Can other hog rings be used in Malco’s HRP5 Hog Ring Pliers?
No, Malco’s collated HRA5 aluminum and HRS5 steel hog rings for attaching tension wire to chain link fencing are designed specifically to be used only in Malco’s HRP5 Hog Ring Pliers. We do not know of any other hog rings that can be used in Malco’s HRP5.
Do HRA5 and HRS5 hog rings meet government requirements?
Yes, Malco’s hog rings are manufactured with “true” 9 gauge hog ring wire diameter measuring at .148 inches. Many hog rings are marketed as 9-gauge however, they are not manufactured with a full .148 wire diameter. Malco’s steel hog rings have a Class 3 coating in accordance with ASTM A641 and Malco’s aluminum hog rings are made from aluminum alloy 6061-T94 or 5052-H38.
What is unique about the hog ring design?
The overlap clinching creates a more secure connection than a standard side-by-side clinch.
What is the common spacing used when installing the tension wire?
Hog rings are attached tension wire to chain link fencing at a spacing of 12” to 24” mostly commonly every 24”. One box of Malco collated hog rings will secure a 1000’ bale of tension wire to the chain link fence spaced at 24” intervals.
Are there replacement parts available?
No, we have heat treated all of the functional components to give the tool a long life; it also eliminates the need to offer replacement parts.
