Required deployment tools
Ensure you have the right tools to deploy devices.
You need a folding 16-foot (5 meter) ladder. A folding ladder is easy to carry through the uneven ground of a forest.
Waterproof carrying boxes
You may need one or more workboxes for devices and tools, depending on how many devices are planned for a day's deployment.
The following is an example good quality toolbox.
1st box - Silvanet devices
Use one of the toolboxes for carrying sufficient Silvanet sensors for a day's deployment.
2nd box - additional tools
Use the second toolbox to carry the following tools:
Knife and shears (or snips) for cutting branches and crop wire (if required)
(optional) Crop wire for temporarily deploying devices
Compass (analogue or digital)
Cordless drill (for drilling holes for treenails)
10 mm wood drill bit (an optional 6mm wood drill bit to begin drilling into hardwood trees)
Hammer (for treenails)
Pencil and notepad
17mm wrench (for U-clamps)
Small Phillips screwdriver (for connecting Ethernet cable on Border Gateway)
Small axe for removing a small section of bark
