Why it's easy to Install Bird Spikes & Bird Wire
Our Defender™ Bird Spikes and Bird Wire Holders have been designed for ease of use for the customer. Wherever possible, we have tried to make our bird control products standalone systems that have no need for complicated measurements, specialist tools or insider knowledge.
Here are a few reasons why installation is simple:
Bird Spikes and Post Holders with Snap Sections
The Defender™ Bird and Pigeon Spikes feature our patented snap sections. Along the base of the bird spikes are 4 or 9 breakable sections (depending on type of spike you are using) that can simply be snapped to the desired length with your fingers. When installing the pigeon spike, this easy snap system makes it quick to adjust the bird spike to the size of the ledge without needing extra tools.
The Defender™ Bird Post and Wire Holder also features similar snap sections along the base, negating the complicated measuring and specialist tools needed with other older bird wire systems. This makes it simple to fit to any surface that needs protecting from birds and pigeons. (Note: not available on some of the more specialist products.)
Silicone Fixing Holes
When installing Defender™ Bird and Pigeon Control Spikes or the Defender™ Bird Post & Wire, you will notice that along the bases there are patented silicone fixing holes. When the bird spikes or the post and wire holders are pressed onto a ledge, the silicone oozes through, forming rivets that lock the pigeon spikes and post holders firmly to the surface.
Specialist Fixing Silicone
We recommend that, for the best results when installing these bird and pigeon spikes or the bird post and wire holders, you use our Defender™ Bird Spike Fixing Adhesive, as some other silicones may not stick to the base.
