Rated 5 out of 5 by Freddy Indispensable for an invisable fence
This is a must have and undoubtedly has allowed my fence that encompasses 12 acres to function for last 4 years. Alas, last close lighting strike fried it and still got my transmitter. Good news is that when I called Sportdog to get just a new transmitter, they gave me a great deal and when I told them my surge protector was fried, they sent me a free one since it has a lifetime warranty. But, Chewy did great getting me this replacement which is now a spare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GSPx1 Don't throw away your money - Buy surge protection
Surge protection was formerly integrated into the high-end models of PetSafe fences. The engineers, or marketing folks, at PetSafe decided it was better to sell the lightening protection separately as an option.
If you do not buy lightening protection, you are throwing away your money and will, eventually, need to replace your transmitter. It is merely a matter of time until lightening strikes.
No system can be perfectly engineered or perfectly manufactured to withstand lightening strikes. And, no system will last forever, but you can greatly increase the life of your underground pet protection with this surge protector. Don't waste your money and save yourself the hassle of discovering your transmitter was electrocuted during the storm and having to replace it. Buy the surge protection and be assured of continued protection for pet. Even after the storm passes.
