Zareba® In-Line Wire Strainer

The Zareba® In-Line Wire Strainer increases the tension on the fence wire to about 250 lb. Made of durable steel, these strainers will provide long-lasting tension on the fence.

Placement is Important

Zareba® In-Line Wire Strainers should be installed every 1,500 - 2,500 feet. These strainers should be installed in the middle of a fence span between two corner or in-line posts, ensuring that the tension is anchored properly. Generally, you need one in-line strainer for every 4,000 feet of wire.

Nice Simple Design With Catch That Springs
Apr 16, 2020
Nice simple design with catch that springs. Would also be great for grape / kiwi trellis. The center hub hole could have more of taper to protect from sharp bends, but should be ok as is.

I didn’t realize when I selected this strainer that it has the square axle requiring a wrench to tighten it. The other strainers I’ve used in my fence have the round axle and use the traditional tensioner. Once I got the hang of it, it worked well. The frame is well built and I’ve had no issues with operation.
