-Cap Strip for the lattice
-2 Steel Angle brackets (The heavier the better)
Use 8 - 10-24X1
Use 4- 10-24X3/4
- Hack Saw
Step 1: Measure the width of the space you want to gate off. Time for MATH!
- Subract 2 inches and that will be the size of the Lattice
- The Cap strip needs to be 1/2in longer then the Lattice X2
- The side cap strips can be determined by just eyeing it and marking it out. X2
Once you calculate the correct sizes for your space, cut them out using a hack saw!
Step 2: Place cap strips on all sides of the lattice and zip tie them so they will stay in place to make the bolting easier.
Step 4: You may now cut off the zip ties...
Step 5: Measure and mark where you want your heavy angle brackets. The design we came up with requires one bracket on each side about 4 inches from the edge.
Step 6: Drill the holes and install the smaller bolts (10-24X3/4). Use washers to spread the force out so that the plastic doesn't crack!
Now your done! No more dog going through my bedroom trash cans!!
Heres what ours turned out to look like.
