Extend the turnbuckle's eye and hook by unscrew- ing the threads. Predrill a pilot hole for the lag screw eye at your mounting point. The mounting point must be sta- ble and secure. I used the base of the next fence post as the mounting point, and screwed in an eye
I've learned that "don't saddle a dead horse" is a common saying among tradespeople who attach a lot of wire nuts for a living. What is the "saddle" of a wire nut? It's the metal bracket between the U-bolt and the nuts. What's the "dead horse"? It's the short length of wire that loops back through a steel eye. "Don't Saddle a Dead Horse" is a guideline to avoid clamping the saddle part of the wire nut over the wire turnback. Instead, you should orient the wire clip so the saddle clamps against the main run of wire, and the U- bolt clamps against the turnback. The reason is that once you use a wrench to torque down the wire nut, the U-bolt will kink the wire. Over time this kink can lead to damage or even breakage. If that happens, you want the turn- back to break and not the load-bearing main wire. Therefore, "Don't Saddle a Dead Horse" anytime you're clipping steel wire. DON'T SADDLE A DEAD HORSE
