Installation notes

Choose a location for the GarglerTM beneath the eaves of your home, garage, potting shed, or on a deck structure, garden arbor, even inside your home for display.

Installation is qiuck and easy, requiring only a wide headed nail (roofing nail), a screw, or a bolt. Once a suitable location has been determined, anchor the nail, screw, or bolt in the wall leaving  just enough space between the anchor head and the wall to fit the thickness of the back surface of the Gargler.TM

Select a perching  twig (this is not required for the birds) and insert it into the the holding tabs provided under the chin of the Gargler.TM  Position the creature over the nail or screw at the point of the  "cutout" on the back of the Bird Gargler.TM

Note: If you choose to install the Bird GarglerTM on a tree you must check the Bird GarglerTM regularly. The tree grows out rather than up and will exert pressure between the bark of the tree and the Bird GarglerTM as the tree grows. This pressure will cause the Bird GarglerTM to break at the back. The insertion of a rubber washer as a cushion between the tree and the Bird GarglerTM will help to reduce the pressure for a short time. Even with the washer cushion the Bird GarglerTM should be checked periodically.

A better solution for a tree installation is to first anchor a flat board to the tree and then mount the Bird GarglerTM on the board following the standard installation instructions.

Instructions are included with each Bird GarglerTM.

The Bird GarglerTM is now ready for occupancy
