Chain link tension


Recommended Posts

We use stretcher bars, but pull it a bit tighter then by hand. We put the stretcher bar in a metre or so back from the post, then we use a top bottom and middle ratchet strap. We tension it a bit with the ratchet straps, then add another stretcher bar where we are going to attach it. As everyone else says though, we don't pull it to tight, but on longish runs we have never got it tight enough by hand, just needs a bit more.

When I say by hand that did include the fact that Rory would have been the tensioner ...! This probable classes it as a bit more than by hand anyone who has meet him would understand ..!
