Reel-Tites and Earth Anchors
How Do They Work?
2. Place the barbed, rusty, smooth, or high tensile wire between the pegs. Make sure the wire is not too thick. You will see the pegs once it’s secured to the handle, and they’re sticking out from the front of the Reel-Tite.
3. Hold the wire against the Reel-Tite between the pegs and start spinning in a clockwise direction.
4. Hook the wire into one of the out-turned flange hooks outside the Reel-Tite when it achieves the correct tension. There are four hooks on the Reel-Tite and eight hooks every turn. Almost anywhere your wire gets tight, there's a hook.
5. For the bottom wire: Because the handle is free to turn, simply raise the end of the handle to complete the circle without getting into the ground.
6. Reel-Tites also make broken wire repairs swift and easy. Just splice a piece of wire at the break, secure it with a Reel-Tite two or three feet down the fence line, and wind up the slack.
7. If your wire becomes slack in the future due to expansion, contraction, weather, and other factors, then simply retighten it.
