Just wondering what methods everyone is using to keep seagulls off their hoists?

Three of these http://gullsweep.myshopify.com/ spaced down the centre of the canopy.  I added some thin steel plates to the frame at the mount points and attached the sweeps to some good sized rare earth magnets.  The magnet holds against the steel plate with the canopy covering sandwiched in between.  Works perfectly to keep the gulls off the canopy.  I will admit about once a year the wind picks up enough that I need to go look for the sweeps in the lake but they never land far from the hoist.

Monofilament fishing line crisscrossed above whatever you want to protect. After a few of them hit it they avoid.
