Cut-out switches are used to turn electric off along the fenceline while troubleshooting or making repairs. Install one on each corner to eliminate a trip to the energizer. Unused pastures and heavily weeded bottom wires may also be easily disconnected to increase fence voltage.
The Heavy Duty Single Throw Cut-Out Switch has two sets of stainless contacts along the stainless steel knife. The pivot bolt for the knife is not an electrical contact, which allows for easier movement of the knife. The yellow handle allows you to see on/off positions from a distance.
