Fastening & Clips

A wire-rope cable system is the most common method of attaching netting to hard surfaces such as cement, brick and vinyl and composite fencing. This is also the method used for the majority of professionally installed Catnets DIY catios. It is cost effective, gives a neat and professional finish and requires the least amount of drilling.

This method involves the installation of a STEEL WIRE ROPE which sits flush against your wall and then then acts as a support for the net to hang. The netting is then attached to the wire rope using our C-CLIPS or cable ties.

How To Measure Up and Order

Step 1: Measure the length of wire required. This may be the length of a wall, the perimeter of a veranda or other. Try to keep the length of any one individual run of wire to a maximum of 65 feet.

Step 2: Determine which type of screw eye or bolt to use:

Eye Bolt Head Expansion Anchor - Brick, Concrete, Hard Surfaces
Screw Eye - Timber
Surface Eyelets – Vinyl Fences, Composite Fences, Metal Surfaces
Eye Bolt with Nut - Miscellaneous

Calculate the number of eyelets you will require to guide the wire along its path. We recommend 1 eyelet per 1 foot and a half plus any additional guiding the wire around corners etc.

Step 3: For each run of wire, you should order 1 turnbuckle and two wire rope grips. The turnbuckle will tension the wire and the wire grips will hold the wire in position at each end.

Step 4: Weave Edging Rope through the edge of the netting to create a strong seam. Then use 4 C-Clips per foot to attach the netting to the stainless wire cable.
