Let’s get started!

Step 1: Get to know the Oscillot® system

Components are sold in a range of DIY kits intended to cover various length of fences. Each kit includes paddles and dual post kits.

Because each installation is unique, you may require additional dual post kits, so these can be purchased separately.

Brackets, which are recommended when face-mounting on timber fences, should be purchased separately (generally, one bracket for each dual knuckle post).

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.
