Installation tips for building a cat enclosure with telescopic poles and a cat net


A safe way to create a natural outlet for your cat is a (mobile) cat enclosure in the garden. Depending on the available space, it can be built to any desired size. 

The installation takes a little more time only at the first construction. Please note at the network selection that you don't choose the transparent - Boy-cat net. Gehege - Boy-KatzennetzeTransparent nets are too stiff for an enclosure and can therefore be difficult to handle. All BOY-Cat-Nets made from nylon yarn (extra strong BOY cat nets, standard BOY cat nets and BOY cat nets with stainless steel thread) can be easily processed. The cat net to be used should should be handled above with a border edging and down with a lead rope. The mesh size must be selected according to the size of your cat. 

You can determine the shape of the enclosure by yourself. Hammer the lawn mounts into the grass with the same distances according to the desired shape. (please do not hammer on the plate but on the pipe in the middle, otherwise it might break off from the pipe) The lawn mount gives the telescopic rod a firm support and simplifies the subsequent assemblance and disassemblance of the enclosure. Should the enclosure be constructed on a soft surface, we recommend then our extra long BOY lawn mounts (approximately 50 cm long, together with the telescopic rod extensions) for use. The normal 30 cm long BOY lawn mounts are not suitable for soft floors. 

Now plug the enclosure rods/telescopic rods (only the lower pipe) in the lawn mounts. Remove any fixing screws. Thread the net to the telescopic rods. Please make sure that the telescopic rod is threaded in a vertical row of stitches. Let the cat net on the ground about 40 cms inside before pulling the first stitch. It is sufficient when the telescopic rods are threaded by about 5 meshes every 30 cms. In order to get the threading work, the mesh size for BOY telescopic poles should be 30-50 mms for a diameter of 19 mms. 

If the cats net has no border eding delivered from us, thread through the top row of stitches of the net, the braided line. That's how you prevent the subsequent collapse of the cats net. If the net is threaded everywhere, use the upper part of the BOY telescopic rod for the lower part. Warning - the upper, thinner part of the telescopic rod is shorter than the lower pipe and therefore must not be simply pushed in and then released, otherwise it will disappear in the lower pipe. Therefore, keep hold of the upper rod and pull the rod together with the net up to the desired height. Turn (only from now on) the fixing screw again and adjust to the desired height. Fasten the net with a net binder together with the braided line through the hole provided in the telescopic rods.

Katze im GehegeThe net for an enclosure should be supported at the bottom with a lead rope. The lead rope holds the net firmly to the ground, so that the cat cannot escape as easily underneath it. For fixed bottom support of the network attachment, pegs shall be used. The smaller the distance between the mounting pegs, the more secure the enclosure. For unusually lively cats that like to jump into the net or climb on it, we recommend for stabilization the telescopic rods with braided line and a fastening pegs. 

The entrance to the enclosure must overlap, as shown in the diagram. 

A very important point should not be forgotten in an enclosure - be absolutely certain that the enclosure has enough shade and always plenty of drinking water is available.
