For many farmers, the word "Goldenrod" is interchangeable with "fence stretcher," as multiple generations have relied on these versatile and dependable tools to help them quickly stretch, splice, staple, raise, and draw down fencing wire.

Stretch wire: Wire stretching is an easy task when you position one of the stretcher's hooks on a post and the other to draw the wire to the post. The hook will remain fast to the smallest post or the largest tree until released.

Splice wire: The tool's hooks take up slack from both ends of the wire and hold them in place, so both of your hands are free to make a splice. The ends are held firmly in place until the tension is released.

Staple wire: The stretcher holds the wire tightly in place around a fence post so it can be stapled.

Raise wire: Position the stationary hook of the tool on top of a fence post to raise wire fencing over hills or other obstructions.

Draw down wire: The stretcher can be used for drawing wire down to a "deadman" as when stretching fence over wash cuts, draws, creeks, etc.

What's the difference between Goldenrod fence stretcher-splicer models?

The standard model 400 has been around since the 1970s. Several design improvements have been made along the way, but the concept is the same. The stationary hook holds the wire in place while the ratcheting traveler hook "climbs" the bar. To accomplish this, the traveler must pivot to allow the stationary hook to engage, and the release is abrupt. The special cast guides will hold high tensile and standard wire, whether smooth or barbed.

Model 405 is identical to the 400, except for one additional feature- a controlled release holding ratchet, which allows for a more gradual release of tension that reduces line breakage.

The 415 Hired Hand® fence stretcher-splicer allows you to pull up an unlimited amount of slack in the wire while maintaining tension with a continual clamping motion. When the ratcheting traveler hook is released in order to get another "bite" of wire, the extra stationary hook holds the wire tight and securely. Whereas the 400 and 405 tools can stretch a few feet without having to be secured, model 415 is limitless.
