Snake Shield - Solar Powered Snake Repellent [DMT026]

Do Snakes scare your Family, Pets & Livestock?
Deter snakes away from your patio or your garden and away from your family, pets and livestock. With Dogmaster Trainers Eco-Friendly solar powered Snake shield.

The Solar Snake Shield is a solar powered Solar Snake Repeller to help keep snakes away. This unit works by emitting a multi pulsing vibration through the ground and a sound to deter snakes. A snake is able to pick up these vibrations through its body sensors and fools it into thinking there is danger ahead. A solar panel and a rechargeable accumulator battery collects power by day for operation at night. When the accumulator battery is fully charged, it can supply enough power for around-the-clock operation even on dull days.

The Solar Snake Shield will provide a brief vibration and sonic beep which will vary from 30 second intervals to 35 second intervals increasing to 40, 45 and 50 second intervals in a loop before returning to the original 30 second interval. The Solar Snake repellent also features LED lights which will turn on automatically at night and turn off when it is charging (during the day). The LED light acts as both a battery indicator and a location indicator at night to help avoid trips and falls while providing additional lighting to the yard. The LED operates in 2 modes: solid light and flashing. It will switch between two different modes every 30 minutes. The solar panel on top of the snake shields collects energy that is stored in a rechargeable accumulator battery. When the accumulator battery is fully charged, it can supply enough power for around-the-clock operation even on overcast days. Although the battery should last 18 months or more, we strongly suggest it be replaced every spring to repel snakes.

 How many Snake Shields do I need?

For a normal house block we recommend two units one in the front and one in the back, for higher risk areas four snake repellents.
A larger garden the 4-6 solar snake repellers will give good results.

For larger sections we suggest space the snake deterrents at 40 metre intervals around your boundary as a general as a rule of thumb the following should be used as a guide.

How to set up the Solar Snake Shield

Step 1) Critical …Before using for the first time the Solar Snake Shield will need to be fully charged before being turned ON to obtain maximum affect. To do this, simply snap together the male & female wire connector of the head to the opposing connectors of the aluminum stake. Leave the Solar Snake Repeller in full sun for two days or up to 3 to 4 days when overcast. Once the battery has been fully charged, turn the solar snake shield ON by removing the “Small Green Cap” which is positioned next to the wires protruding from the bottom of the solar head.
The “Green Cap” is the on/off button. When the Cap is covering the metal pin inside the top, the Snake Shield is turned OFF. When the Cap is removed from the top, the Snake Shield is turned ON. The ON/OFF Cap is positioned inside the head to avoid degradation of external rubber on off button from the sun.

Step 2) Positioning your Snake Shield(s) …. Choosing the correct location for each unit. The Snake Repeller radiates in all directions (full 360 degrees) up to approximately a 15m radius or 30m diameter (about 650 sq m). However we do recommend a 5m overlap (see drawing)

To make the best use of the Snake Shield(s) we strongly recommend installation of 2 or more, about 25 meters apart. Firmer ground gives a better result. Clay soil will transmit the furthest, while sandy soil will reduce the diameter of the signal. Waterlogged soil should be avoided.

Except for concrete walls/buildings with a foundation deeper than 100mm, the Snake deterrents signal will travel through the ground under fences, shallow concrete paths, sheds and behind retaining walls to get rid of any snakes that may be hiding around them. The Snake Repellers work well in long grass areas. No problem with trees, dog kennels, bushes, chain link fencing, however it is important for the device to have a clear view of the sun to charge its solar powered battery.

Step 3) Installing Solar Snake Repeller in the ground:

A) Remove the plastic covering on the aluminum ground probe before installing.
B) Make the ground hole with great care, as it is a CRITICAL step. When making the hole for the aluminum stake (probe) keeps the soil firm. DO NOT just dig a hole and fill around the stake as the loose soil will reduce the effective diameter of the signal. The hole must only be driven, use either a crow bar with a point, a round dowel, a metal tube or metal rod about the same diameter (but no larger) than the probe. NEVER use a hammer to drive in the aluminum probe (stake), and NEVER, force the tube into the ground by pushing down on the plastic top/solar panel. The head should only be added once the tube is firmly in place. As a final positioning before the head is installed you may carefully push the probe with a block of softwood (like Pine) placed over the tube, but remember probe (stake) must not be deformed or damaged, otherwise the plastic head will not fit on correctly.
C) Leave about 50mm of aluminum stake above the ground, more if the area is prone to flooding. The unit is weatherproof, but is not waterproof: Rain presents no problem, however the top of the aluminum tube must never be underwater. If there is the potential for hail the unit should be either covered or removed. In winter (if you are not concerned about snakes) we strongly recommend the units be stored undercover.

Step 4:

Installing the head: Now that the battery is fully charged, and the ground probe is in place it’s time to join the red connectors on the white wires starting the vibrator and sound. If you have more than one unit it is recommended to stagger the starting times. In other words when starting a second unit wait for the beep from the closest unit and then join the wires about 25 to 30 seconds later.

To start the Snake Repellent MP Plus simply press the On/Off rubber covered button on the underside of the head. When starting for the first time you will know the snake deterrent is performing correctly if you hear the unit go through it’s 3 stage multi pulse cycle. First a single beep, followed by a triple beep, followed by 5 beeps.

With the activation test over, within about 60 seconds you will hear a single beep starting the first 2 day rotation of the 3 different pulses.
