Tighten the threaded connection of the turnbuckle to apply tension to the wire and, in turn, the fence post. Tighten the turnbuckle until the post is as plumb as possible and no longer moves. Here's the completed repair. It's not the most beau- tiful repair in the world but it's effective, and will keep the fence in shape until we get time to dig out the post base and reinforce it with more concrete.
Replacing a fence can be an expensive and difficult task, but Simpson Strong-Tie offers a line of products designed specifically to help you make some of the most common fence repairs, easily and eco- nomically. The black powder- coated E-Z Mender (FPBM44E) allows easy repair of rotted or damaged 4x4 wood posts installed in concrete or dirt. Made of 12-gauge steel, E-Z Mender reinforces weakened wood posts without having to replace the post or the concrete. Sold individually for use in pairs, the E-Z Mender is driven into the ground at the post base and attached using six HDG nails or screws per part. For more information, visit www.strongtie.
