Measure the length
of the spot where you will place a Kitty Klipİ. For long lengths of fence
line, you can use the entire 10" length of PVC pipe -- it will just be a bit
unwieldy and will require two people for cutting and installation. One end of
the pipe will likely be flared and can be inserted into the end of the next
Kitty Klipİ to ensure uninterrupted coverage.
Cut the PVC pipe to
that length using a hand saw.
Using a hand saw or an
electric jig saw, cut a long slit along the length of the pipe. Most PVC pipe of
this nature has some printing on the outside that runs the length of the pipe.
Use this as a guide to keep your cut straight, or use a marker of some sort. It
is important that the length wise cut be straight.
upon the surface that is being fitted with Kitty Klipsİ, you may need to make a
second cut that parallels the one you just made.
This can help in the actual
attachment of the Kitty Klipsİ onto the desired location. However, it is
important not to cut too much out of the circumference, or the Kitty Klipİ will
lose its grip.
The final step is to attach
the Kitty Klipİ around the desired spot. The pipe will wrap around the area,
preventing your cats from digging in their claws.
"My Kitty Klips were
completed 1 week ago. The cats love it!!! I found that the "thin wall" PVC
pipe is the cheapest and easiest to use. Thanks for the great suggestion.
I have reason to believe that the Kitty Klips may keep my dog from climbing
the fence also."
