Harrod Slot & Lock® Storm Proof 1.8m Walk In Fruit Cage (Natural)
The Harrod Slot & Lock® Storm Proof Fruit & Vegetable Cage in Natural Finish is a superb value 1.8m high walk-in fruit cage, especially for fruit and vegetable growers, providing a simple and cost effective way to protect your plants.
Made by us in the UK
The fruit cage kit uses strong 16mm diameter aluminium tubing and our exclusive award winning Harrod Slot & Lock® connectors, which are screwed firmly in place to create a sturdy fruit cage structure.
The fruit cage kit stands 1.8m high, includes braces for extra rigidity and has a Zip Net Access Strip which can be located anywhere on the netting for a convenient re-sealable entry for easy access to your crops.
The innovative Award Winning storm proof clips secures the netting to the framework and ensures that in high winds and snowfall the netting will detach from the framework preventing the framework from being damaged or bent.
The fruit cage comes complete with fitted 7mm soft mesh butterfly netting which when fixed to the stormproof clips can be easily moved along the framework for easy access to your plants.
The durable corrosion resistant aluminum tube framework sits 20cm/8" into the ground - we recommend a hole former for installation when the ground is tough.

Looking to create your own fruit garden from scratch then these soft fruit bushes will provide you with your own fresh berries and fruits for many years to come.
We found this easy to assemble and erect - and we have erected several different fruit cages over the past few years. We chose it because other cages have been damaged by high winds and/or heavy snow. High winds blow the net off the frame (as described) but it is easy to clip back on and the frame has remained undamaged. The single zip entry was easy to install and works a treat. All in all this is a very well-designed product and we would buy it again.
My order arrived very quickly and we were able to build the fruit cage quite easily. I was particularly impressed with the way the zip is put in. It is now protecting my fruit bushes and is a very welcome additional to my kitchen garden.
