Gripples are used to connect two ends of monofilament wire in order to add strength and stability to the deer fence. This gripple fence part connects the two ends of 8 gauge monofilament wire. It is easy to use. Simply insert the end of the 8 gauge wire into either side of the gripple. The gripple fence piece will automatically grab and secure the monofilament wire ends without releasing them. Use the gripple tightening tool to pull and tighten the monofilament wire.
