Nice Simple Design With Catch That Springs By DB33
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 would recommend/buy again By Peeps

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.
