Screwner fence systemI sell and install hi-tensile electric fence and needed a way to install ends and corners without the use of expensive heavy equipment. That led to the invention of my new "Screwner" fence system. These self-insulated screw-in posts make setting corners easy, eliminating heavy, cumbersome posts and the need to dig postholes. Using this system, I can install a complete corner in approximately 15 min. by hand.
We make three models to support fences from 1 to 10 wires. The same components are used interchangeably for the corners, ends and bracing, greatly simplifying inventory. Once installed there is no possibility of the post shorting out the fence as is common when steel posts are used.
The metal auger anchors are set into the ground using a hand-cranked ratchet. Once anchors are in the ground, you slip the fiberglass posts into them. The system is also ideal for non-electric fence. (Willy Kilmer, 4730 Antioch, Meriam, Kan. 66203 ph 913 262-1118)
