Perfect 4 Unit Gourd Rack for Purple Martins
Materials: Aluminum pole, aluminum ground stake, aluminum hub brackets, assembled to aluminum angle sides using stainless steel hardware. Four high-strength 3/8" aluminum gourd arms.
Dimensions: 12.5-foot round high-tensile strength two-piece aluminum pole and stands 14-feet above the ground when installed.
Gourd Arms: Four 3/8" solid aluminum horizontal arms. Arms for "Deluxe" and "K-Series" style gourd racks have a 90-degree bend on the end that slips into the hub bracket. There are three configurations; straight that slip into the single hole on the hub bracket, and left and right, which are paired in an adjacent side of the hub. The horizontal gourd arms have a drilled hole at the end of the arm. Slip your gourd onto the arm and insert your supplied hitch pin. The pin will keep your gourd from falling off.
Gourd Accommodation: Any plastic or natural gourd can be fitted to these horizontal-style gourd arms. If your gourds are not already drilled front to back in the upper neck, use a 13/32" drill bit to enlarge the hanging holes.
Single Pulley System: The pulley system supports the weight of the gourd rack to make lowering and raising the hub smooth and easy. Always wear a good pair of grip gloves when raising or lowering any gourd rack.
Extras: Extend the height of the pole by two-feet with the Extension Piece. This gourd rack is available as a combo kit.
Climbing Predator Protection: An optional pole guard that fits a round pole is available.
