These gripples are used to connect two ends of our 12 gauge monofilament wire together. Simply place each monofilament wire end into the holes on either side of the gripple. The gripple will automatically grab and secure the monofilament wire ends without releasing them. We recommend using our gripple tightening tool to tighten the monofilament wire using the ratcheting action of the gripple.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
