Clip and Go Weave Pole Guide Wires are incredibly easy to use—just snap them on and off your weave poles as needed. They are made of flexible but tough UV-stabilized polypropylene tubing that holds its shape and sturdy snap-on clips that are molded as single pieces. The clips are designed to clip fit any weave pole that is made from standard 3/4" schedule 40 PVC. The clips will slide up or down on the weave poles so that the wires are at the desired height for your dog.
The guide wires are approximately 57" long so they will fit 24" spaced poles out of the box, but they easily can be cut to a shorter length if desired. When you use the guide wires with 24" spaced poles, the channel will be narrower than it would be with poles spaced at a lesser distance. There will be 13" of space between the pole and the widest arc of the wire.
Using the guide wires for the first time requires some minimal assembly; you need to slide a snap-on clip into each end of the poly tubing.
Note: If you are not sure whether your weave poles are made from Schedule 40 3/4" PVC, you can measure the outside diameter of your poles. Despite its name, 3/4" schedule 40 pipe has an outside diameter of approximately 1-1/16" (1.050").

The first time the clips go on your poles is the most difficult; they get easier to take on and off the more you use them.
The easiest way to put them on your weave poles is to hold the clip at a 45-degree angle to the pole, push one corner onto the pole first, and then rotate the clip to get the rest of it on the pole. Don't be afraid of breaking the clip—it will not break.
It will also help if you attach the tubing to the clip first (it gives you more to hang onto).
