Wind sensor guards?

We are looking to install a wind sensor guard/cover to protect our little whirli-gig from being damaged by a low hanging limb. I have googled a lot but can't find any info as to where we can buy a protective device. Any ideas? Anybody installed such a whirli-gig protector? We need your help!

Thank You!

After mine was destroyed by storm I thought about a __/ \__ inverted U of aluminum fastened to the roof.

I did not have shop in tx but am looking at making one now that I am home

That is fine but it will not keep tree branches from ripping it off roof

Well, yes. That is what I meant. Second one is long gone. There won't be a third.

Please.....there has to be a company, some vendor that makes a protector item that keeps limbs from damaging or ripping the wind sensor from our roofs.

I am thinking of a cage SS sprinkler head cover used in commercial buildings fire suppression systems. It would still allow air through but protect the spinny thing. 😂
Not long ago I could figure it out in a week or two....now I don't have any contacts.
Like this?

Yea, I live in Indiana and the apparent tree trimming service for the county is motorhomes and trucks driving the streets.
I understand why they put the sensors on the passenger side but the drivers side would last much longer around where I live.

A sturdy cage would work well and is a great idea. Where do you even purchase the replacement sensors?
