Customer Questions & Answers

What anchors it down and the house on top

What is used to anchor it in place at the base? What is on top to anchor the birdhouse down?
Asked by: pops
The pole has a knob that comes out when inserted into the house & holds it snugly in place. When you buy the pole it comes with specific instructions on how deep a hole to dig etc. You can also buy a sleeve that you insert into the ground if you are planing to make it removable. We just dig the hole, align it , fill it with cement & make a frame to hold it in place till the cement dries. That way, it's permanent. You can still lower & raise it.

Would this pole support a bat house?

Asked by: robert
Yes. Because my 12 compartment Purple Martin House is much Larger & Probably heavier then a Bat House. You are talking about a single bat house right?? You'd have to figure out a way to install it on the Pole. The Purple Martin Houses have the triangular slot already built into them :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the S&K houses perfectly We've had our S & K Purple Martin Houses & Poles in Tx. for 20 years. They have withstood Freezing, High Winds, and this April Big Hail :-) Now moving to Missouri & must have them here :-) So bought 2-houses & 2-poles for our yard here in Mo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pole for Purple Martin house Just put pole up yesterday. Seems to work fine. I dug a hole and filled it with quickrete. I have yet to put the plastic shopping bags in the bottom pole as directed. Overall it seems like a good value and a steady product. For those buying this pole I recommend the plastic sleeve sold seperately. This goes into the concrete so that you can remove the entire pole when not in use. If you don't use the sleeve you will always have to leave the metal bottom section ( 3 metal sectios total) in the ground stuck in the concrete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from S&K pole to use with S&K Martin houses S&K changed the way the three pole sections fasten together. Instead of the plastic button clips used in previous models, the poles I received use a piece of hard wire with a loop on the end. This is NOT an improvement over the plastic pieces IMNSHO. I am not very confident in the strength of this fastener and intend to replace them with a bolt ASAP. S&K needs to get a new engineer and redesign this fastener again! That said, I prefer S&K Martin houses over the competitors and this pole is the only one that will mount to the houses without using an adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the triangle shape, rather than round (Less chance of birdhouse spinning) Had a broken plastic snap, but called company in Montana to get a replacement. VERY nice lady there sent me TWO, one for a spare. Product looks well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish they were a little taller. Great product but should have ordered the 15 foot poles. They seem a little short after you put two feet in the ground.
