Installing Poly Hardware for Bird Netting

One of the keys to a successful bird netting installation is how well the netting is fastened. The following guidelines will help you install the Poly Hardware correctly. NOTE: Each netting installation is different and some of the guidelines may not apply to your application. If you have questions or need help, please Contact Nixalite.

We provide detailed instructions for Installing Poly Hardware -  Poly Hardware Installation Instructions 
Mounting Hardware: Each Poly Clip has 2 mounting holes (5/16" and 3/16" diameter). Make sure the hardware you use will fit through these mounting holes. You can purchase and use Nixalite's stainless steel mounting hardware, or you can furnish your own.

  1. Snap a Poly Clip shut every 12" along the rolled edge of the netting.

Installing PolyClips along a perimeter cable: some netting installations use a tensioned cable for support.
  1. With the Poly Clip open, position the cable inside the hinge at the back of the clip.
  2. Snap the Poly Clip shut over the cable and netting every 12".
