Horse Guards offer extra safety for horses and other animals by completely encapsulating the mounting plate and U-bolts on the Hay Ring Cover, therefore protecting the animals from rubbing against any sharp edges. Horse Guards are made from 4″ PVC caps and 4″ PVC pipe drilled to fit this application. The fit is tight and stays together well, but still can be removed if need be. PVC glue can be added if desired, but if you wish to remove later you will have to cut it off.
**Horse Guards will only fit on the most recent roof bar base plate design. If you have an older version, you must cut off the corners of the base plate so that it will fit inside the 4″ PVC cap**
