TIPS

Use 7' or 8' T-Post in corners, drive in 2' - 3' so post is in ground same as wood post. (If 7' or 8' T-posts are unavailable you can drive two posts back to back with one post deeper.)
If T-post turns in the ground causing misalignment, take a pipe wrench and connect to T-post at ground level. Then slowly twist T-post back into proper alignment.
For heavy pulls, use a diagonal brace wire (opposite direction of brace) and tie the brace post to brace wire where they cross in center.
Install bottom wire first. For additional strength use cross wires.
On main corner & end posts, wrap wires alternately, first one direction, next the other direction, to prevent post from twisting.
On the brace T-post, remove spade with hammer. To adjust tension on brace if it's too loose or tight, tap one or the other up-right post deeper into the ground.
For strength and stability when using horizontal brace follow with a diagonal brace. T-posts will lean when wire is stretched with only a horizontal brace.

  IF NEEDED:     This will give you a longer post in the ground, for use mainly if 7-8' posts are not  available or if your soil is extremely loose. For more strength in the corners, double posts by putting T-Posts back to back, as shown in diagram, wire together with one post higher to hold collar for Wedge-loc bracing system.
