Air Bleeder For Ballasting Tractor Tires
The plastic insulator looks like an empty spool of thread with a large hollow center and flared ends that allow stretching of barbed wire. It's slotted down one side to fit over wire. Clips on back of the insulator allow it to snap into place on a metal post.
You slip the insulator over the wire, snap it onto the post, and then wrap a fastener wire over each end of the insulator to secure it to the post. When you tighten down the fastener, the slot on front closes.
"What's nice about this system is that you can put up the posts and then stretch the wire. And it allows you to use either high tensile or barbed wire," notes Gerhart, adding that he makes the insulator out of a UV protected plastic for long life.
Gerhart is looking for a manufacturer.
