Installation instructions

The installation of your giroiseau is very quick and easy.

Installation in garden/terrace

For logistical reasons, we can not offer posts for fixing the bird longer than 60cms (final height of the bird from ground about 40cm). If you want to place your giroiseaux at greater heights, the simplest solution is to buy a wooden pole of a minimum diameter of 3 cm in a DIY store (examples: Pole Hornbach ou Brico et Loisirs Post). For a more permanent solution or if you want to mount the giroiseau at greater heights than 1.5m or on concrete (in any case a giroiseau must not be installed at more than 2.5 metres of height), it is advisable to use a support (example: Socket ou Socket 2 ). depending on the terrain and the height of the post, it may be necessary to anchor the post in concrete. On this page  this page you will find good advice for anchoring the post, and if in doubt, do not hesitate to ask the hardware store. The mounting procedure is as follows:

  1. In the center of the post, drill a 8mm diameter hole, 5cm deep.
  2. Put the post into the ground with a club (1/4 to 1/3 of the height of the post), or other methods.
  3. Insert the aluminum tube 8mm diameter (supplied with the giroiseau) in the hole in the post .
  4. Insert the giroiseau in the tube.

And now your giroiseau is ready to fly!
