Face-mounted on timber fence

This method offers maximum effectiveness to keep your cat contained, but will not keep other cats from entering your yard.
It is ideal if your fence has posts that extend above the top rail, which could necessitate using many extra Oscillot posts.
And it keeps your Oscillot system out of sight from neighbours.

Acrylic (polycarbonate/perspex/lexan) sheets

Timber fences with a rail less than 400mm below the top will need clear acrylic sheet attached to the rail so that your cat cannot use it as a platform from which to jump over the Oscillot®.
