A range of barrel strainers available in M4, M5, M6 and M8 in both galvanised and stainless steel. These professional fixing tools are used to adjust the tension in wire rope assemblies, for example, when creating a netting frame. With screw hook and eye.

Available in packs of 10, these hooks are made for use with our bird netting.

Installing Bird Netting:

Drill holes and fit corner fixings where the net turns a corner. Drill holes and fit intermediate fixings at 1m intervals in a straight line between the corner fixings. Run 10m of wire rope through the fixings of one side.
Attach one end of the wire rope to a corner fixing by looping the wire then secure with 2 ferrules (each crimped twice) or 2 wire rope grips. Run 10m of wire rope through the fixings of one side. Hook an open barrel strainer to other corner fixing, thread the free end of the wire through the eye of the barrel strainer pull the rope tight. Secure with 2 ferrules or wire rope grips, then close the strainer to tighten rope.
Repeat steps 3-6 for the other 3 sides. To install the net, attach one corner of the net to the corner fixing using a corner tie. Hog-ring each square to the wire rope, ensure the net is pulled tight and square. Attach the other 3 corners using net corner ties. Trim off any excess net.

For nets larger than 10m x 10m:

The main difference for installing a larger net is that you will need to install corner fixings every 10m to distribute the weight of the net.

You may also need to install additional cross wires to prevent the net from sagging in the middle e.g. 20m x 10m nets.
