Product Overview

  • Eliminates struggles with unrolling rolled wire fencing
  • Keeps rolled wire from rolling back on your hands and face
  • Creates a professional looking finished product
GenTap introduces a simple tool to solve the long suffered problem of unrolling rolled wire fencing. Using rolled fencing is a challenge because it does not straighten out as you remove it and tends to roll back on the user, often nicking their hands and arms and risking damage to the eyes. The application of the fence looks wavy and uneven since the bend is still in the wire. The GenTap Fence Straighter solves that problem quickly and easily. The Fence Straightener flattens and straightens chicken wire and hardware wire used for animal pens, chicken coops and general fencing by rolling the wound fencing through 3 wood rollers on a metal bracket that take the bend out of the wire by bending it back to its original straight condition.
  • Works great on stucco wire, chicken wire and hardware fencing rolls
  • Contains: 2 galvanized stakes, 2 galvanized brackets, pre-drilled dowels, and 6 screws for assembly
  • Easy assembly with all necessary items included
  • Flattens fence wire with ease and reduces risk of injury
  • Creates a more professional looking project
  • Offered in 36 in. and 48 in. models

Straight Fence 4 ft. Fence Straightener for Chicken Wire and Hardware Cloth Fencing is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.

My husband has talked about making something like this for a long time, and I send kudos to the people who finally did it! Yes, you could make your own, but somebody else already did. We have chickens in an area with raccoons and dogs-at-large, both of whom have killed chickens in the past, so we need our chicken coop and chicken yard fenced like Fort Knox. This was fairly easy to use - if you’re using 36” wire on the 36” straightener it’s tough to keep it exactly aligned - but it works very well for straightening/tightening the chicken wire if you use it carefully. Note to those who have a similar chicken situation as us: Wrap the chicken wire not only around your chicken yard, but also dig down into the surrounding soil (in our case, about 1’) and bury chicken wire there to prevent determined predators from digging their way into your coop.

When I got my,3 foot Wire fence straightener from Home Depot that is made by GenTap LLC. at first I said how will it work? As it consists of 3 wooden rods 3 ft. long, 6 screws, 2 Huge Nails 10" long and two metal brackets. However when I assembled it together, and put my 3 ft. roll of Hardware cloth into the assembly, You weave the wire cloth between this assembly, I was shocked to see it inaction, it truly straightened out my hardware cloth. I do a lot of DYI projects with Hardware cloth only it to spring back at you and cut my face and hands. In the past it was a pain but now Home Depot has this Great product that they sell made by GenTap and it really does work as it makes the rolled hardware cloth Straight so that YOU can cut it with ease. You can also use this to straighten out Chicken wire as I to use this product in my DYI projects. Thanks GenTap and Special Thanks to Home Depot for once again coming to my rescue

I don't know if you've ever worked with chicken wire or not, but if you have, you know it is a pain. The fencing constantly rolls back up, gets stuck together, creases and folds (undesirably) easily, and it is often difficult to get a smooth, flat application with chicken wire. This gadget may not look like much, but it made working with chicken wire (and goat wire for that matter) easily 10 times easier to work with. It prevented the chicken wire from doing all of the aggravating things I just mentioned, while also preventing it from rolling back up, making the job get done much faster with a lot less headache. We even used it to install goat wire around our goat enc's light weight and easy to carry around the farm, from project to project. It is very affordable and well made. Great invention, wish I would have thought of it!

I got this straight fencing tool to re-straighten my chicken wire fence that has been up for 8 years which has a wavy look to it and the edges are curving outwards. This tool comes unassembled with directions that were easy to follow and the holes in the wood rollers lined up perfectly. Definitely wear gloves using this tool while straightening out chicken wire that can cut very easily. This fence straightening tool worked perfectly on straightening out my chicken wire and it also got rid of the turned in and bent edges. This tool is great and saved me from purchasing new chicken wire.

I couldn't test this out on the ground - we have a lot of snow right now but was able to, with a helper, manually run it trough it's paces. Since flat wire is bent when spooled on a roll, it can get back to that flat memory by using physics. In the roll straightener, the wire is maneuvered or pulled through a course around wooden dowels. The wire is bent past its elastic point and then redirected to a straightened state. More or less, that's the theory. It wasn't easy to perform this function manually but it can work because the two end rollers are the forward direction guides and the middle roller is actually doing the unbending. You can test this out by pushing down on the fencing over the middle roller and feel it grab and move forward to a straighter surface. This is a very unique item and doing some research, GenTap is the only manufacturer of this simple kind of device. Of course if you have lots of pasture fencing, this wouldn't be practical. But it would be easy to do say a small yard or enclosure fence. Keep the box if you are not going to use this alot. It is easy to assemble and disassemble. Instructions are clear.

The instructions for the four foot fence straightener were clear and easy to follow. I own some acreage in the country where I have some farm animals. I do not currently have any chickens but I plan to get some eventually. I wanted to have secure fencing for them before getting them so this product was perfect for my needs.It is high quality and lightweight. It made installing the fencing a lot easier and it is sturdy too. Now all I need are my chickens!

FENCE STRAIGHTENER FOR CHICKEN WIRE AND HARDWARE CLOTH FENCING comes unassembled and is easily put together in just a few minutes. I suggest purchasing the 4'-0" wide version even if you are straightening 36" wide wire so the wire cloth does not get hung on the sides while straightening. This tool takes all the pain out of putting up a straight chicken wire fence. This tool is great! Super easy!!
