The Swivel Cut-Out Switch is made with a stainless-steel knife and contacts, which are spring-tightened. When this switch is closed, the contacts are protected from adverse weather.
Cut-out switches are used to turn the electric off along the fence line while troubleshooting or making repairs. Install one on each corner to save yourself a trip to the energizer. Unused pastures and heavily weeded bottom wires may also be easily disconnected to increase fence voltage.
