How to Tie a Fence Mesh

Hello everyone, we are Marco from Fenceshop, and today, for our "From Saying to Doing" series, we will show you how to properly tie a fence mesh. In this video tutorial, we will explore in detail the right movements to make and the mistakes to avoid. We have already covered in other videos how many ties are needed, so today we will focus on how to do them correctly.

The Basics of Tying

Let's assume we already have a mesh installed and stretched, ready just to be tied. We will make ties on the horizontal tension wire and on the posts to reveal some little secrets. The important thing is to make a tie at the intersection of the mesh so that it does not slip.

Step-by-Step Procedure

To start, we take our wire and fold it about 2-3 centimeters. Then, we cross it diagonally, taking the corner, the tension wire, and the intersection of the mesh together. A small fold of the wire will be enough to be able to grab it with the pliers at a distance of about one or two centimeters and make the necessary twists to complete the tie. Two or three twists will be sufficient for a correct tie.

Common Mistakes

A common mistake is holding the pliers too far from the tie, with the wires distant from each other. This makes the job longer and creates a twisted wire that is aesthetically unpleasing and dangerous. If you tie the wires incorrectly, "butterflies" form, which are dangerous and unsightly. To avoid this, it is essential to keep the pliers at the right distance from the tie, about one centimeter, and make two or three twists with the wires close together.

Double Ties

Double ties are more robust and are made at the posts, especially with TR posts. In this case, we double the wire and cross it, taking the tension wire and the horizontal wire of the mesh. We leverage with the pliers on the post to pull the wire tight and complete the tie. Again, two or three twists will be sufficient.


We repeat this process for the entire length of the wire. As you have seen, just a few simple tips are enough to correctly tie a fence mesh. If you have other methods or want to know how to tie with a machine, let us know in the comments. We might make another video on this topic.
