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.
Netting must be moved when tall grass covers the lower “hot” strands. The alternative? Apply a strip of herbicide to kill vegetation.
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 netting. We do not recommend the use of electric netting during harsh winter conditions—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.

Nice addition to our PoultryNet Plus 12/48/3 Starter Kit. No problem using it one-handed, squeeze the posts together and lift up the handle. We’ve only been using it for about 2 weeks so we’ll see how long it lasts. I will make one change. I’ll be adding a spike at the bottom so that when I open it, I can stick it in the ground instead of laying it down or leaning it against the fence.

Great gate for our electric netting fence. I like it more than the VossFarming brand I used in the past.

The gate works great, too bad it took over a year to be in stock.

These gates were literally backordered for MONTHS, and when I did finally manage to purchase, only the 8ft gate was in stock and I had to snipe it quick before it could fly out of my cart. The gate works GREAT! It is so much better than having to turn the fence off just to do simple chores. Since my fence is not a complete circuit, then when I disconnect the gate to open it, it means that one side of the fence is no longer hot until I reconnect. I do wish there was a fix for that, but for that reason and the difficulty in keeping in stock are the reasons for taking away one star from my rating. Otherwise, fantastic product!

Update to my 2020 5-star review — the gate handle broke after just a couple of months. I notice they sell replacement handles, so this must not be a rare occurence. Since you lift the gate by the handle, it is a naturally stressed point. The retaining cap falls off, so. the whole handle comes off of its pole.
A simple design fix would be to have the closing mechanism separate from the handle, so that you are lifting the gate pole using a non-movable part, and the more delicate closing mechanism would not be stressed by using it to move the gate pole.
We did not buy a replacment handle ($4 every few months would not make sense). We just live with our gimpy gate, and when we bought more fencing for separate chicken yards, we built our own (non-electric) gates for them.
Nice idea, problematic implementation.
