» STANDARD HANGERS FOR BIRD BOXES D.B.P.
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.
The patented SCHWEGLER nestbox hangers are available for following nesting boxes and can be
ordered separately, e.g. for replacement. Replacement hangers are supplied without nail and nest box.
Please remember that trees can grow at different rates. Do not hammer the nails too far into the trunk. When
suspending boxes with a built in block (see Nuthatch, Owl and Bat Boxes) sufficient space should also be left
between the head of the nail and the block.

» STANDARD HANGERS FOR BAT BOXES
For installation and removal the loop and nail principle applies - please see above. The special shape of the hanger
means that only one Aluminium Nail is required to hold the box in a stable position on the tree trunk, as preferred by
Bats. To ensure firm contact between the back of the box and the tree trunk, the sides of the hanger can be pressed
together to match the radius of the trunk.
Please note the additional information about installing Bat Boxes on pages 21.
The patented SCHWEGLER hangers for Standard Bat Boxes (for use in gardens/woodlands) can be obtained individually,
e.g. for replacements. Please note that each SCHWEGLER Standard Bat Box is supplied with hanger and nail(s).
