find your hook length
Hook and Wicket Trellising System
Hook length is based on the distance from the ground to your trellsing support wire or pipe. Use the chart to find the ideal hook for your situation. Wickets are based only on bed width.
For 30 inch Bed you would use a 24" Wicket
For 40 inch Bed you would use a 34" Wicket
You can combine any vine lowering system with wickets which will keep your vines off the ground. Leaning causes stress to the plant and your trellis support. When you incorporate wickets, leaning is unnecessary.
"If your workers are on ladders or step stools when trellising then you are burning money" - Conor Crickmore
Conor switched Neversink Farm to this system more than a decade ago and has never looked back. Conor was looking to greatly increase production of his tomatoes. The major hurdle was that he and the workers were spending far too long trellising and lowering tomatoes every week. The Qlipr system solved that and now in just half a day one person can trellis the entire tomato house which is 100'x30'.
