I found that you can cut the magnetic tape down the center and it will still work.
This means you get double the coverage for the same price.

The mag strip drives my Neato crazy. We have a large plush area rug that the Neato makes a mess of when it vacuums it... leaves grooves in the carpet from the wheels. Simple solution... right? Just surround it with two roles of the magnetic tape.

The XV-11 seems to know there is an area beyond the tape that it needs to get to. It bumps the mag tape, and proceeds to go around the taped off rug. Then is goes around it again, and again, and again. After a while it seems to get more and more persistent in it's attempts to get across the mag tape barrier, until it finally succeeds.

Of course once inside the taped area, it can't get out.

The magnetic tape is not a solution for keeping the vac off area rugs.

These work well to keep the Neato robot from crossing into areas it shouldn't.

I do not have to lay them flat, even though Neato recommends laying them flat. If they are standing upright they usually work fine. My robot will usually "respect" the boundary marker and not cross it.

If your robot is not respecting the boundary marker, try laying it flat and moving it a few inches away from the object you want it to stay away from. The marker should not be directly next to the object.

Note: Occasionally my robot will push against the boundary marker and try to cross it or move the boundary marker. If this happens, laying it flat usually solves the problem. They are meant to be used flat and not upright as they are shown in the photo. For the most part, I use them upright and a few inches away from the object. My robot may push it around a bit but not cross it. In the rare cases it tries to cross it, I will lay it flat and that stops it.

This is one 15-foot strip boundary marker and can be cut to fit. The ones that come in the box with your Neato XV-11 or XV-21 are usually 6-feet-8-inches long.

The 15-foot ones also are fairly heavy, and will stay put, unless your Neato gets a little enthusiastic and pushes them out of position. In that case, you can tape the ends of the boundary marker to each other if the boundary marker is wrapped around an object such as a piece of furniture, or to the floor or carpet with masking tape if you are marking off an area such as curtains.

I recommend these if your Neato is going into an area you would like it to avoid, such as curtains, or an area with extension cords.

Neato comes with a small roll of the magnetic strip, but that wasn't nearly enough for my usage. I need to block off the front of my couch because Neato tries to go under this and gets stuck. This additional roll was just right for my needs.

Not much to say about it. The stock length/amount with the Botvac 85 isn't quite sufficient for most people, I would imagine. It wasn't for me. One can use other methods to prevent the vacuum from going into areas you don't want (stack books, shoes, or other obstructions), but after doing that for a while, just decided to buy more of the strip. Makes it easier. But they really ought to include a bit more with the vacuum.

The Good: I used this extra boundary marker to assist in creating a circle barrier around a circular rug which was under my kitchen table. For some reason, my neato cannot negotiate the legs of my chairs and table. After many failed attempts to help it out, I just decided to create a circular boundary under the rug by cutting two strips into 12 inch sections and taping them under the rug. It works great and my neato goes around the whole thing. Now it can clean my entire one story house without fail.

The Bad: They are expensive I think. In reality, the are nothing more than a strip of magnets. I wish they were a little cheaper, but I can understand neato probably makes a lot of money by selling these.

I'm disappointed with this strip. The Neato vac either goes over the strip or simply pushes it out of the way. It worked for awhile but now it isn't. Im not sure why it stopped working. Perhaps it is the vac that has the problem. Regardless, it is not working to stop the vac from going under some furniture.

We've had our Neato about three weeks now and absolutely love it. The boundary markers (we have the short one that came with the unit and two 13' strips I recently bought for less than $50 (total), and they work as advertised as well. It doesn't matter if I lay the strips flat (in front of an open door, for example) or on edge (to curve around a Christmas three skirt), Neato "sees and obeys." A five star performance as far as I am concerned.
