Filling Your Feeder

The special TopLoc™ feature conveniently holds the lid open for easy filling or cleaning. Before you close the feeder, you must first "unlock" the lid by lifting the lid upward. NOTE: Lid hinges may be damaged if undue force is applied while lid is "locked" in OPEN position.
Swing the lid closed, making sure the latch is secured.
Adjusting Your Feeder
Absolute™ feeders are designed to keep out unwanted birds or animals. The Thumb Screws on both sides of the feeder should be loosened, the counter weight pulled out to the setting you desire, and the screws tightened firmly. The numbered settings on the bar represent ounces. A setting of "2" (ounces) is recommended for general purpose feeding. Refer to the table below to ensure the birds you wish to feed are covered in your bird weight setting.
1/2 - 1 oz.
The Pole Bracket adapter fits the pole kit included with this feeder. To mount feeder to a wooden post, attach Reinforcing Bracket directly to post with screws (not included).
Whether the species of birds you desire are native to your area, or migrating through, you can increase your chances of attracting them for a short or extended stay by providing the right feed, in the right feeder, installed in the right place.
