Any suggestions as to how to make it difficult for a person (kids) intent
on intruding lifting a fence panel and climbing under it?
I thought of wedges but these will probably cause warping as it will reduce
The fence is new and backs onto some public lock-up garages.
I drilled into the bottom of the fence rail and into the gravel board,
stuck a plug in with no nails for good measure and then screwed each
panel down at each end.
Might add they are panels I made so the rails are quite sturdy and
each slat has four screws in it too.
1) Sharp nails poking through the bottom of the fence right where their
hands will be. Of course, the nails were there quite by accident! Nice
rusty ones will make them remember what they did wrong! :) (cue evil laugh)
2) Not so accidentally, a line of razor wire on the inside of the fence that
doesn't lift with the panel
3) A Rottweiller
4) Just borrow my missus, she'll scare them away ! :)
Actually, I like the drilling a hole at the top and sticking a bloody great
bolt right through. Back this up with a security light for nighttime.
Maybe you could extend this idea with metal poles from post to post and make
them look like an atractive part of the fence?
