Comments about fitting
If using common garden hosing, cut hose lengthwise and open slightly- put wiring inside and close. Can be reinforced with gaffer tape.
Hydraulic hosing can be wrapped around wiring.
This has worked well at forestry sites and dramatically slowed kea down. If kea are known to be in the area-can be worth doing this as a preventative measure.
