Heavy gauge steel construction. All steel main ratchet bar 1-1/4″ wide, 5/16″ thick, 24″ action. 1,000 lb. pull. Yellow Enamel Finish. The Golden Rod Fence Stretcher-Splicer is built for easy operation. The many features allow this tool to be used to splice wire, stretch wire, to hold and staple wire, and to raise wire or draw wire down. When splicing wire, the unit holds the ends in place so both hands are free to make the splice. The unique features allow other operations to be made with one hand when necessary.
