Still no. I always put in the last step-in posts next to the wood post and then tie it to the wood post for support. Just make sure the tape is not touching the wood or anything else that can ground it.
Trying to think what else you could use for insulators that you might have around the place - any kind of china works, even a broken coffee cup, if you can figure out how to fasten it firmly. No wedding china with the decorative metal band of course.
Step in posts.
We buy insulators by the bag and have them around for just this sort of thing.
It is best to use the insulators. That tape can be grounded out so easily it's not funny.I tried to do mine pefect and still got grounded and drained my fence charger battery. Horses are too darmed smart too when it comes to Electric fence. It can ground out so easy.
