Market leaders in the joining and tensioning of wire

We stock the very popular Gripple products in small bags and full boxes.

Small, medium. large & T-Clip. The gripple tool and contractors tool.

The fundamental principle of a Gripple device is simple: there are two channels, each with an independent locking mechanism. The 'lock' is created by the roller, which is free to move in one direction only and grips the wire as it moves back. This concept allows tension to be applied throughout the life of the wire.

Bracing - In contrast to a traditional brace, the GPAK is easy to handle and can be tensioned and re-tensioned.

Joining - Unlike fiddly knots and crimps, the Gripple Plus is not just a wire joiner, but a tensioner too. Installation is simpler and up to five times faster.

Maintenance and repair - To combat natural ground movement and wire elongation every Gripple product can be tensioned and re-tensioned year after year. For repairs, simply use two Gripple Plus to splice a section of wire into the break and apply tension.

End post termination - The Gripple T-Clip is a revolutionary new way to secure a fence at an end post. It's push-fit mechanism is installed in seconds, without the need to knot line wires.

Tensioning - Gripple tensioning tools allow each line wire to be tensioned individually, optimising the life of the fence. Perfect for on-going maintenance, they allow re-tensioning year after year.

Cross Line Laser Level IMEX LX22

What’s all this about, Imex International has developed new technology in laser diodes to create extremely clear and precise laser lines. Now part of the branded Laser Edge Technology TM tools.
Traditionally line lasers will have a thin laser line when close by and then, the further away the line travels the wider the laser line gets. This is not good as the laser line becomes more and more inaccurate. The LX22 has a great laser line that can be easily seen up to 40M away inside, and has sharp clear, thin lines all the way.

This Imex cross-liner and plumb spot, self – levelling laser has 1 sharp vertical line and 1 horizontal line, plumb up and down spot. Features an excellent magnetic rotating bracket and a pulsating mode for outdoor use with optional detector up to 50m, this is the most efficient cross line laser available giving better results every time. It is the ultimate palm laser. You can also turn the self-levelling function off and create a laser line wherever needed.

The LX22 comes in two options. As a kit which includes a tripod, bracket, target plate and a canvas carry pouch or with just the bracket, target plate and canvas carry pouch.
