Pros and Cons of a Fence Tying Pliers

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop, your trusted e-commerce for everything related to fences and meshes. Today, in our "From Saying to Doing" section, we will talk about tying pliers, a tool many of our customers consider indispensable for making fences. But is it really so? Let's analyze it together.

How is a tying pliers made?

When you receive the tying pliers at home, you will find an accessory closed with a simple release to be able to work. It is a pliers equipped with a point and a return spring. The first step is to mount the magazine, which is correctly positioned thanks to a screw. Just unscrew, insert into the magazine hole, position it correctly, and tighten. Once the magazine is fixed with a screwdriver, the pliers are ready to use.

To load the pliers, you will need to remove the magazine and insert a cartridge of omega-shaped clamps. These clamps can be galvanized or plastic-coated galvanized and come in various shapes, but the most common is the omega shape. Insert the cartridge in the correct position, replace the magazine stop and spring, and the pliers are ready for use.

How to use the tying pliers

To make a correct tie, it is essential to align the tension wire to one of the horizontal wires of the mesh. This allows you to position the wire where it is most aesthetic and technically correct. The pliers remain in an open position and, with the magazine facing you, a simple pressure is all it takes to make the tie.

However, this tie presents some disadvantages. It leaves spikes that can rust over time but is very robust and thick. The speed of the pliers is remarkable compared to manual wire tying, reducing work time by about three times. However, the choice between manual tying and pliers depends on your specific needs.

When to use the tying pliers

The tying pliers are particularly useful if you have large lengths of fences to do, such as two or three kilometers. In this case, the investment is easily amortized. However, if you only have a few meters of fence, the expense may not be justified. The cost of a quality tying pliers ranges between 40 and 60 euros, so consider carefully if it is worth it for your project.

Limitations of the tying pliers

Despite its advantages, the tying pliers cannot completely replace the pincers and tying wire. For the main ties around the posts, for example, the pincers remain indispensable. So even if you decide to use the pliers for tying the wires, you will still need the pincers for some parts of the job.


In conclusion, the tying pliers is a great tool for those facing large fence projects, ensuring speed and robustness. However, for small jobs, the pincers and tying wire remain the most economical and versatile choice. We hope you enjoyed this video and we invite you to leave your comments.
