putting them up. Otherwise they fall off...and get lost. Then they are useless. But that is my only complaint. I won't buy any other tensioner in the future...these are "it" for me.

These are great - they're made of plastic, so they both tension and insulate. If you attash them to the spring you don't need another insulator. If you do want the spring to be energised - just leave a bit of the rope out and tie it to the spring, then make a loop and run the loop the tensioner, rather than the very end of the rope. Also, personally I didn't think they were difficult to tighten and I'm no athlete.
