It works pretty well. I stack two cages over each tomato, tying the upper cage to the lower one. Then I just put the wooden strips through the cages where the upper and lower cages meet and then tie the cages to the strip. Because I have the buckets on pallets to keep the fire ants out of them, I also tie the strips to the pallets. It creates one giant, very heavy unit that has never blown over.
