Hotpost Tangle Free Pigtail Posts
“Live-shaft” pigtail post from Strainrite® Fencing Systems. Same features as the Dura-Top Pigtail, but the shaft is electrified between the top and bottom insulators.
The key benefit of a Hotpost is if a conductor is knocked out of the pigtail or clip-on insulator, contacting the post, the fence is not grounded out. It’s a good choice for graziers whose animals or environment are at high risk for dislodged conductors.
Which pigtail is right for you?We offer several pigtail post options to fit your situation, including different heights and shaft conductivity. Visit this link to compare all pigtail post options.
- 33" tall, installed; 7.5" below ground.
- 7mm (.28") diameter conductive Hotpost shaft. The “live-shaft” is electrified from top handle to bottom insulator; prevents shorts if conductors make contact with the shaft. Springsteel is resilient; stressed posts will flex and then “spring” back into their original shape.
- Dura-Top head resists tangling when carrying multiple posts.
- Insulated handles (white) at the top and bottom of the post can be used to safely adjust posts, even when the fence is live. UV-treated for years of use.
These posts are best used as line posts with gentle curves. They are not good to use for sharp corners.
