Mounting Brackets

Mounting Brackets 1 Mounting Brackets 2

First, slip one hopper extension on the basic feeder. Then, slip one 4-40 fine thread screw through one washer and into the lower end of the extension which will be next to the bracket, and tighten securely. Next, install 4 ea. #6 x 3/8" long screws making sure the rubber feet protrude through the 2 holes in the bracket. Install the retaining strap (right) with the small 4-40 fine thread screw into the hopper extension. Do not use a washer under this screw. You can then attach the strap to the bracket and into a 2 x 4 using two of the 4 supplied #8 x 1/2" long screws. If you mount it to a pipe, you will need to use a couple of screws and nuts to tighten the strap to the bracket (not supplied). Additional straps may be purchased and attached to upper hopper extension to stabilize stacked extensions. Each feeder also has a small plastic loop clamp (not pictured) under the feeder and in the recessed area, which you can use to secure the power adapter cord, whether is is plugged into the jack or attached to the terminal strip. You should not use a jack plug outdoors because it may let water in the electronics compartment.
