Fiberglass Posts

They do require insulators, your choice of fencing barrier (wire, rope, or tape) and energizers to work efficiently. Fiberglass posts are a great choice because there are a variety of options to get any job done. Kencove offers standard predrilled rods, custom cut rods, step in posts, and colored posts. Better yet, they are all made right in the USA!

Fiberglass Post Accessories Made in the USA!

Rod Clips

Kencove’s Rod clips are all made in the USA as well! Rod clips are used on fiber rods to secure the polywire or rope in place. Rod clips stay with the post when relocating the fence- unlike t-posts which use a clip that is often lost while moving the fence. If a more permanent installation is needed, the stainless-steel clip can be made to grip the post much tighter. Using a pair of pliers, bend the long tail around the rod and bend around the short tail.

Cotter Pins

Cotter pins are a great economical way to fasten wire to a fiber rod. Holes must first be drilled in the fiberglass rods or get yourself some predrilled fiber rods. Clip the pin onto the wire, put the 2 legs of the pin through the hole and bend the ends back to the fence wire.
