Hot Zone Expansion Kit
Hot Zone Expansion Kit
The Hot Zone Expansion Kit allows the user to increase the coverage of the protection area for larger food plots. The kit includes everything needed to expand the initial Hot Zone Deer Exclosure: additional wire, tape, tensioners, a ground rod, and a ground rod wire and clamps. The addition of the Expansion Kit to the Original Hot Zone Deer Exclosure System will allow up to 420 yards of perimeter fencing to protect larger areas.
Adding the Expansion Kit:
When the Expansion Kit is added to the Hot Zone Deer Exclosure some disassembly may be required if the original fence is currently setup. If the original fence is up you will need to unhook the components and the wire/tape of the fence from the corner post. Depending on the shape chosen for the new fence configuration at least one side of poles and wire/tape will have to be removed to open up the protected area for the expansion.
Determine the shape of your larger protection area and set your posts evenly in a shape that has 420 yards of perimeter according to the directions above "Setting the Posts" for the Hot Zone Deer Exclosure. The 7/8" posts should be evenly spaced around the perimeter or can be used in any area needing more stability.
After the posts are set, the wire /tape of the new kit can be attached to the original wire and tape to provide 420 yards of perimeter fence.
Note: To connect the new wire and tape to the original kit take the two ends side by side and tie them in an over hand knot making sure to leave 2" of wire as tag ends. Then melt these tag ends and twist them together to make sure there is good conductivity between lines.
After the wire/tape are connected, it is ready to be set around the perimeter of posts according to the directions above "Running the Wire/Tape" for the Hot Zone Deer Exclosure.
Drive the additional ground rod in the soil approximately 15' away from the ground rod of the Initial Hot Zone Exclosure system, so the included wire and clamps reach both rods. Then attach clamp to original ground rod, insert wire in clamp and screw clamp down until wire is contained in clamp. Run wire to the new ground rod and repeat.
