How to buy your Oscillot® system

 

Most people install the Oscillot system themselves or get a local handyperson to do it. On this page, we’ll guide you through the process of measuring your fences and working out the components required. If you need help, just contact us and we’ll work with you to get it sorted.

Auckland residents can use our free measure and quote service for Oscillot components, and can choose to have their installation done by us.

Other materials may be required to ensure your cat cannot jump over the Oscillot® System. For example, you may need to prune or band trees, or place guards around “launching pads” such as heat pumps or water tanks. Please see our Special Installations photos for solutions to these situations.

If you have an extremely agile cat, such as a Bengal, you may need to provide additional cat-proofing measures.

We are happy to offer advice based on years of experience.

Step 2: Measure your fence and work out your requirements

Use the following illustration to guide you in calculating how many Paddle Kits and Dual Knuckle Post Kits you’ll need.

We suggest that first you count the number of posts you’ll need, then subtract the number of paddles you’ll need. That will give you the number of additional posts you’ll need.

You may decide to use Brackets on some or all of your Dual Knuckle Posts.
