How Many Zip Ties To A Post?

It's easy for fence installers to go zip tie crazy. After all, there are 100 counts of zip ties to a pack. But, what is the average zip tie to post ratio?

Heavy duty zip ties make it easy to attach fence mesh to line posts. When installing a deer fence, it's best to use one zip roughly every foot along the fence post. The same method is applied when attaching self-locking ties to fence gates, corners and end systems. 

A cutter-puller tool can help tighten zip ties and snip off the excess tie on the post. This will create a more presentable look and blend in with the rest of the fence system.
