A bracket is an optional extra. It’s merely an extension of a post kit that provides a different angle and a slight lift to the fence rollers. If you have a flat-top fence with low climbability aspect, like a metal or concrete fence, the use of brackets is not necessary.
We recommend installing with brackets in the following scenarios:
>> Your fence is made out of wood, which is an easy-to-sink-claws-in material
>> Your fence has vertical posts that separate fence panels. Brackets will help lift Oscillot rollers and clear the posts
>> Your fence has horizontal beams under the fence line. A beam can be used as a “step” that a cat can use as a leverage to push itself up and over the system
Rotate the bracket position to achieve a different angle of installation to best fit your fence design.
IMPORTANT! When installing with brackets you must ensure that the gap between the fence panel and an Oscillot roller is not large enough for a cat to squeeze through.
