Multiwire Springsteel Posts
This springsteel electric fence post from Strainrite® Fencing Systems is a good choice for rotational grazing, strip grazing and other movable fence applications. Stressed posts will flex and then “spring” back into their original shape.
Step-in Multiwire Springsteel Posts have (5) “molded-on” insulators. This allows graziers to keep a consistent conductor height throughout their fences.
Note: in-use photos show the old style of post with non-insulated shaft. Shafts are now plastic coated in event the conductor is released from the clip.
- 35" tall installed; 7.5" below ground.
- 6mm (.24") diameter shaft; shaft is insulated. Shaft “springs” back into position if a person or animal bends the post.
- 5 non-adjustable insulators (clip height from top to bottom: 35", 22.5", 16", 12", 7.5") support most low-tension electric fence conductors.
- Versatile top clip can be used for narrow tape (up to 1.5") or electrified ropes, braids and twines.
- Unique insulator design prevents conductors from being dislodged when moving the fence.
- Manufactured using top-grade galvanized steel and UV-treated plastics.
- Insulated handle (white) prevents accidental shocks when moving the fence.
- Galvanized pressed-formed steel foot for stability and easy insertion.
- Place post at desired location
- Use attached foot to step into the ground
- Attach an electric fence conductor through insulators
These posts are best used as line posts with gentle curves. They are not good to use for sharp corners.

The posts are better than many on the market, however calling the shaft insulated is misleading. It is evident as part of the manufacturing process there are raised sections of plastic and small circles on the shaft where there is not complete plastic coverage. To the extent used as an end post with polybraid of 2 lines(one reel), running the lower line up the shaft to the next higher level you will invariably experience arcing on the line to the “insulated” shaft and likely burn your line/ground the fence. Further the insulation does not run to the ground so if against netting you will also ground out. I call them my zebra posts since I have many sections wrapped with black electrical tape to insulate. Good potential, but missed the mark.

Excellent post, only suggestion is to create points on the metal that needs to be stepped into the ground.

These posts are awesome. They function just like I hoped. It makes rotational grazing much easier and quicker than with the plastic posts with the clips. These posts are light but strong and I really like the fact the step-in piece is steel. It’s only been a couple months but it seems they will last a long time.

These are worth the price! We appreciate these for the hefty step, the long metal rod that goes into the ground, and the many height options for the clips. Most other step-in posts are plastic and break more easily.

I'm in love with these step in posts. They were dead simple to install and even the thicker poly wire fit into the slots no problem. They are so much better than the ones you can get at the national chain feed stores and I'm not worried about them breaking even during the coldest days of winter.
