The Gripple Torq Tensioning Tool is manufactured by Gripple®, a world leading manufacturer of wire-joining & tensioning systems.
Under tensioning and over tensioning wire can shorten the life of trellis wire significantly. Often wire is over tensioned, reducing the elastic properties of the wire, resulting in shortening the wire's life and, ultimately early wire breakage. Using the Gripple Torq Tensioning Tool to tension Gripple Wire Tensioners / Joiners (part code 90094, etc. - available separately) and Gripple No.1s (part code 90140 - available separately) helps to maximise the working life of wire. The tool not only tensions the wire but regulates the load applied too, delivering consistent results each time. See the video in the YouTube tab below below for an animation of the Torq Tensioning Tool in use.
The Torq Tool is also required to tension the GPAK3 PLUS Anchoring Kit for Metal End Posts (part code 90294 - available separately) & the GPAK3 PLUS Anchoring Kit for Wooden End Posts (part code 90293 - available separately).

NB If purchasing Gripple Wire Tensioners/Joiners and 50+ Gripples are required, it is more economical to purchase the Gripple Starter Packs; (part codes 90078, etc.) or the Gripple Tool Deals (part codes 90075, etc.) - both options include the Gripple Torq Tensioning Tool.
