Installation tips for securing a roof window

 

Skylights are difficult to secure. Unfortunately, to our knowledge, there is no ready solution and you have no choice but to use hooks for net attachment.

We have made our roof window, as described below, cat-safe. We obtained the necessary hooks and bars at the hardware store: 

We have screwed a hook in each corner of the roof window frame (inner lining). Then we have cut the bar bought at the hardware store in a way that the top and bottom hooks can be hooked into them. On each side then the bar 5 cms should be left remaining. We have then threaded through these cut bars at the top row of stitches of the BOY cat net and hooked together with the net in the two upper hooks. 

The cat net now falls down like a curtain. Then we pulled the net over the open window down to the window sill where the two lower hooks were attached. We have again a threaded bar through the adjacent row of stitches that we hooked into the two lower hooks. 

On the left and right side, the net is pulled up to the roof window frame. The network must be heaped up a little on the sides. We have now threaded a cord (braided line) into the net adjacent to the bar. We attached this cord (braided line) to the top and bottom bar (next to the hook).
