Bear QuikFence® 12/35/12
It can be set up as a Pos/Neg fence. What does this accomplish?It eliminates the need for the soil to carry pulse back to the ground rod—providing superior results when soils are dry. The animal will receive a shock when it touches a positive (“+”) strand and a negative (“-”) strand at the same time. How to set up:
- At the top of the netting, disconnect the 2 stainless steel clips (diagram at right).
- Using a PowerLink connect the lower clip to the ground rod.
- Connect fence lead to the netting’s top clip.
What are Drivable Posts-DP?They can be pounded (brown drive-cap to easily determine which posts are drivable) in with a dead-blow hammer or mallet. Single spike (only) has a flange for support when inserting post.

To InstallThe same “unroll and then unfold” process applies to all electrified nets. However, this net is heavier and post spikes are larger than our other nets (therefore more difficult to push into the soil). Extra supports such as FiberTuff™ step-in posts are useful at corners, curves and ends. You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net.
Even for new users, it takes less than 10 minutes to go from out-of-the-box netting to installed fence. And it’s durable! Nets last over 10 seasons if used and stored properly. (Its mortal enemy is errant lawn mowers!)

Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.
Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing. Ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.
Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
