How to Secure a Rope Pulley System on a Bird Feeder
Many people enjoy bird watching. A simple way to invite more birds to your yard is to hang a bird feeder. The bird feeder's location and safety for the birds play an important role in how many birds come. One important location factor is the bird feeder's height. A bird feeder should be at least 4 feet above the ground. This can make filling the bird feeder a challenge. Attaching a pulley system to the bird feeder allows you to quickly lower and raise the bird feeder.
Drill a 1/8-inch pilot hole through the center of the bird feeder's top if it does not have a metal hook.
Screw a small eye bolt into the pilot hole and hook the rope pulley system's clamp onto the eye bolt. If the bird feeder has a metal hook, attach the clamp to this instead.
Set a ladder underneath the area you are hanging the bird feeder. Place an "S" hook over the tree branch.
Hook the rope pulley system's second clamp onto the "S" hook. Follow the manufacturer's directions on how to operate the pulley system.
