Great product

Steven Lippa
Strainex with spring gauge

Firstly I’d like to say I was blown away with how quickly I received it. Ordered it on the Monday morning and it was in my hands ion the Tuesday arvo!
The tool itself is everything it promised to be, well built, easy to use even though I’ve been using Hayes style strainers for the last 35 odd yrs. I thought I’d struggle to get used to them but it’s been completely fine, the “ jack the grippers” are in my opinion, the absolute best wire grippers I have ever seen and now used!
So simple and the best part I’ve found is that where the operating parts are located it keeps your palms safer from the wire as I mostly work with barbed

What a great tool. I only wish I'd bought one years ago. Very easy to use and does a top job.

After a tree took out my hinge link fence, after stappling it back up onto the posts, the fence looked terrible. being able to retention the fence with this tool did a fantastic job and looks great too. The Crickler is so easy to use as well. Great product.

Really pleased you like the Crinkler Vaughan and thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Cheers, Ian

I had to cut into a fence, to put a stock gate in, i will add I know nothing about fencing but knew I had to re-tension the wire, and came by this product by luck. …funniest thing the neighbours thought I knew what I was doing..👍Great job

G'day Ryan,
