I've had the same troubles as others with the plastic nut breaking. Often the first time I use them. I still order them because they're handy but it would be nice to not have to ziptie them together every time you adjust them.

Tensioner makes it easy to snug up the fence lines. Unfortunately, the plastic screw that holds the unit together isn't robust enough. I've had too many of them (15+) crack and you can't buy replacement screws. Premier has sent free replacements which is nice, but I'd rather not have to fool with replacement at all.

They work ok but break easily.

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.
