Dog guard

Post by Gromit on Fri Aug 25, 2017 2:14 pm

Well, finally got round to it. The dog is only 10 years old!!!  Whistle1

Easy enough to make and it folds up like a trellis for storage, to about the size of a golf umbrella.

Nice one Gromit. Lyn bought one at a motorhome show last year. It's good but was expensive. They're a boon in the hot weather.

Cheers Al.

Thank you both.

I saw them at the shows and they are very good, and well worth the money. I can say that with certainty after making mine. It looks like a ten minute job, but just the cutting sanding and smoothing the edges takes well over half an hour.

I wanted a much slimmer one so it folds up small enough to store next to the latch side of the hab door. I'll show the fixing tomorrow. It's a neat job, even though I say it myself!!   blushes    had_idea

Photo of a short length of elastic cord to tie in the folded dog guard just inside the door, by the sink.

Not wanting to make any more holes than necessary I picked out the cover over one of the panel fixings, drilled a hole in the centre and fastened the cord at the back. A tiny bit of impact adhesive on the tangs of the cover will hold it in place, and should we sell the van I can easily get a new cover from A/S. A very small screw hook is the only damage to the van, and that is so small it could be easily concealed.

She will be when she realises she can lie there and look out.

I've never known such a nosey little git, and it will save her sitting on my shoulder like a parrot so she can gaze out of the window!
