The Lockjaw Wire Anchor system is a high quality method of installing wire systems for a range of multi-purpose applications including espaliered fruit trees, climbing plants and flowers. It is used by professional landscapers and is also used by gardeners and home handymen as a DIY solution. It is ideal to use as a support wire for espalier, with its innovative design simplifying the task of keeping wires taut and in place. The system is easy to setup and install yourself using our ‘Do It Yourself’ instruction guide.
The Lockjaw Wire Anchor system can be used for post-to-post wire installations, as well as installations on the face of wooden fencing or walls by using eye screws or our specially designed radial wire guide for fixing. The Lockjaw components are durable and the unique design allows for simple re-tensioning of wire when necessary.
The Lockjaw Wire Anchor system is an easy way to set up espalier – a drill, pop rivet gun and wire cutters are the only 3 tools needed for the job.

Our Starter Kits are designed to get you underway with your first espalier project.
Starter kits are available for post mounting and surface mounting on timber, concrete, brick etc. The surface mounted kits vary to suit light-weight, heavy-duty and diamond espalier projects. To find out whether your project is light-weight or heavy-duty please see details of each in the table below. Each kit contains all the components you will need to set up an espalier framework. This is a cost-effective way to be introduced to the Lockjaw system.
Our Light-weight Starter Kit is ideal for these projects.
Our Heavy-duty Starter Kit is ideal for these projects.
Our Post-Mounted Starter Kit is ideal for these projects.
This creates a stylish pattern when growing vines, such as star jasmine, clematis or bougainvillea. This system can be used for fixing onto timber fences, concrete block, or brick substrates, using screw plugs.
When using the Lockjaw system in coastal environments where corrosive elements such as salt air can affect the durable life of wire, we recommend 2.0mm stainless steel wire rope (this is not braided wire). Both the Anchor Platform and Radial Wire Guides should also be used for more durable fixing.
Should you wish to customise your own project, we have diagrams to help you work out what you need. One is for light-weight projects and the other is for heavy-duty projects. Once you work out what you need, the individual components can be purchased from our online store.

"I am thrilled with the Lockjaw system for our coastal property. I was struggling to find a solution to rusting components - with the Lockjaw system I can be assured of its durability with the use of stainless steel wire. I am also pleased with how the anchors sit out from our wooden fence preventing the need for any additional palings. The customer service was excellent and any questions I had answered quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this system."
