Speed Brace Cable by Gripple
For speed and convenience, the Speed Brace Cable is a Premier favorite when installing H Braces on any high-tensile (HT) fence.
- Includes: 1 Gripple and 1-16 ft cable
- Cable: 5/32" x 16'
- Breaking strength 1320 lbs
- Manufactured by Gripple
- Pass the loop around the lower end post. Slide the cable end through it.
- Slide Gripple over the cable.
- Pass the end around the top of the brace post and back through Gripple.
- Use the Gripple Tensioning Tool and it's done.
Note: We use 8' braces at Premier.
H Brace Mistakes
- Angles formed by horizontal bar, end post and brace wire are wrong. Result? The end post lifts up as you see to the right. Solutions? Either lower the brace bar or use a longer cross bar (10 ft or more). We now use an 8 ft long post as a brace bar but we set it only 36" above the soil. The brace wire attaches at the same 36" point.
- End post too small and/or not buried deep enough. For fences 3 to 4 ft tall, use 8" diameter end posts. Drive or set them 4 ft deep.
- Using floating braces. Regrettably we tried this design. They all ultimately failed.
- Live wires touching brace wires. When this occurs, as it does when posts move (like those shown at right have done), contact will occur and the fence will short out.

Loved them at first, but 3 years later the gripple starts failing. Such a pain to have to go back and redo my braces after these pieces of sh!t started failing apart. The internal locking mechanism just completely falls out of the gripple.

These are very nice when assembling an H-brace or corner brace. No more twisting wire, just torque tight.

Greatest thing since sliced bread! Cheap and fast to install. It’s hard to believe how tight you can get these with the little plastic handle torque tool! Worth every penny and then some.

Best thing ever. Stays tight.

These work! Cable ends are never frayed and fit through the tensioner every time.
