The Critter Line Guard keeps squirrels from running across overhead lines to access substations, transformers, and pole mounted switches. Two free-spinning wheels act as a jump barrier, and five rollers spin about the line. Meaning, we keep squirrels out at points of entry vs the very expensive alternative of covering all the equipment up.
The patented Line Guard is injection molded of heavy-duty polypropylene, highly resistant to environmental stress cracking, and of course UV protection to maintain color quality. Thousands of these wildlife guards have been on power lines service-free for over a decade.
The outside diameter of the wheel is 12 inches, and fits cable up to 3” in diameter. A 5/16" worm-drive, conductor clamp also firmly secures the L-brackets to the conductor.
There are five rollers that rotate about the line when an animal comes in contact. Each roller is 12”, and they come as two halves for an easy snap together fit. The Line Guard is five feet in length when fully assembled.
