About This Product

Lightweight yet sturdy, this Fi-Shock 48 in. Plastic White Step-In Fence Post is ideal for setting up and taking down temporary electrical fencing. Constructed with reinforced polypropylene, it is equipped with eight molded clips to hold fence wire or poly tape at different heights. A heavy-duty steel stake occupies the lower 6 in. of this fence post, which plunges into the ground with the aid of a large step-in flange while an anti-rotation spike keeps it in desired alignment. The clips accommodate poly tape up to 2 in. wide and the post does not require insulators thanks to its plastic composition. Ribbed reinforcement allows the I-beam shaft to maintain its rigidity, minimizing the potential for collapse or compromise. It's the perfect fence post for rotating grazing areas and taking on camping trips to quickly erect and dismantle temporary enclosures.

  • Great for temporary enclosures and rotational grazing applications
  • Molded of reinforced polypropylene in a high-visibility white color
  • Measures 4 ft. tall with integrated 6 in. heavy-duty steel stake
  • Large step-in flange allows easy insertion into the ground
  • Anti-rotation spike under step-in flange helps keep post situated
  • 8 integrated molded clips hold electric fence wire and poly tape (up to 2 in. wide) at varying heights
  • Constructed with reinforcing ribs along the I-beam shaft for added strength
  • No insulators necessary; plastic composition insulates electric fence wire or poly tape
  • UV-stabilized for resistance to ultraviolet radiation degradation
  • Wire fencing and poly tape sold separately
  • Also available in black (model A-48B)

      Q:Can this item be used with a snow fence?

      Answer This Question

      A:  That is actually exactly how we use it. The snow fence was a little taller than the post so I trimmed the top of the fence to make it work.

      by|Jan 8, 2022

        A:  No as the cold affects them and with a plastic fence net on them when the wind blows they crack and break. I've had 7 of my 15 break.

          A:  Probably not. I used that light weight orange plastic fence you see at construction sites and it was kind of wobbly even with that. If you're talking the wooden snow fence, I would think not. The spikes seem sturdy, but the plastic post really flexes easily. You'd be wasting your time if you were thinking for sand use.

          by|Jan 8, 2022

            A:  This has not been tested for use on snow fences, and we do not recommend such.

            by|Jan 5, 2022

              A:  Hi, it depends on if you set the stakes before the ground froze. These are plastic stakes with multiple L shaped hooks for attaching soft fencing like bird netting, and a strong steel spike about a foot long encased in the bottom part. I didn't have much hope for them and bird netting to keep the deer herds from getting to my hostas, but they have done the job wonderfully. Also, I left them in the ground over winter, because the deer dig up the plants in late fall and early spring, and the stakes have survived with no deterioration. [I thought they'd be crumbled by our 2020 9 degree winter.] Two years later, the first stakes are still fine.

                  Q:Can you please order and get this fence post in the Black color? The black one is online but it is not available to order at all. I am here May 02, 2020. I believe it will sell well in black as black is so versatile and will do well with lawn and garden projects with a silver or black fence materials and black will do so much better blending in to landscaping versus the white. Thanks.

                    The plastic posts are sturdy and the metal tip easily penetrates the ground and anchors solidly in the ground. I use them to string LED lights for Halloween to form a barrier along the edge of our yard so people don’t trample our plants. I’ll remove them after the holiday. My guess is that if one leaves them in the ground year round that the plastic will start to break down. My only complaint: a few of the plastic posts are bending slightly with only small LEDs on them. The others are okay. With so little weight, I’m not sure why some are bending.

                    Works good for dividing my full size horse and pony during feeding. Would love if it was a little sturdier. Frishock let's make a heavy duty version

                    These posts are pretty good for an electric fence. They are easy to get into the ground. They have plenty of slots to adjust the different heights of the wiring. The only bad thing is they get brittle after a while and will break.
