Installation

  1. Attach a terminal insulator to end post.
  2. Tie end of the rope to terminal insulator.
  3. Unroll rope along the fence line.
  4. Insert line posts.
  5. Insert rope in the line posts at the right height(s) for your animals.
  6. Attach insulators (preferably notched PI 21n) to corner and end posts.
  7. Tie rope to terminal insulator and spring at far end post. By hand, pull it tight enough to eliminate sagging between posts. Tie off by hand, or use a RopeLink 2.0. (Note: If the length of the fence is 1000' feet or more, use a P Spring at both ends of the fence instead of just of just one.)
  8. Use one of our reels to rewind and store rope.
  9. Install and connect energizer to a ground rod and the fence. Turn on energizer. Check to make sure voltage is over 2000 volts.

A very thick/ heavy duty conductor. Lasts for years as we've never had a problem with it. We're impressed with how tightly wound and rigid it is. It doesn't "stretch" like other conductors so retensioning is not necessary. We like that it is stiff and rigid. We're currently using it in our horse pasture on our home farm.

This IntelliBraid is a great product. It is a quality item, easy to work with, doesn't unravel, is easy for the animals to see and keeps our mules in the fence. We are very happy and impressed with the quality.

Absolutely dissatisfied. Terrible construction. Began coming apart and breaking within the first month I put it up. Had to take it down and use another product.
Ben's result has us a little puzzled as polyester rope (either twisted or braided breakage has never happened on Premier's farms and we rarely hear of user problems with IntelliBraid. Due to his experience we're now keen to know other's results (bad or good) with this product. -- Premier

Durable in weather. After a few years the rope looks and functions like new. Delivers a good shock too.
