Additional Tools Needed

 Ladder
            Wire cutter or strong scissors
            Tape measure
            Nail set
            Hammer
            Electric drill
            Countersink bit
            Phillips head bit

 
  1. Use a nail set and hammer to make a small dimple about a quarter-inch down on each end cap and wall mount where you want a self-tapping screw to go. Enlarge this with an electric drill and a countersink bit, giving the point of the screw a fair-sized dimple to rest in. Then lay all of the extender arms on the ground (lawn is better than cement), place an end cap over the correct end of the extender arm (the end with only about 6 inches of arm following a slight turn (see below), and attach the end cap to the arm with a self-tapping screw, applying the screw with an electric drill and a Phillips head bit.

  1. Attach the extender arms to your existing fence posts or building using the supplied mounting clamps. Plan on using 1 extender arm at each corner, 1 at each end, and 4 at each gate, and then spacing the rest of the arms out as evenly as possible. Use two wall mounts to attach each arm, fastening the wall mounts to your wall or fence with the supplied wood screws or (if the material is not wood) the correct mounting screws for your material (non-wood screws not included).

  1. Level and center the extender arms along your fence line to make sure that your cat fence will be straight and even. It is important that the extender arms be level to avoid any installation issues. As you level each arm, secure it in place by using an electric drill with a Phillips head bit to screw a self tapping screw through the clamp and into the extender arm.

  1. Starting with the first extender arm in your fence, attach the poly fencing material to the cap on this first arm by placing a zip-lock tie tie through the fencing and through the hole at the tip of this cap. Continue down the fence line, attaching the fencing to the tip of each extender arm’s cap. Arrange things so that the full 4 feet of fencing hangs down from the cap tips.

  1. Going back to the start of the fence, attach the fencing material to the underside of the extender arms using five zip ties per arm.

  1. Secure the bottom of the poly fencing material to your fence or building using an appropriate fastener (Not Included). Fence staples (U-nails) are recommended for attaching this material to an existing wooden fence.
