Harrod Slot & Lock® Storm Proof 1.8m Walk In Fruit Cage
The Harrod Slot & Lock® Storm Proof Fruit & Vegetable Cage 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
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.

The fruit cage went together easily and is sturdy. I am really pleased with it.
Brilliant service and brilliant product! I ordered a second cage to match the one we were given for Christmas. Arrived on time, easy to erect and good quality.
I use these cages on my allotment - I now have two - for brassicas - brilliant because once inside I can move around between plants easily and second the plants themselves have room to breath and grow unlike these tunnel-like arrangements using hoops etc. Once you get the hang of the instructions it is OK. The cages can easily be dismantled and cleaned over winter if need and moved to a different position next season. The net is designed to hang inside the frame but I have found it best to slot it over the frame - although you need more than one pair of hands to do it. Harrod staff are very helpful offering good service and advice.
