Easy to install.I wish it was 1/2 to one inch larger to cover 10-1/2 inch seed tray.
the rain guard is installed under the metal bar that supports the lid. This seems to obstruct the top feeding perches; haven’t seen a bird yet attempt to feed from the top two holes. I have the rain guard as high as it can go.
Hi Sherry, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Seattle Rain Guard. We are glad to see you are choosing to help protect your birds and their birdseed from the elements! Yes, the rain guard is meant to be installed below the metal bar that holds the hangar. Birds are agile and if they want to access the upper perches, they definitely will! As long as they are able to reach seed they will be happy! If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164. Thank you for flying with our flock!
