Introduction: No Scratch - Carpet Protector
The problem I had was that our cat (when locket out of a room) had started clawing our carpets until we would let him in.

Step 1: The Solution
I therefore created an acrylic guard that would slide under the door and thereby protect the carpet.
Materials & tools:
- 6mm Acrylic
- 2mm Acrylic
- Epoxy glue
- Laser cutter
The drawings attached are provided to show how I did this. The actual dimensions will differ depending on the door.
Cut our the pieces and assemble as per the picture so that you have a right-hand and left-hand guard. The vertical pieces can be stuck on using epoxy glue.
Step 2: Usage
Once in the room and the door is closed, slide the guard under the door and move it into the appropriate corner.
Images 1 to 3 show the install sequence and image 4 what it looks like from outside the room.
The guard will need to be removed before the door can be opened.
Step 3: Alternative Solutions
- Train the cat.
- Give the cat you your children.
