Frequently Asked Questions

How do I locate a break in the boundary wire?

  • Locate your original splice(s) and verify they have a good, solid connection.
  • Check your yard to determine any possible damage to the boundary wire (e.g. recent digging, aerating, rodent burrowing, or any other noticeable disturbance in your yard next to the wire).
  • If you still cannot find the break in the boundary wire, there are 2 options for locating it.

Option 1: Purchase a Wire Break Locator that will locate the break in the boundary wire. Watch this video for instructions on using the Wire Break Locator.

Option 2: Follow the procedure below.

  1. Unplug the transmitter.
  2. Connect both ends of your twisted wire to one boundary wire terminal.
  3. Measure and cut a test wire which is half the length of your total boundary wire footage.
  4. Connect one end of test wire to the other boundary wire terminal.
  5. Locate the halfway point of your boundary and cut the boundary wire.
  6. Splice the other end of the test wire to either side of your boundary wire where you cut it in half.
  7. Plug in the fence transmitter and check the loop indicator light. If the loop indicator light is on, you can assume the break is in the other half of the boundary wire.
  8. If the loop indicator light did not come on, you may assume there is a break in this portion of the boundary wire. However, there is a small chance of having more than one break in your system.
  9. Be sure to check both halves of your entire loop.
  10. Replace the damaged boundary wire with new wire.
  11. Reconnect the boundary wire to the fence transmitter. 12.Check the loop indicator light. If the loop indicator light is on, test the system with the receiver collar.

What is a partial wire break and how do I find it?

A partial wire break is when the wire is not completely broken into 2 pieces, but there is enough damage to cause problems in the system.

Partial wire breaks can be more difficult to locate and fix.

  • Amazing!

    By on

    We were hesitant when we purchased this to see if it truly would work. Well in our surprise, IT DID!! It was easy to use and he found the break rather quickly. Which was surprising as we have an acre of land where the line was laid. My husband fixed it quickly and we were back in business. I highly recommend!!

  • Mostly effective product.

    By on

    Product worked well, however, the included transistor radio could not be tuned to an empty place on the dial so it was very hard to hear the tones. Fortunately, I had a very small transistor radio of my own that I was able to use. Break was found, repaired, and all is well.

    We installed our fence, which covers a 2 acre area, only to find out that it had a break in the wire, so this has helped tramendously.

  • Found break and fixed it

    By on

    The locator worked with no problems. Locating the break was easier than I expected. Repair was easy. Note: You have to supply your own wire to splice. I was glad I bought this tool instead of calling the fence company.

    I ordered the kit at 5 pm on a Monday evening, standard shipping, got an email that evening saying it had shipped, the package was on my porch at 2 pm the following afternoon. WOW!!!!! I had tried using an AM radio with an RF choke hooked up to the transmitter, I would recommend to not waste your time, just buy this kit. It works hundreds of times better than the AM radio without this kit's transmitter. I used the kit after a long period of heavy rain, so the ground was soaked where I put in the ground stakes-this is critical, you need to saturate the ground where you put the stakes in. I believe this may be where the gentleman who posted a negative review ran into problems.

  • Money saving product!

    Once we got the hang of what to hook up to what, it helped us find two breaks and saved us a visit from the Fence company!

  • simple and easy to use

    By on

    I saved a couple hundred dollars using this detector. It was an inherited property and I had no real idea where the boundary was. Set up is quick, signal is strong when scanning. Break was fixed in less than an hour including first time set up.

  • Saves huge effort

    By on

    Bought it several days ago and it shipped right away. Worked as advertised. It saved me about two days of work because I would have had to dig up the entire yard. Only issue is that it takes a while to set up. 30 minutes of set -up is really worth it.

  • This product worked for me.

    By on

    The product worked, however the instructional video showed that it came with a white wire that you were supposed to wrap around the transmitter. Mine did not come with this wire. But it still worked. So it could just be that it was a different model than what was in the video.
