Insulated Fence Post Using durable polypropylene that’s been reinforced with a ribbed, steel I-beam, these temporary fence posts are the strongest poly post on the market. Not only is the polypropylene UV-resistant, each post is also completely molded as one piece, adding to its strength. The result is a sturdy, reliable fence post.
8 Clips For Varied Fence Heights Each step-in post has eight clips, which allow you to set your fence line to the height you need. These sturdy clips can hold any type of fence line, including poly tape, poly rope, poly wire, steel wire and aluminum wire. Hang multiple lines or a single line – these fence posts are completely adaptable to your needs. The clips are set at the following heights when measured form the top of the step-in flange:

easy and secure installation
Easy & Secure Installation Installing each fence post is easy. With its steel-tip base, just pick your post’s location and guide it into the ground. Then make a quick push with your foot on the step-in flange and it is set firmly in place. The post will remain secure and hold its place thanks to the built-in anti-rotation spike.
Multiple Fence Post Uses Your step-in posts have multiple uses. Most importantly, they are designed to hold electric fencing line and are perfectly suited to hold poly tape, poly wire, poly rope or wire. While these posts were designed with electric fencing in mind, they can also be used to hold construction zone netting, for crowd control, and property marking. They can even hold string lights for decorations or serve as vegetable or plant stakes.
