Answer: 
I have no picture of what you are doing. However, wire of this type is usually tightened using a tensioner unit with about 300 lbs of tension applied with a spring. The wire should be put up on wood using barbed staples that will not wiggle out of place. Do not use the staples tightly against the wire, it should hold the wire in place without pressure against the wire. Think loop to hold vertically Read More

You can use a tension block just about anywhere, not necessarily at the end. You can put a tension block just about anywhere. I use Model# 200036, Model# 385369 and the tension handle Model# 345121

Answer: 
If you aren't an experienced welder, then you shouldn't attempt to weld anything that is galvanized. Hearing the zinc that is used in the galvanizing process lets of fumes that can make you extremely sick.

Answer: 
The wire is to be secured to the fence post by using something such as a Tension strap such as Model # 328524C or Model # 328528C and a bolt and nut such as Model # 328502C. If you are not using enough line posts, it may be a little flimsy. Average post distance is 10 ft.
You will also need to pull tension on the wire with a tool such as a farm jack Model # TR8485 or a Come Along such as Model # Read More

Loop the end at the tension strap at one end, feed through the chain link alternating sides. Like lacing a shoe. Then clamp to the tensioning device (Vice Grips will suffice), pull tight, and wrap the free end at the next Tension strap. Let go of the tension and the Tension wire is secured. Read Less

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought two 170ft wires and used it to make two rounds surrounding my large veg garden (above the 4ft cow fence at bottom). Very strong for deer. easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I have used this wire on two different fences in the last five years and the wire shows no sign of corrosion on the even the oldest fence. When stretched properly, it keeps the bottom of chain link fencing from being pushed in or out. Otherwise a medium size dog can easily defeat your fence without even digging. You will need to use hog rings to fasten it to the fencing. Regular pliers will close the rings, but a hog ring pliers is a real time saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good wire for grape trellis I picked this up to make a grape vine trellis for my wife. The wire was ok, but I had to muddle through many before I found a bundle that was not opened. I've had bad luck with opened packaging and did not want to risk being shorted on length. Overall, it's ok wire, incredible how the price of wire, even non-copper have gone up in price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product but can only use for certain types of applications I put up 4ft chain link around my yard and intended on using this as a tension wire. This stuff is way too thick for that purpose. Good quality wire, but I would not recommend for average homeowner using on your average chain link fence. I wound up returning and getting the smaller gauge wire.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok. I opted to use Barnes wire, it was easier to make longer runs without splicing or wasting pieces that were too short.
