Was looking for a wire to bridge over from our electric fence to our mobile chicken tractor and this wire offered the solution I was looking for. Insulated where it can rest on the ground, but flexible enough to maneuver around the property. I wrapped the stranded wire on the stationary side and on the tractor side installed an alligator clip.

These switches are well designed, and reliable. I have one installed at every gate. The price is very reasonable as well.

Works fine but much easier to strip and use the single strand wire instead of the multiwire cable. I accidently ordered the wrong product.

As always, a superior product from Premier 1. There is no need to price shop it’s the farm stores because I always know I am getting the best and most compatible products here. Instructions and superior customer service make any minor price difference well worth it. This insulated wire is easy to work with and makes a great connection. I have used both types of insulated wire and I prefer this one because it is easy to put in with the fencing wire when securing the ends with the spirals.

Nice to have continual electrical supply at a bit of distance from the plug-in energizer. The only problem I ran into was that the exposed strands corroded after a while and the wire is hard to strip.
