Please note, that each SCHWEGLER standard nestbox is already delivered with hanger and nail.
The patented SCHWEGLER nestbox hangers are available for replacement even after decades.
Description of mounting: The special SCHWEGLER Aluminium Nail should be hammered halfway into the tree, inclined slightly upwards at an angle of approx. 45°. Tilt the nest box slightly and hook the eye of the hanger over the head of the nail as if you were doing up a button. The box can then be rested against the tree, as shown in Fig. 1 + 2.
The advantages of this type of mounting are:
- The box can be checked from the ground or using the SCHWEGLER Lightweight Metal Ladder and Nest Boxes can be easily installed or removed.
- Because SCHWEGLER Aluminium Nails have a smooth shaft, they can be easily removed from the tree trunk using pliers, even after many years. Unlike with grooved nails, only a small scar is left on the trunk.
- The nesting box cannot be accidentally knocked off (eg. by a pole) because, unless the box is twisted to one side, the hanger cannot be pulled or knocked over the head of the nail. The loop of the hanger has a smaller diameter than the head of the nail.
