Customised Light-Weight Surface Mount

Using the Lockjaw system for surface mounted espalier

Use the diagram below to plan your job to work out which components you will need and the quantities of each. The light-weight installation is for home landscaping and gardening projects such as a growing framework for vegetables (tomatoes, beans, peas), a privacy screen using vines (star jasmine, clematis, bougainvillea) or support for climbing plants (roses, passion fruit vines), using 2.0mm soft wire and mounting in timber substrates.

Note, that when fixing onto brick or concrete substrates, use the heavy-duty installation method.

Installation of straight run single wire.
