Perfect height, choice of wire heights, and fast and easy to install.

I love these posts. I had ordered them before, but wanted more. I am putting them around the outside of my waterfowl aviary. I can run 3 strands of hotwire to keep the ground and climbing predators from attempting to get in.

I love the electric T posts that I purchased. I need several strings of hot-wire at low, medium and high levels to keep the mink, raccoon, skunks, fox, coyote and cougars from digging and climbing on top of my waterfowl aviary.

I wanted these to use in my garden for my tomato plants. The cages you buy in the stores are usually too small to contain the plants once they take off growing. So I used these around them then attached green gardening tape to them where the tomato branches were heaviest as they were growing. It makes the support custom to each plants need.
