Our Line Guard 1 Pack helps to protect one power line from squirrels and other critters. If you have ever had a power outage because of a squirrel gaining access to critical equipment, you’ll understand the importance of our product. Many small animals climb on power lines to get from one place to another. The issue is that these small animals can cause power damage within your home or cause power outages across a utility system or substation.
Additionally, our line guard product can also protect damages to critical lines and components used by telecom companies and cable companies. The main benefit of purchasing our Line Guard 1 Pack, is that your power lines will be protected from squirrels and other critters ever reaching the power line. Keeping your power lines protected and working properly is our main goal.
Our Line Guard 1 Pack protects thousands of customers across the United States from typical animals including squirrels and rats. Additionally, our products are also used outside of the U.S. for animals like snakes, sloths, and even monkeys who can also cause power outages and other damages to critical infrastructures. Through our Line Guard 1 Pack, we can keep your power lines and telecommunication equipment safe and humanely deter each animal.
The Line Guard 1 Pack includes 5 rollers, 2 wheels, 2 “L” brackets, 6 stainless-steel ties, and 2 conductor clamps. Installation instructions are included to complete the Line Guard 1 Pack. We highly suggest hiring a professional power line technician to install the Line Guard 1 Pack.
To start with installation, you will need to attach one of the “L” brackets to the bottom of the power line, making sure to use the stainless-steel ties and a conductor clamp to secure the bracket. Next, the rollers will be connected and placed on the powerline, making sure that they spin freely. Keep in mind, that if you have a thicker power line, you might need to trim the rollers to fit correctly. The rollers on each end of the power line will have a wheel attached to the side where a squirrel could get on the powerline. Together, the freely spinning wheels and rollers, help to deter squirrels and other critters from reaching your powerline. To see a visual of the installation process, including instructions on where to trim the rollers (only if necessary), watch our Line Guard Installation Video.

For overhead power line applications, Critter Guard recommends this product be installed by qualified power line technicians. This is not absolutely required, but is good practice. It is not required to de-power the line. Assure the conductor is properly insulated and not showing signs of wear or degradation. For Substation applications, position one end of the Line Guard approximately 5 feet outside the vertical perimeter of the substation fence. For other installations, position one end of the Line Guard approximately 2 feet from the power pole or vertical structure (i.e., building). DO NOT TOUCH LIVE TERMINALS or CONDUCTORS. Wear appropriate safety gloves.
