Above Ground Installation Staples
In order to make things easier for you we now have a new above ground solution through the use of wire securing staples. This is perfect for if you don't want to bury all the wire for your fencing. The use of staples is simple, quick, and easy. Lay the wire down and use a staple every few feet to secure the wiring properly.
Installation is as easy as 1, 2, Done
- First lay out your boundary wire in your desired shape and around the area you want to contain. From your boundary wire run twisted wire to your transmitter and pug it in.
- Staple the twisted wire to the ground by hammering in a wire staple every 5 - 6 feet.
- Now stop and look at the wire. Is it completely flush to the ground all the way to the start of the boundary? The wire MUST completely touch the ground. If not go and staple any raised areas before proceeding to the next step.
- Place a staple where the twisted wire and the beginning of the boundary meet (if you have a splice in this area please dig a small hole about 2 inches deep and bury the splice. Then place a staple in the front of and behind the splice to relieve any pressure on the splice)
- Next, walk to the first corner of your boundary and staple it to the ground. Repeat this step for all corners of your boundary. (Not all yards are square if you do not have corners on your boundary please select multiple anchor points for the wire)
- Now place staples as needed and make sure to staple any raised areas down until they are completely flush with the ground, for maximum safety for you and your guests.
Now You're Done! It's that simple!
As long as there are no raised spots in your wire you have no need to worry about people tripping over it, and in most conditions the wire should be completely hidden within 7-10 days. Don't worry about your lawn equipment cutting the wire as the blades will never be near the wire. Most lawns are trimmed at 2" - 3" inches above the ground, nowhere close to the wire laying flush on the ground. Areas with cattle and livestock are recommended to bury the wire because hooves can create breaks in the wire if it's stepped on.
