The Critter Pole Guard is a mounted barrier that prevents squirrels from gaining access to overhead switches, transformers, and power lines. The Pole Guard extends less than one foot from the pole so as not to interfere with routine maintenance. If necessary, the rollers can be easily removed and re-installed.
The patented Pole Guard is injection molded of heavy-duty polypropylene, highly resistant to environmental stress cracking, and UV protection to maintain color quality. Our squirrel guards have been protecting pole-mounted infrastructure service-free for over a decade.
The right fit
The Pole Guard is engineered to fit a 10 to 12-inch diameter pole. The plate is made of Acetal, a resin designed exclusively for extreme outdoor applications.
The mounting plate extends less than 10" from the pole. The rollers attach to the plate and can be easily removed leaving a clearance of only 4.5”.
Chew on this
The plate is secured by four zinc-coated nails. A series of rollers encompass the Pole Guard, providing 360-degree impassible protection from squirrels and other small rodents.
For poles of smaller diameter, P&C Flex conduit is provided as filler between the plate and pole.
