Are anti climb spikes legal?
Also question is, are Anti Cat spikes legal?
All types of cat spikes are legal as long as they don't harm the cat. Specially designed, humane, plastic, blunt cat spikes are the safest. Although the law does not say that adding metal pigeon spikes or barbed wire to a fence is illegal, these type of cat spikes may become illegal if a pet cat is injured as a result.
One may also ask, is it illegal to put carpet grippers on your fence? Carpet gripper is not the answer to fence security. Don't use carpet gripper on your fence as it's not designed for such use and would not stop a burglar climbing your fence (they simply put a coat over the top of it).
Just so, what can I put on my fence to stop burglars?
Add lightweight trellis to gates and fences and plant some prickly plants to make it harder for burglars to climb over. Gravel driveway and path; gravel driveways and paths make it harder for burglars to go undetected.
Can I put a trellis on top of my fence?
There is no legal difference between trellis and fencing. So – in theory – the height of your trellis must be no more than 2 metres. Some councils even encourage people to add trellis to the tops of their fences, because it is a good burglar deterrent.
