Hang the fence changer on a fence post, wall stud or a wall that allows the contacts to be easily accessible.
Drive a grounding rod into the ground next to the fence charger. For maximum electrical conductivity, drive in at least three grounding rods within 10-feet of each other along the fence line.
Attach a grounding wire to the grounding rods. Use a hex-nut clamp and an adjustable wrench.
Attach the grounding wire to the black contact on the charger. Most chargers with have a wing-nut that can be hand tightened.
Attach the fence wire to the red contact on the charger.
Plug in standard 110 volt plug-in electric fence charger to activate or connect up a battery on 12 volt models. Solar powered types will need to be mounted in full sun to charge the battery and activate the fence.
