Our pole guard additional rollers connect to the pole guard plate halves to deter squirrels, or other small critters, from climbing up your power line poles. Critter Guard created these rollers from very hard plastic, because when a critter tries to put their claws on a roller, there is no traction. As the critter is trying to reach the other side of the blockade created by the Pole Guard, the roller will spin causing those determined squirrels to fall off or turn the other direction.
The additional pole guard rollers are intended for customers who need to replace their previous pole guard rollers or are purchasing them for other uses such as on a cable, rope, or line suspending a bird feeder. Critter Guard encourages you to be creative with the additional rollers; numerous other customers have found the Pole Guard can be uniquely adapted for many other uses, like limiting access to the bird feeder line. In relation to the Pole Guard, the rollers must spin freely to be effective. The rollers will protect the Pole Guard so that squirrels and other rodents are not able to get to the other side of the pole.
Together the pole guard plate halves and rollers create our pole guard kit , along with the mounting hardware. The entire kit includes many other pieces that are vital to completing the perfect pole guard to deter squirrels and other critters. Our additional rollers are intentionally offered for purchase if you are needing to replace old pole guard rollers.
In the rare instance where you simply need roller replacements, offering these additional pole guard rollers, gives you the option to spend a minimal amount on rollers versus buying a whole pole guard kit.

For wooden power pole 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 pole is in good condition. Position the Pole Guard assembly approximately 8 - 12 feet above ground level, or above the lowest point where a “critter” could jump onto the pole. Assure location and height of installation is clear of any objects a critter could use to swing from or grab (i.e., conduits, anchors, spikes).
