Cat Fence: I Use Posts with the Fold... (Video 2 of 4)

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop, the e-commerce of Rete Plastic. Welcome to the second video in a series of four dedicated to creating fences to prevent your cats from leaving the property. In this video, we will focus on solutions to make the posts climb-proof, an issue that can be quite complicated. We will look at common problems, possible solutions, and what the market offers.

Extensions for T-Posts

If you have T-section posts, there are special extensions available that can be easily attached to the post. These extensions, equipped with a fold, are fixed with two bolts and can have an internal or external fold. At Fenceshop, we recommend an internal fold towards the property to make it even harder for cats attempting to climb over.

Custom Made Posts

Another option is custom-made posts. These posts can have a negative fold that goes inward and downward, making it even harder for the cat to climb. These accessories, as shown in the photos of our first video, are custom-made and thus more expensive than standard extensions. However, they are very effective in preventing cat escapes.

DIY Solutions

For those who prefer a DIY approach, there are many creative solutions. For example, placing two T-posts side by side can be a quick and cost-effective method to raise the fence. Other people might cut and bend the posts, weld iron pieces, or use recycled panels. While these solutions can work, it is also important to consider aesthetics to avoid a messy result.

Attention to Detail

Regardless of the chosen solution, it is essential to carefully inspect the garden to identify and close all possible holes and gaps. Cats are skilled at finding even the smallest passages, so it is crucial to be meticulous in checking the fence.


In conclusion, there are various options to make a cat-proof fence, from extensions for T-posts and custom-made posts, to DIY solutions. Each has its pros and cons, but all can be effective if implemented correctly. We invite you to visit our websites and to see our realizations and find the products we discussed. Thank you for your attention and see you in the next video!
