Unbeatable product By BKS

This product is the best choice for a lightweight fence post (for me, it's to keep the deer off my roses). The step-in design and spear at the bottom make it very easy to push into the ground where it remains very sturdy. The 8 hooks make it very simple to attach plastic mesh fencing at whatever level you desire. They are enduring as I had 6 old ones from a friend that are over 25 years old. Zaremba online appears the ONLY way to get them; I searched in stores and online for days before I luckily discovered them. Lastly, price is reasonable for a quality product.

Very easy to install. After the winter is over, I'll know better how well these stand up to the ice and snow.

Yea they are exactly what you'd expect - step in the ground easily. I used them to reinforce an electric goat netting.

Good product, fast shipping By Charlie

Very satisfied with the quick shipping. Using these on my home garden against rabbits, stringing the electric fence wire is a snap pun intended .. so fast and easy to install. I would like to see the bottom wire clip a little lower to prevent the smaller rabbits from going under the bottom wire. Where the ground has a few high spots, my solution to this was to dig a small depression so that the post foot bar is slightly below ground level but not enough to permit the wire to touch the ground. I would buy more if/when I need more.

Q.For one or two strands of electrobraid, what post spacing needed on level ground?

We do not recommend using Step-In posts with Electrobraid fencing. 

Q.Do you need to use insulators with step-in posts? If so, what type?

This product does not require any additional insulators. 

Q.How well do these hold up over the years? Do they wear down easily in the sun, become brittle etc...?

This product is made to last as it is constructed with durable polypropylene and steel.
