Helps easily locate wire breaks within your in-ground fence system. Temporarily replace your transmitter then trace your fence configuration. Audible tones help discover each side of a broken wire. Locates complete breaks only; partial breaks will not be detected by the system. Radio mounts to an extendable pole so it can comfortably be held close to the ground. Frequency: below 620kHz when possible. Adjust the tuning dial to a location where no radio stations are broadcasting and the output of the radio receiver is producing a static noise. Works up to 10 acres. (It may work beyond 10 acres, but the tone will get weak and inaudible)

A 25% restocking fee will be charged on all returned RFA-50 or RFA-450 wire break locators.

Saved me hours of looking!, 9/25/14
We have about 1000 ft of underground fence and recently had a break. The Wire Break Locator saved us hours of looking for the damaged spot. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. After we had the Locator set up it took only about 15 minutes to find the break. It was not in a place that we would ever have expected and the wire did not even look damaged. We cut out the bad section and reconnected with the wire nuts and gel caps included in the kit, and all is well again.

Saved me hours of work. , 8/21/14
Great product. My yard has about 1100 feet of boundary wire and the wire break detector found it in a place I never expected. Since my boundary wire is about ten years old this product will come in handy in finding future breaks. It saves time and beats me digging up my lawn on hands and knees.

Works as advertised., 8/18/14
It took roughly half an hour, maybe a little longer, to get everything set up to start, and about 15-20 minutes to actually find the break. The price could have been a little cheaper, but it still beat having to dig up the wire all the way around, or paying someone else to do it. We're definitely keeping ours in case another rodent decides to make a hole right where the wire was burried.
