Ravenox Pole Extension
Increase the height of any 2-inch square x 14-foot pole by an additional 2-feet with this simple add-on extension. It's a great idea to add this if you are going to upgrade a 12 unit gourd rack to an 18 unit gourd rack.
This extension piece is inserted at the top of the pole. You will need to take your existing pole down in order to add the extension. It is best to install this extension before your Purple Martins return. The overall height of the pole should not exceed 16 feet.
Be advised, all 16 FT poles need 55 Feet of rope. The standard 14 feet tall racks come with 45 feet of braided polyester rope. When adding this extension you will need an additional 10 feet of cord (55 FT total). Our replacement rope is sold separately.

Dimensions: The extension pole fits a 2-inch square pole and adds 2-feet of length to a 14-foot square pole. It is recommended that the maximum height for a pole be no more than 16-feet off the ground.
