I've had these on my fence for about 2 years. I didn't do the initial install so don't know if any broke out of the bag. Now, however, it seems almost every day I am repairing fence where the nut has busted off the side. It is possible one of the horses is adding pressure on the fence reaching to the other side ... voltage on the fence registers about 4 which should be enough to keep her off but don't know. Our temps here are fairly mild ... just in the last few weeks evening temps have dropped to 35-40 degrees F. So don't know if temp has anything to do with it. Or a horse leaning over top of it. Maybe just age. I am buying replacements as it has certainly worked well up to know. But it seems clear that the nut is the weak point.

These work well, but if used at a corner where you want to continue the hot fence , you will need to connect a hot wire or jumper clamps. When re tensioning the line, you may need to move the jumper. Make sure you have a square key wrench if you need to take everything apart . This product is very strong.

Like Allen T, the spring on the end of the ratchet broke on the first 2 of these that I used. The first one broke one the first time that I used it. The second 1 the second time I tightened the fence. This was in 90F temps. In cold weather I suspect these will break more easily. The plastic is too brittle. When they break the whole thing comes apart making the fence useless. I would pay more for one that actually works. Premier needs to retest and correct this.

Not so good. On the other side of the ratchet twister is a very weak "nut" that holds the ratcheting mechanism together. When it breaks the whole assembly fails. Not something you want on a ranch with miles of fencing. Maybe ok on a smaller place where you pass by it every day. If the nut gets improved this could be a good item as it is a clean installation and a time saver.

These are awesome! They are stiff to tighten, but, the electric rope isn't slipping a tiny bit! I've been thru 3 different tightened...nothing held! But these hold great! My only complaint is that there is a part that screw on the side. A number of them were really loose coming out of the bag. You have to manually tighten them before putting them up. Otherwise they fall off...and get lost. Then they are useless. But that is my only complaint. I won't buy any other tensioner in the future...these are "it" for me.
