Q. How do you install finch feeder bags?
A. How do you install finch feeder bags? (doc)
A.

 

WHEN YOU PURCHASED YOUR SENIOR MOMENTS FINCH FEEDER, WE ALSO INCLUDED AN EXTRA AND (FREE) BAG.

 

THESE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR REMOVING THE OLD “THISTLE SEED” BAG, WHEN REQUIRED, AND INSTALLING THE NEW ONE.

 

REMEMBER, THE BODY OF THE FINCH FEEDER IS CONSTRUCTED WITH PVC PIPE WHICH IS HAND PAINTED. BE NICE TO THE PAINTED SURFACE.

 

SO, THE OLD FINCH FEEDER BAG IS NOW RIPPED AND USELESS? DON’T FRET. REMEMBER THE FREE BAG SENIOR MOMENTS GAVE TO YOU? NOW IS THE TIME TO USE IT.

 

NOTE: THERE IS A ROUNDED GROVE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FINCH FEEDER BODY. THE BAG IS ATTACHED IN THAT GROOVE WITH A PLASTIC "ZIP" TIE.

 

STEP 1 – REMOVE THE TORN BAG BY CUTTING THE “ZIP TIE” AND PULLING THE BAG OFF.

 

STEP 2 – PLACE THE NEW BAG WITH THE (ZIP TIE) IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GROOVE AND CAREFULLY TIGHTENING THE ZIP  TIE (PULLING WITH BOTH OF YOUR THUMBS) SO THE BAG CANNOT BE REMOVED.

 

STEP 3 – GENTLY PULL THE NEW BAG DOWN (IN THE AREA OF THE ZIP TIE) UNTIL YOU CAN SEE THE TOP OF THAT GROOVE ALL THE WAY AROUND. THAT MEANS THE BAG IS INSTALLED CORRECTLY.

 

STEP 4 – USING A PLIARS AND ONE THUMB, PULL HARD ON THE ZIP TIE SO THAT THE BAG IS SECURED.

 

STEP 5 – CUT OFF THE “TAG END” OF THE ZIP TIE WITH A WIRE CUTTERS SO THE BAG IS SECURELY CONNECTED AND THE ZIP TIE IS NO LONGER SHOWING. THAT’S IT.

 

NOTE: PLEASE CLEAN THE FINCH FEEDER BAG OFTEN. IT WILL LAST A LONG TIME. ONE LADY IS STILL USING HER FIRST BAG (YEAR AROUND) AND HASN’T HAD THE NEED TO REPLACE IT SINCE SHE PURCHASED THE FEEDER FOUR YEARS AGO.  SHE SAID THAT HER TWO FINCH FEEDER BAGS WILL PROBABLY LAST TEN YEARS. THE KEY, “THE MORE YOU WASH THE BAG, THE LONGER IT WILL LAST.
