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 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.
