The original intent of the clip or “hook” was for apple tree support and irrigation lines, but it is by no means limited for this purpose. Our products are being successfully used for other fruit trees, along with berry canes and vines.
We manufacture a large and small hook. The wire used for the hooks contain a special galvanized coating that bonds to the metal at the atomic level. Because of this, the clips are corrosion resistant for many years allowing them to be reused.
Ease of Use
Using the hook is very efficient. It requires only one hand to attach the clip or “hook” to the trellis wire, leaving the other hand free to support the tree in its place.
Once connected to the wire, the hook keeps the tree standing firm, even when windy. Not only is it easy and fast, the hook is more economical than other products on the market. Since the time spent in the orchard is reduced, labor costs are lower.
No tools are required or recommended for using the clip. Removal of the hook is just as easy when removing trees or switching hook sizes for larger trees.
Since 2010, we at Evans Manufacturing Company have been producing the Universal Trellis Clip in Arlington, WA, continuing Ludwig’s business mission that farmers have the products they need to do their job efficiently when they need them.
Our clips are used around the world and have given farmers the competitive edge they need in today’s world market
