First, assemble the two parts of the fastener. Insert the straight portion of the hook into the hole in the washer. The silver side of the washer should be inserted first.
Insert the washer about an inch through the hook as this will provide sufficient wire to grip with a pair of pliers later in the installation process.
Once on the roof, check under the solar panels for birds, squirrels and other small animals. Remove any nest from below the panel/s by lifting the panel/s where the nests are and removing any nests, babies, eggs, etc.

Our critter guard system works with almost all solar panels that have a frame around them which is probably over 98% of all residential solar panels installed. Our system will work with almost any solar panel that has a lip. What is needed is a frame with a lip around the bottom edge, where it rests on the racking. Very few solar panels do not have any lip at the bottom. Solar panels that do not have a lip may still have mounting holes which may be used to attach the hook.
The amount of time required to install a squirrel guard around the perimeter of your solar panels will depend on the size of your solar array as well as the layout of your panels. A simple array of 20 panels laid out in a rectangle can take just a couple of hours while a more complex layout with a non-rectangular configuration could take 4-5 hours. While it is possible to install the guard on your own, it is much easier if you have 2 people installing the guard together. Make sure that you do not leave any areas that are not covered as squirrels will find a way in through these openings. Please view our gallery for installation examples that could help you prepare for your installation.
The Squirrel Guard kit includes 100′ of our PVC-coated galvanized steel wire mesh along with our easy to install squirrel guard fasteners (clips) that are designed to work with most brands of solar panels. Each kit comes with 100 fasteners. A 100′ wire installation requires between 75-80 clips so you will have sufficient for a 100′ installation.
Professional installers usually charge between $7 – $12 per linear foot. With a DIY kit, you can do this for $1.30 or less per linear foot. If you need 150 linear feet installed, the savings could be over $1000. If you are located in New Jersey, we offer an installation service starting at $8 / linear foot including materials. Costs in New Jersey will be slightly higher if the roof pitch is greater than 25 degrees and / or the panels are close to the roof edges. We also install in New York City, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and parts of upstate New York. Prices for States outside New Jersey are slightly higher depending on distance from our office. We use our own squirrel guard materials so you can be confident that the materials you purchase from us are of the highest quality and will provide years of service.
