Anyone use them? I've only seen them in catalogs and don't really understand how they work. Just hang them on and they flash with the fence pulse? Are they reliable or just a gimmick to separate you from some bucks???

Thanks...

I've never heard of them but years ago I saw in a catalog where you could get bulbs to place on a CB antenna and they would lite up when transmitting. Then one time by accident I was holding a portable 2-way radio and a 12 volt test lite in the same hand with the cord all wound up then keyed the radio up to talk and the test lite lit up.

if youre talking about a test lite,i've had one for years...has a ground lead with a spike and a loop for hot wire...works great...you just use it to check fence tho...cant see it from any distance...think i gave 3 bux for mine 20 years ago...beats p n on fence to test.

I just looked at one again... Thought they were so that you could see that the fence was working from a distance, but they are a warning light for when the fence voltage gets low... Guess that would still serve the purpose??? Not worth 25 bucks to me tho.....

A standard fluorescent bulb will flash like you are talking about. I tried a 4 foot one, wrapped a wire around the terminals on one end and kinda stabbed the other end into the ground. It flashed but it would need to be dark to see it at any distance.

I was going to make a bracket and mount it at the far end of the pasture so I would be able to see at night if the fence is going but decided against it. No sense letting the whole neighborhood know when the fence is off or incase anybody calls in some strange light.

I've had a fence alert from Kencove fencing in Pa. for years. It just hangs on a hot wire. If the fencer quits working, it starts flashing and will continueto flash until the fencer is workng again. Handy little gadget. The only trouble I've had with it is that the contacts will corrode from time to time and need to be cleaned up some.
