Installation of the Rat Blocker could not be simpler: A purpose made, extendable handle enables the Rat Blocker to be lowered in through the manhole, where it can be easily manoeuvred into place. Once a feeling of resistance against the sides of the pipe is encountered, the installation handle can be turned clockwise to tighten and lock the Rat Blocker securely in place. The handle is then easily detached and installation is complete. Download the installation guide here.
