about the product
how it works

Quickly and easily set up or take down an electrical fencing perimeter using this 48 in. Plastic Black Step-in Post from Fi-Shock. It allows electrical wire and poly tape to be threaded through any of its eight molded clips, offering height customization for your barrier based on the terrain and the type of animal you’re trying to control. A large step-in flange allows you to throw your weight into it, effortlessly depositing the integrated heavy-duty steel stake into the earth. The post stays situated thanks to an anti-rotation spike beneath the flange, keeping the unit aligned so it tethers easily with other posts in your lineup. Constructed with UV-stabilized polypropylene, it’s fashioned with reinforced ribbing in the I-beam shaft for extra rigidity and durability. This heavy-duty line post does not require insulators due to its plastic composition and its integrated clips are able to accommodate poly tape up to 2 in. wide. It’s an affordable way to facilitate rotational grazing applications around your land or construct temporary enclosures while you’re traveling the country.

Customer Questions & Answers

could these be used with poultry fencing or are they not sturdy enough to support that type of weight?

Asked by: tskk
Yes these would work with poultry fencing. They are sturdy enough to support that weight, provided it is installed on solid, dry soil.

How far apart should these be installed in feet?

Asked by: Jimmy
I use them for controlled grazing of my steers on irrigated pasture, and place them 12 to 15 yards apart, with a top and a middle poly hot wire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fence post!... Great fence post!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good posts Works great for both electric and small portable fences.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive, easy to use, quick fencing solution The fence post is easy to place with a single step (or two if there's rocks). Once they are in place there are several choices for the height of your fence. Need to move it? Lift it out and step it in a few feet over... Works great and very economical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price. If you keep in mind what these are for, temporary lightweight fencing that you can throw in fast and remove just as quickly, you're less apt to be disappointed. I've used them to make a fence around my blueberry and strawberry garden. When the berries are done, I take the fence down. I've used some as temporary plant supports. I've hung tubing for a misting system on them that I set up on a hot day while I was doing some gardening. Took it down when I was done. I've hung garden decorations and solar light strings on them. They're made of plastic and they have some flex to them. If you string them too tightly they'll flex. If you try to stomp them through a rock, you could break the plastic "pedal" part. Ive been using these a couple years now. One has a small broken part but is still usable. They're just handy to have around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy easy easy light, easy to put into ground, ,and there are little plastic caps on the sharp ends so you don't hurt yourself. Not a lot to say but I installed these quickly and easily. Lightweight yet sturdy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO, NO, NO!!! Well, folks, these posts are the CHEAPEST step-in posts out there. They're also the WORST by far. Pay one more dollar and you'll be way happier. The plastic from which these posts are made is too brittle, allowing the tabs and step-in ledges to break off over and over. I have the other brands of plastic step-in posts and they are MUCH more reliable than the Fi-Shock. These are an ABSOLUTE WASTE of money.
