End Posts that tension & connect the Pingg-String wires

The “Fence-Top Barrier” consists of four wires that are tensioned by these End Posts and held apart by Support Brackets. The End Posts are a special copyrighted design incorporating unique electrical wiring links that form part of the barrier. The fence barrier is designed for existing fences 1.5m or higher. Once installed, it sits a maximum of 18cm above your existing fence. The barrier stops cats and possums going over the fence or possums travelling along the fence.

We recommend that you install the Pingg-String Fence Barrier along the full perimeter of your protected area. Do not leave any gaps that animals could exploit.

The Pingg-String Ground Barrier is powered by the Pingg-String Solar Energiser (sold separately).

Contents

Each End Post kit contains:

  • Two (2) End Posts.
  • Two Insulated cables for connecting adjacent End Posts.
  • Twelve (12) Pingg-String Tree Clips (wire covers).
  • Twelve (12) Pingg-String Flat Washers (wire holders).

Pingg-String Design Flexibility

Every installation is different which is why the Pingg-String can be ordered as components. Order your Pingg-String Energiser plus the number of 15m Extension Kits need.

This End Post Kit is used in a variety of situations. To simplify your ordering, please use the calculator table below.

Note: One Pingg-String Energiser can power up to 300m (1000ft or 20 kits) of 4-wire barrier. You can build bigger installations but you'll need additional energisers each powering its own separate section less than its maximum distance capacity.

Installation Sequence

Mini fence barrier demonstration

This illustration is a mini “Fence Barrier” through which we will demonstrate the sequence of installation. It represents just one straight section of your fence. In your actual installation you will repeat this on all protected sides of your property.

Basically, you will screw the End Posts #1 and Support Brackets #2 to your fence. You’ll repeat this on all other straight sections of your fence. Then install the four Pingg-Wires, as illustrated,  starting from the top wire down. Once every section is completed, they are connected to each other with a pair of insulated cables #7 so all four wires are energised by the pulse.

End Posts

These are the End Posts. Each straight section of fence will have an End Post at either end. They maintain tension in the four wires. They also connect the wires electrically through the metal discs #4 where the wires are held. Important: End Posts must be fastened to a rigid surface such as timber or metal. You decide whether to fasten these to your fence posts, top rail or the fence. Notice the printed marking “Fence Top”. This is a suggested alignment point to the top of your fence. When aligned to the marker the lower wire will be 1.5cm from the fence top. You can alter this within certain limits. Note: The lowest Pingg-Wire must be no more than 3cm to 4cm above the fence.

Support Bracket

Support Brackets help keep the wires evenly separated and give physical strength to the barrier. The illustration shows one Support Bracket but you’ll install several depending on the distance between the End Posts. Typical spacing is 1.5m but you can install them up to 2.4m if the length of your fence panels dictate this. You can also space them less than 1.5m if you need more physical strength.

Pingg-String Wire

Each set of 4 Pingg-Wires must be installed onto the End Post starting with the top wire and finishing on the bottom wire. This sequence will reduce the chance of over tensioning or having the previous wires go slack. Attach the wire to one end of that section. Walk to the other end while unspooling the Pingg-Wire. Cut the Pingg-Wire allowing enough length to thread through the mounting holes at this end. As you pull the Pingg-Wire through the first hole take up the slack then pull a further 1 or 2 cm to add a little tension to the Pingg-Wire. Do not over tension because it may reduce the life of the wire.

Mounting Holes

Pingg-Wires are threaded through the four mounting holes. The sequence is marked in the illustration. Push the Pingg-Wire through hole A. Then into hole B. Then C and finally D. While threading, make sure no bunching of the wires occurs so the finishing clips will sit neatly. Important: Please complete all wiring exactly as described without short cuts. If you simply tie the Pingg-Wire to one hole your system probably won’t repel properly. It may also generate Radio/TV interference and will need to be redone properly!

Tree Clips & Washers

The Tree Clips and Washers are installed to give a neat visual finish to electrical connections. The Tree Clip is a firm fit into the hole. Press firmly! The Washer is a lighter press fit. We recommend you attach them immediately after installing each Pingg-Wire .

Bracket Clips

Bracket Clips have a slot through which you can pass the Pingg-Wire. These clips push into the holes in the Support Bracket and keep the four Pingg-Wires apart.

Insulated Cable

Insulated Cable connects the End Post to the next adjacent End Post so the puIse continues in the next section. In each End Post Kit you receive two insulated cables about 40cm long. The insulation has been pre-cut 3.5cm from either end to allow easy removal. When you remove this insulation pull off with a twisting motion. This will keep all the fine wires together and make it easy to thread into the End Post. Thread this wire through the four mounting holes using the same method as in point #4.

    Very good design
    Easy to install and well designed. Agree with prior comment about screw size or need for another hole to ensure it stays vertical when the string is in place. Feeding the string through the holes was a bit tricky but overall I was impressed with the product.

    Very effective
    Charlie the escape artist cat had his 1st encounter with Ping String over 2 weeks ago & has since not tried to go over the fence. If u r wanting to mount the end post kit on masonry u will find the top mounting hole to close to the edge. U will need to mount it to a timber batten then to the brick. Overall very effective & easy to install.

    post orientation
    I inadvertently has one of the posts wrong way round. This caused the pingg wire to arc onto the track of the pcb causing a red led fault condition which took me some time to find. I could hear it clicking, but since the wire was directly crossing the pcb, the arcing was hard to spot. Rather than disassemble and redo, i packed the wire off the post with a bit of offcut sleeving from a power cord as a good insulator. Perhaps the assembly instructions might be amended to state this fault as the reason the posts are shown as they are. It was easy to get wrong. I had a possum jump through the fence taking out an end post which i did manage to fix with timber.

    Not on masonry
    The top hole of the end post that mounts it is to close to the edge of masonry for u to be able to successfully drill the brick without it crumbling. U will need to mount it to a wooden batten fixed to the fence.

    End post dramas
    Found Cat able to squeeze between these or go over between them and they can easily break. Using pingg-string instead of insulated cable to join them worked better for my cat. Make sure that when attaching to fence top that you have them facing the right way otherwise they short-out where the pingg-string wires touch them and a lot of time is wasted undoing them then redoing them.

    Quality product, easy to install. Supplied quickly. Good customer service. When designing the mk2 model post consider a modification to make string tension adjustment quicker and easier than the current threading through holes method

    Installed the product on a typical treated pine paling fence. Has worked well to deter dogs escaping. The only difficulty I found was in maintaining tension in the wires. The 2 x fixing holes are considerably larger than the suggested 8g screw size, this I am assuming to be to accommodate the various fixing types depending on fence material. However, this created slop in the fixing. A 3rd hole in a triangular pattern would assist preventing this. {Editor: we suggest to go up to the next size screw.]
