The Gripple Plant Support System is a new trellising system that creates highly tensioned wires for maximum support of climbing plants.
The Gripple does not rot or rust and is easy to use. Perfect for climbing crops like beans, tomatoes and cane fruits or ornamentals like roses, Jasmine, wisteria and clematis.
The plastic Gripples remove the need for twisting and knotting of the wire. They have serrated rollers which allow the wire to pass smoothly though in on direction only. If any load is applied in the opposite direction, the rollers bite, locking the wire in place.
No sharp ends
Tensions easily by hand
The Starter Kit Contains: 30m of nylon gripple wire and 4 Gripples.
The Gripple system will support up to 100 kg / 220 lbs of load.
The nylon trellis wire is UV stabilised so it won't deteriorate in sunlight and will last for about 15 years. There is no metal at all, so nothing to rust!
The Gripple itself is made from nylon, which is reinforced with glass-fibre, and inside there is a ceramic gripping mechanism and stainless steel springs, so again, nothing can rust.
This makes it ideal for use both outdoors and indoors, especially in humid glasshouses.
