Prevention is better than Cure! The original Rats stopper since 15 years!
With our rat protection for ropes you are safely protected against rats on board.
Rats and other vermin can cross dock lines and even swim up to anchor chains to climb on board your boat.
Any food on board will attract these uninvited and harmful pests.
The SWI-TEC Rat Guard takes up very little storage room, installs easily and can be used in port when docked or at anchor. The split-hub design allows the guards to be installed after the dock lines have been secured or the anchor has been set.
Installation: Open the grey split-hub and close it around the line or chain. The inside of the central section features dual rubber baffles that close tightly around the line or chain keeping the guard in place. Depending on the model, 1 or 2 pairs of different rubber inserts are supplied for the right size of rope or chain. Then just clip on the black disc and the Rat Guard is ready for use.
Operation mode: When a rat encounters the disc and attempts to climb over it, the disc begins to spin around and the animal drops into the water. Smaller vermin are not able to climb up the slippery disc or pass through the center because the tight-fitting rubber baffles are preventing small vermin from passing through the center of the hub.
No animal will get hurt.
