Espalar Light Weight Guide
CAUTION : DO NOT FORCE WIRE THROUGH ANCHOR
Gently insert wire using back and forth motion until wire slides comfortably between the locking jaws. 

REQUIRED TOOLS

The only tools you will require to complete this job are a power drill with a hex driver bit (available from our store), 1/8 in (3 mm) drill bit, pop rivet gun and wire cutters.

STEP 1

Plan your job carefully. Measure and markout your mounting points.

STEP 2

Fix Anchor Platforms at beginning and end of the wire run.

STEP 3

Pre-drill holes for eye screws at intermediate fixing points with .12in (3 mm) bit.

STEP 4

Screw eye screws in place being sure that they are in as far as they can go.

STEP 5

Starting at the bottom anchor platform and begin feeding wire, going back and forth along each run, before inserting guide plugs or anchors.

STEP 6

The wire should now be treaded through each end and still sitting loose through the eye screws.

STEP 7

At end point, carefully insert wire through Espalar anchor and push anchor into the platform. Repeat this at the other end, leaving the wire loose until after Step 8. Note caution above.

STEP 8

Before you tension the wire, slip guide plugs onto wire and insert into eye screws. Ensure the direction of the wire follows the groove on the top of the guide plug.

STEP 9

With the guide plugs now in place, tension the wire at the anchor ends using a pop rivet gun. The wire should be just tight enough to remove any sag.

STEP 10

Using your wire cutters, trim wire flush with the Espalar anchor and fit the end cap.

STEP 11

At the other end excess wire is needed for future tensioning if needed. Fit tension cap with the wire protruding then trim flush with end of cap.
