place wire ties evenly along top rail
Stretch the Mesh
Start at the first post and stretch the mesh up against the post. Starting at the top, weave a tension bar (Image 1) through each "diamond" and through each tension band. The three tension bands should be spaced equally along the height of the post. Roll out the mesh along the outer perimeter of the fence line and temporarily attach wire ties every five or six feet to keep the mesh upright
Stop a few feet short of the fence post to stretch the mesh. This allows room to work the come-along. Run a tension bar down through each "diamond" to the ground. Attach the come-along hook to the tension band's bolt at the terminal post and the other hook to the tension bar (Image 2). Ratchet until the mesh is taut. Once a section has been stretched, cut off the excess length using wire cutters. Repeat until done.
Once all of the mesh has been stretched, go back and place wire ties every five or six feet along the top rail and at least three ties per post (Image 3).
