E Z Tomato Cage Facts and Install:
The 59” E Z Tomato Cage legs are made of galvanized tubular steel with six high tensile wire hoop supports. Using a 24” 3 wire hoop extension will give you a total of nine hoop supports. The legs of the E Z Tomato Cages are 11/16” in diameter that stabilize the cage in place with a total surface area of 58 sq. inches in contact with soil when inserted into the ground at a depth of 9 inches. Your soil should be tilled and prepared prior to inserting the cage into the soil. Push legs into the soil about 8 to 10 inches. Use a rubber mallet or pound on a board to protect the tops of the legs where the extensions insert into the cages taking care not to damage the tops of the legs where the extensions insert.
The tubular legs slide around the high tensile wire to store flat. When flat, E Z Tomato Cages are less than 1” thick. If storing over winter outside, lay flat or hang upside down so water will not collect and freeze in the chiseled end of the legs.
