No need to completely replace your underground dog fence wire, just find the problem and fix it with the PetSafe boundary wire break locator kit. This wire break locator kit helps easily locate breaks in your in ground dog fence boundary wire. It can be used to find broken wire in any brand of dog fence system. All boundary wire in your loop needs to be the same gauge and type of wire. Just temporarily replace your transmitter with the testing transmitter, then trace your fence configuration. Audible tones assist you in discovering the broken wire.

The PetSafe break locator can only locate complete breaks. Partial breaks will not be detected by the system. This item is not returnable, all sales are final on the PetSafe break locator.

Features:

  • Will only locate complete breaks, not partial breaks
  • Emits two different tones, one along each side of the boundary wire
  • Tone will remain the same until you reach the break, where it will fade away and the other tone will come in on the other side of the break
  • Signal becomes very weak and difficult to detect when approaching the break
  • Must follow over the wire with AM radio to pick up signal
  • Emits two different tones, one along each side of the boundary wire
  • Must follow over the wire with AM radio to pick up signal

Package Contents:

  • Testing Transmitter - WBL-100
  • Portable Radio
  • Adapter
  • 25 feet of PetSafe Boundary Wire
  • 4 Wire Nuts

Alternative Method for finding wire breaks:

  1. Connect both ends of your twisted boundary wire to the first terminal on your transmitter
  2. Measure and cut a new piece of boundary wire that is 1/2 the length of your boundary loop
  3. Connect the new wire to the second terminal on the transmitter
  4. Locate the half- way point along your boundary loop
  5. Cut your boundary loop at the half-way point
  6. Connect the free end of your new piece of wire to either side of your boundary loop at the half way point
  7. Turn the system on and check the range of this smaller loop with the receiver collar
  8. If there is no improvement in the performance of your system, you may assume that there is a break in this portion of your boundary. Because there is a small chance you have more than one break in your loop, you should also try the same procedure for the other side of your loop
  9. Once you determine a section of your boundary loop has a break in it, find the middle of that section and cut the wire. Be sure to re-splice the first cut that you made and make it waterproof by caulking with silicone
  10. Connect the new wire to your boundary loop at the point at which you made the cut in STEP 9
  11. Turn the system on and check the range of this smaller loop with the receiver collar
  12. Repeat STEPS 8 - 11 until you find the damaged section of wire
  13. Replace damaged wire with new wire. Remember that all wire in your boundary loop must be the exact same size and type
