Insulators | Off-set
Off-set insulators hold the line away from the post giving extra clearance from hedges and walls, additional insurance from rubbing and chewing or from potential arcing problems if installing on stock fence. Off-sets are also useful for outwitting pests and predators. Installed at the base of a chicken run provides a 'scare' wire for the incoming predator or can be carefully placed to catch the sensitive ears of burrowing pests. This type of insulator can be positioned at every other post as it is less likely to make contact with intervening posts.
