    A few weeks ago I saw a post about a hand tool and small clamps you can use to connect hardware cloth. I have searched everywhere and cannot find it. I may be calling it by the wrong name. We are building runs and need to connect the hardware cloth so if any one remembers this I would appreciate a post or message and thanks in advance!

    I can't think of what they're called either, but check out jump rings or wire clasps. Good luck I know I didn't help much Sorry.

    J-clips is what they are. Got mine a long time ago and it was either at the feed store or the local hardware store. I'm sure you could find a source on-line now that you know what you are looking for!

    you could also use hog rings; any decent hardware store should have them.

    I bought my J-clips and J-clip pliers from Klubertanz equipment company - they have a website, you'd have to google it.

    They have some great heavy-duty cage wire, too. I've been a customer since I was a teenager building my first rabbit cages.

    Good luck!

    You can by the J-clips and tool at TSC and the Co-Op. TSC is the worst about keeping the clips in stock so we sometimes order them from Tek Supply. They are heavier-duty clips than the ones we get from TSC.
