Designed to address the most stringent regulatory codes, this commercial grade hog ring pliers ensures uninterrupted operation to quickly install extra secure Malco 9 Ga. (3.8 mm) collated aluminum rings or exclusive 9 Ga. (3.8 mm) collated steel rings anywhere along a chain link fence. Long handles save time and effort with plenty of leverage and reach. The 25-count strips of collated rings can be loaded into the pliers’ symmetrical magazine from either direction. A plunger feed automatically sets up each ring. There is no need to manually rotate the magazine out of the way as the pliers’ clinching mechanism brings the ring forward of the nose for easy access to tension wire and fence. The magazine easily folds down for safe and easy storage of tool.

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.
Can Malco’s 9 gauge galvanized hog rings be used to join 6 gauge sheep and goat panels (4” x 4” opening)?
It would fit through the opening of the ring, but it might not work well to will wrap around the two pieces of 6 gauge.
