How To Make a Satellite E-Collar

How To Make a Satellite E-Collar


All images can be clicked for larger view.

Step 1: Use a CD as a pattern.
Step 2: Trace a circle onto the plastic.
Step 3: Cut out circle.
Step 4: Using a dollar coin, or similiar sized object, draw a circle in the center.
Step 5: Cut out the center circle plus about 1/5 of the outer part creating a "C" shape. Cut the points so they are rounded.
Step 6: Using Dr. Scholls MOLEFOAM (the thick stuff) cut a strip the length of the pad and about 3/8" wide
Step 7: Make relief cuts along one side of the strip about half way through. Peel off the backing and place on one side of the neck hole.
Step 8: Cut the MOLESKIN about 1 1/2" wide and the length of the pad.
Step 9: Make relief cuts along both sides of the moleskin about 1/3 of the way in.
Step 10: Remove paper backing from one side of the moleskin.
Step 11: On the same side as the molefoam, put the moleskin OVER the molefoam. It should overlap the molefoam and stick to the plastic.
Step 12: Turn to the other side. Remove the paper and fold over the edge and stick in place.
  • This is how it will look with both the molefoam and the moleskin on one side.
  • View of the INSIDE of the e-collar. This is the side that will go against the glider's neck. (The thick molefoam works as padding.)
  • View of the OUTSIDE of the e-collar.
Step 13: Use electrical tape to secure the collar around the glider's neck. Electrical tape seems to work the best as it is slick and the glider's nails don't snag in it.
Step 14: Once the collar is in place, use a second piece of tape going from the inside over to the outside to secure it. This helps keep the collar on and makes it difficult for the glider to twist it off.
This is what the collar should look like once it is secured on the sugar glider.
