HD Tension Spring, 103/4” HTSHD 5.75 Long-Tug Spring, 123/4” HTSL 5.75 Insulator for Long-Tug Spring ICP1 0.75 Tension Springs Used for several purposes: to indicate the amount of tension on the wire, to act as a shock absorber, and to keep fence tension more uniform. When the spring is compressed to the first notch, it is under 150 lbs of tension, which is common for electric fences. Non-electric fences require more tension. When the second notch on the drawbar is exposed, there is about 250 lbs of tension on the fence. If the tension is greater, there will be problems with end, corner, bend, and dip posts pulling out of the ground. For short fences, springs allow the wire to give when needed. If you expect your fence to take a lot of abuse from falling trees or branches, tension springs on each wire are recommended. All Kencove springs have a Class 3 galvanized coating and strong drawbars.
