Can't beat the design of it. If you're working alone, just pull it tight and staple the wire to the post your'e pulling from, then work backwards.

I still use one too. Mines not old. But it’s the same. Works better than anything I know of when you’re down in a branch patching fence behind someone who used a bunch of trees for posts. Also use it a lot on short pulls out in the open.

That's probably some of the wire I put up 40 years ago you're patching on.
