Installation of SquirrelGard™
- Slide the SquirrelGard™ over the jack to confirm proper fit. The SquirrelGard™ should fit snuggly to the base of the lead jack flashing. If it does not fit properly, remove the SquirrelGard™ and hammer to gently reshape the lead jack in order to ensure a proper fit. Remove the SquirrelGard™ from the vent.
- Install the Base Screen around the base of the vent and lead jack flashing. Open the pre-cut center opening of the Base Screen and slide over the vent. (Excess Screen can be trimmed with wire snipers to cover only the exposed base of the lead jack flashing.)
- Apply a bead of caulk down the side of the lead jack flashing. Then, apply a bead of caulk around the lip of the lead jack. (The caulk will adhere the SquirrelGard™ to the vent in order to prevent ‘rattling’ during high wind storms and accidental removal.)
- Slide the SquirrelGard™ over the vent/flashing. Apply spray paint to SquirrelGard™, if not pre-painted. You’re done! It’s as simple as that!
SquirrelGard™ Tip for Best Results: Paint the SquirrelGard™ and Base Screen to match/blend with the roofing system before installing. Allow to dry as necessary.
