Telling the Difference between Tensioners, Joiners, and Electrical Connectors for Electric Fences

Tensioner/tighteners take up slack and keep electric fence conductors from sagging. Some also help to take the conductor around a corner or terminate it at the end of a run or at a gate; and some may also serve as electric fence joiners--in which case they are also listed on the joiners page. The principal job of electric fence joiners (splicers and clamps) is to bring separate strands of an electric fence conductor together. In contrast, electrical connectors are not designed to tighten conductors or to join ones that would otherwise pull apart. Their task is merely to provide good electrical connections, connections that permit the fence's electric charge to pass into all parts of the electric fence that should be charged.
