Cat Fence Tension Cable Kits

These cat fence tensioning cable kits include everything you need to install cable on a new fence or retrofit an existing fence with tension cable.

Standard kits include collars that slide over the posts. Retrofit post cable collars slide in from the side so you don't need to remove fencing from the posts first.

Kits contain: collars, enough cable for two positions and tensioning connectors. This is usually the top before the no-climb canopy begins and where the poly cat fencing mesh meets the cat fencing bottom wire mesh (usually at 30"). That gives you one cable near the top for structure and another to hogring your bottom wire to (see below). You can also do a top cable and a bottom cable, which helps support the base of a cat fence in uneven terrain.

Not included is a tensioning tool (available separately) which is suggested for 8ga cable kits or large 12ga steel cable fences. Also suggested is a hogringer hand tool with hogrings. Hogrings make circles of galvanized or stainless steel that connect tension cable to cat fencing mesh. We supply a hogringer 9/16 commercial grade tool with hogrings (available separately) or a hogringer 11/16 that comes with 1000 hogrings to start. Both hogringer tools self feed the hogrings; Pull the handle and it advances the rings and makes the ring.

Use 8ga monofilament for any fence fully or partially supported by trees; 12ga black braided steel for all other fences

Note: these tension cable kits are designed for the sides of a cat fence only. They would not be used in the canopy overhang of no-climb cat fences, for example. They are also only designed for us on our 1 5/8 round posts. The post cable collars and parts may work on other cat fence systems, but all other systems use 1 3/8 support posts (thinner in diameter). They most likely do not have the strength to add much tension and you may bend those posts.
