This surge protector was designed especially for surges from lightning and wired pet fences. Installation is a snap with the use of two spring connectors for the loop wire that extends around the yard. There is an additional connection which goes from the Impi Surge protector to the pet fence transmitter. You won’t be losing any outlets either as there are two standard plugs on the sides of the Impi Surge protector which will also protect any devices plugged into it as well. These outlets are positioned in such a way that any device you own should be able to plug into them without creating any blockage of the second outlet. The Impi Lightning Protector is a fantastic value at our always low pricing and the manufacture provides a 1 year warranty on any defects. Warranty will be voided if the seal on the device has been broken by the user. Be sure to place your Impi Lightning Protector indoors so that water damage cannot occur.
