Goldenrod 405 Fence Tool
For many farmers, the word "Goldenrod" is interchangeable with "fence stretcher," as multiple generations have relied on these versatile and dependable tools to help them quickly stretch, splice, staple, raise, and draw down fencing wire.
Wire stretching is an easy task when you position one of the stretcher's hooks on a post and the other to draw the wire to the post. The hook will remain fast to the smallest post or the largest tree until released.
The tool's hooks take up slack from both ends of the wire and hold them in place, so both of your hands are free to make a splice. The ends are held firmly in place until the tension is released.
The stretcher holds the wire tightly in place around a fence post so it can be stapled.
Position the stationary hook of the tool on top of a fence post to raise wire fencing over hills or other obstructions.
Draw down wire:
The stretcher can be used for drawing wire down to a "deadman" as when stretching fence over wash cuts, draws, creeks, etc.
