  • 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.
