" I was lucky as builders are repairing chimney, so had easy access to fit cowl. They quoted £100+vat. This was £35 icluding vat and fitted a treat. Took less than 10 minutes to fit - looks good - does the job. Great value and product. "

" Absolutely delighted with the purchase of this item and have check out other on the market. This is equally as good as what others are selling if not better. Some others charge a ridiculous amount of money for less quality than this one. "

" Have been suffering from pigeons (noise & deposits) down our chimney for years. Put this up a few days ago, problem solved, pigeons avoid our chimney stack completely now. Easy to fit, once you get on the roof, which was the hardest part for me!! "

" The delivery arrangements with Screwfix are first class so well pleased with the purchase process. The cowl was well packaged and straight forward to fit. Time will tell how it survives the rigours of all the smoke, fumes and weather but for the price and quality of materials I am sure I will get my monies worth. Would certainly recommend this as worthy of consideration if you are looking for a chimney cowl to keep out the birds and help the air flow. "

" Bought the cowl to stop pigeons from using the chimney as a toilet! Well made and very easy to install. Don't be put off by the size when you get it out of the box as the chimney pot really is much larger close up than on the ground! One thing, familiarise yourself with the workings of the quick fit jubilee clip as it isn't apparent initially how the quick adjustment works and then roughly adjust it then fit it over the chimney pot before placing the vowel over the pot.

No more Jackdaws or Rain!
27 Nov 2012
By aixlad
, Oxfordshire
" Needed this to keep the Jackdaws and Rain out of my woodburner flue. Once you gain access to the top of the chimney pot, it's very easy to fit, and takes just a few minutes. The catalogue description can be misleading as it says it fits pots up to 250mm diameter, my new chimney pot has an outside diameter of 265mm! I bought this anyway, and once collected I found the internal diameter of the base (which fits directly on to the top of the chimney pot), was 300mm, and the supplied stainless steel jubilee fixing clip can accommodate a pot size of up to 312mm in diameter. For a Clay/Terracotta chimney pot insert, which would serve the same function, I was quoted £156 + VAT, so was pleased with this as a solution. Hope this helps. "

" Previous 'wigwam' birdguard did not stop starlings and small birds forcing their way into the chimney pot and down the flue. This birdguard gives complete protection from all birds (strong starling types and small types) with the added advantage of keeping 'direct' rain out. "

Work and looks great, but..
4 Feb 2013
By MrWill
, Worcestershire
" This product is strong and effective enough to keep bird, debris, and rain from coming down the chimney. It doesn't look "odd" on top of the chimney pot.
I bought one in May 2010, and in January 2013 was awakened by the sound of the lid of the guard tumbling down the roof. Seems that the aluminium uprights connecting the top had worn through. The rest of it is still securely fixed to the chimney pot.
Ok, it's a harsh evironment up there for it with the wind, rain, and smoke from the chimney, but you need to be aware that this product had not lasted even three years.
Off to buy a replacement now... "
