Cat Prickle Strips Spikes Deterrent
You can prevent cats from leaping over your walls/fences by fitting Cat Prickle Strips Spikes strips. These devices are easy to fit using high-tac adhesive or screws. Highly uncomfortable but unlikely to cause injury. They are also a good repellent for amateur intruders!
How to Fit Cat Prickle Strips Spikes?
Before fitting the spikes they should be trimmed to the correct size using a suitable saw. Curves and bends can be formed by immersing in very hot water to soften the plastic. They can also be bent or cut easily along the groves under the base.
Screwing (preferable method)
Cat Prickle Strips Spikes can be screwed using the holes provided (12 holes per strip). More holes can be drilled if necessary. Screwing is ideal for wood fences:
Glueing (not the best option)
You must ensure that surfaces are clean, dry and free from dirt and dust. The base of the strip must also be made rough by using abrasive sand paper to provide a better bond.
Many types of glue and adhesives will not adhere to the polypropylene material used in these prickle strips. As a general rule, exterior quality butyl and solvent based adhesives should provide a reasonable bond.
Silicone, bitumen, acrylic and water-soluble “nail adhesives” will not bond with polypropylene and are not recommended!
Further Fitting Advice
If you need to drill holes to fit the Cat Prickle Strips Spikes (e.g. bricks or concrete), it is recommended to fit a wooden batten first and then screw the strips onto it. This will reduce the number of holes that need to be drilled!
