The Pet Fence Wire Break Locator makes finding breaks quick and easy. Often times, it is not possible to tell where your wire is broken unless you have the wire break locator.
It's not uncommon that you would need to dig up all your wire to find it. The Wire Break Locator will help you troubleshoot your system if there is a wire break indication on the fence transmitter or if the receiver collar is not functioning on the containment system but works during the short loop test.
Our Pet Fence Wire Break Detector can be used for any brand of underground pet fence to find wire breaks. This new and improved system replaces RFA-50.
The wire break locator is not returnable unless it is defective. All returned wire break detectors will be tested for proper operation. We will replace defective wire locators at no charge.

We live on 5 acres and have the invisible fence enclosing the large area immediately surrounding the house and barn area. The unit went bad during the winter and we were having a hard time finding the wire in 2 feet of snow that was covering the area. The broken wire finder worked wonderful. We found the break within an hour in one of the buried areas in the frozen ground. We have made temporary repairs until we are able to replace the section that was broken. It was interesting to note that the dogs did not even realize that the fence was not working. They never left the area where they knew the fence to be. We love the fence. Thanks to our son who had the original one and we saw how well it worked when our dogs had to stay at his house for two months while my husband was very ill.

The only downside to this product is that you have to be on your habds and kness crawling along the preimeter, so that the radio signal can be detected. For us it was a long crawl abt 3 acres under fence, but it's been there 5 yrs and this winter was the first problem. Unfortunately, for us we started at box and followed around and the break was at the end of the line , almost back at the box. Oh well, it still was found. Poor son, was frostbitten and had some sore knees but hey the dog is safe again ! LOL! Thanks for the product, as we both have your fences, and both live in the country , it will be handy to have.

EASY TO HOOKUP, FOUND BREAK IN MINUTES.

This is a good product. When I opened it, I was impressed with how massive the device was. It is much larger and heavier than the radio fence control!
Best of all though - it worked! I found the break in my wire in about 10 minutes. Sure beats burying a new wire!
The only thing that I think could be improved is that the two radio tones broadcast through the two wire ends are somewhat hard to distinguish at first. It took a couple of walks around the yard to figure out what I was listening for.

I hooked it up and it worked well. This particular fence has a 700 foot loop, so the signal got a bit weak toward the turnback point. Part of this fence is under water, and the receiver picked up the signal just like the part that is buried in dirt.

Useful for locating broken wire
Posted by Anderson's on Dec 22nd 2011
The underground radio fence break finder was a huge timesaver for us. It worked well to find the break quickly so our dogs are safe again! Our fence is around 4 acres through prairie, bramble & woods. Installing a new wire or finding the break without this device would have been a huge task. Our break was located and the wire was repaired in a short time. Thanks once again Radio Fence Co.!!!

After installing detector it took about 5 minutes to find break. I can only imagine how look it would have taken with out this device.

this product is simple to use, my husband and I located our break within 30 min. of trying the locator. Once finding the area, it assisted with the specific break location in a short amount of time. It saved us a lot of money, not having to call a locator company out to find it.
