What are stays in fencing?

Fence stays are metal wires or rods that are used to support and stabilize barbed wire fences. They are typically made of galvanized steel to resist rust and corrosion. Fence stays are spiraled or twisted to create a tight fit around the barbed wire. They are then attached to the fence posts with staples or screws.

Are fence stays necessary?

Fence stays are not necessary for all fences, but they are essential for barbed wire fences. Barbed wire is heavy and can sag or droop over time, which can make it less effective at keeping animals out. Fence stays help to keep the barbed wire taut and evenly spaced, which makes it more secure and less likely to be damaged by animals or weather.

How long should fence stays be?

The length of fence stays will vary depending on the height of the fence and the type of fencing material being used. As a general rule, fence stays should be long enough to reach from one fence post to the next.

How do you install wire fence stays?

To install wire fence stays, you will need the following materials:

  • Fence stays
  • Staples or screws
  • Wire cutters
  • Hammer

Here are the steps on how to install wire fence stays:

  1. Cut the fence stays to the desired length.
  2. Attach the fence stays to the fence posts with staples or screws.
