The Conversion System for Shorter Fences will allow you to add up to 3' overall to the height of your existing fence... Now you can use Purrfect Fence to Cat-Proof your fence or wall even if it is only 3' high!
The Conversion System for Shorter Fences will convert your shorter fence into a escape-proof fence for cats. The kit includes an (12) Cat-Proofer spring-loaded arms, extender for each arm, the associated mounting brackets and a 6' tall roll of fence per 100 feet.
The extension tubes are made of thick 14 gauge steel (an arm set as high as possible on an extension tube can hold well over 50lbs). The scrunched end of the extension tube slides inside of the leg of the Conversion System Arms. The included high-strength epoxy bonds the pieces together. Once glued up, the extended arms slide into two mounting plates spaced a minimum of 4" apart secured to your fence posts with the top mounting plate set as high as possible on your post. Slide the arm to be at the desired height, tighten a set screw on each plate and your arm is secured to your post. Repeat this for all your posts and the fence material is ready to install.
Please note: If the fence is chain link, decorative aluminum or other metal picket fence you will need U-Bolts to secure the mounting bracket to the posts. You can use only one U-Bolt per bracket with this system so purchase one set of U-Bolts per post.
Items of note when planning your order/layout:
-Each existing fence is unique! The maximum span between arms is 12-14 feet. 8-10 Feet is preferred. Count and measure the distance between your posts to ensure that a kit will cover your fence.
-Gates in your fence line require special consideration. Read below for more information on gate planning and installation.
Gates need to be considered separately for your layout plan. Each gate in your existing fence is likely to need additional components depending on the location and operation.
Many outward swinging gates require 2-3 extra arm/bracket(s) per gate. Your situation may vary. If you have questions please contact us.
