Finally, a pole guard ingeniously designed to solve the site management problem of how to use a pole guard without it interfering with the lowering of the martin housing!
When placed too low, a guard is ineffective against predators. When placed above the rope cleat/brake winch a guard is often mounted too high to conduct nest checks without a ladder, and the top plate has to be modified to allow for the rope/cable.
The Quick Release Guard, with its pre-drilled vinyl-edged rope/cable hole, can be repeatedly fastened and released completely from the pole in seconds. Made of aluminum, this 11½ diameter, 24½ long guard features a unique piano hinge and latch system.
Fits 4" x 6" wooden poles and also wooden poles built to T14 Plan specifications.
