Just use carpet gripper...

Much cheaper, much more effective!

Would this stop cats climbing over my fence? Is carpet gripper effective on them?

I imagine it would be as effective as this product...

Given that both look about the same width, if installed the same way I cant see how a cat could avoid gripper or this....

What's the legality of running something like this along the top of your fence? Had some little git come into my garden and rummage through the shed. Was thinking about barbwire (nothing prominent, obscure from view) but was told that I will need to put up a sign stating barbwire installed etc...

Carpet gripper is an excellent idea!

Agree. I put carpet grips on mine.

Got gripper rod on my fence, cats still climb on it

I've got something similar on top of my fence and the cats somehow still manage to walk along it.

Put this sort of stuff on top of our walls and the sign supplied was tiny. Guessed that as neither cats nor burglars were too bothered about reading it didn't need to be bigger. Kept cats away for quite a while but they ignored it eventually. Have buried carpet grippers under mulching to deter cats from digging in my borders.

If you are considering erecting barbed wire or other such fence topping, it must comply with Section 164 of the Highways Act 1980. The general rule to be applied is to ensure that reasonable steps are taken to prevent injury. It must not overhang and must incline inwards.

Tried these. Don't work .... Not sharp enough. Use razor wire with an appropriate signage.

if i put this all over window sill on the of side of a window bay would it stop pigeons congregating their and defecating ?

and how long and wide are these 9 pieces?

I use organic self-installing barbed wire - better known as Blackberries.

It has the advantage of giving several Kg of fruit every year, but does need cutting back to keep it under control.

Very effective as you would need big cutters and some time to even attempt to get through - easier targets elsewhere.

I put razor blades on mine.

Call me a psychopath but I think a burglar/killer/rapist should lose all rights upon entering your home.

When I was a kid in the 70s there was a shop near me with a long, long rear walled garden. The top of the wall was covered in broken bits of bottle glass cemented on to its entire length.

I thought that they made that illegal though and that you could now be sued and fined for injuring someone?

what about non drying burglar paint

top of my wall has glass embedded in it but I inherited it from previous owner if you don't want to get cut then get off my wall

Yet that seems never to apply to commercial properties!. I mean, have you seen the barbed razor wire many such commercial properties have these days?. I might seriously hurt myself on that barbed wire or spikes if I break into my local Tesco, bank, school, off licence etc on all that barbed wire!. I feel its more a legal suggestion than requirement as it depends on how a person tries to enter a property on an unauthorized basis!.

I've a slege hammer and baseball bat that I gather picks itself up and would make hard rapid contact against unauthorized persons in our home. Don't work with residents or invited authorised persons, just unauthorized according to the ghost who lives here having a very strong dislike to burglars that they would become a solid object wielding poltergeist!.

nah, need one or more of … nah, need one or more of thesehttp://www.ubergizmo.com/2014/09/samsung-sgr-a1-robot-sentry-is-one-cold-machine/



might put one of these in the front garden

I know a burglar that sued and won a case for injury hurting themselves on carpet grippers climbing over a fence but I still have em. Sod the burglars I say.

Im not clear on this In the context of gripper rod injuries.... Is it still applicable if they're stealing your carpets?

I have these in my garden to deter cats getting in as I have my bunnies in the garden free range. They're great!

That's because cats are very light, and the surface pressure is low. For something human-weight, these things are a deterrent and are painful but non-damaging.

I think the whole "duty if care" thing is to stop householders from installing punji pits, bear traps, landmines, etc... You are perfectly within your rights to take reasonable measures to protect your property.

Gripper rod injuries are not the only concern.
You could be open to back injury claims if you have any heavy furniture impeding the removal of the floor covering. (_;)

I have these! at the time i also considered about other options;

Carpet gripper will just get rusty and if you have kids around that may climb fences (too retrieve balls) - you don't want them scratching themselves and getting tetanus or anything like that.

I have watched kids trying to climb my fence with these plastic spikes on and it's just as effective at stopping them without any injury caused. A determined burglar could just throw a coat over any spiked wall though, so get CCTV aswell.

EDIT - these do not stop cats.

Edited by: "rastbury" 5th Mar 2015

we have used these for a few years now and checked with police about them, as long as you use a sign/notice on the outside of the fence warning that these are in use then it is legal to use them, if then someone hurts themselves on it then they have been warned.

I might be ahead of the game on this. I recently installed an 'in case of burglary' box containing a spare set of keys and one of those sack trollies that Aldi recently did.

Of course you do

These are good, designed to cause pain but no permanent damage. I Moved to an end of cul-de-sac house & soon discovered little toe rags were using the fence as a short cut. Fitted these & the problem ceased. However I do concur with the natural remedies, Blackberries, climbing roses & Pyracanthas have very vicious thorns.

So you could not use these on a fence between you and your neighbor to try to stop the plague of cats unless you both had signs in either side? Or does this only pertain to a fence that is external on one side? Can you put anything up on a fence that is internal on both sides? Law is such a pain in ...

Note this is not a rant at you Xenababe but at the law, thank you for your comment.

looks like is a complete time wasting to fit and money wasting too,lol

Can I use this instead of http://www.babysafehomes.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/G1100_Nursery.jpg

The law has shifted to protect the criminal. I remember my dad having broken glass prices cemented on the wall, can't get away with that now..

I just can't see these serving any sort of purpose, no silly alternatives that's it.

These any good deter kids sitting on low wall?

permanent damage is so satisfying on potential burglars though
