Three replacement springs for the medium and small chicken feeder. Springs are a wear item and will eventually break although they last longer if the spring is adjusted to reduce excessive closing pressure. Use two pairs of pliers and gently stretch the spring until you have about three pounds force required to push the door open by pushing directly on the door or treadle.
The springs are mailed in an envelope via U.S. Mail and the shipping charge of $4.80 is included in the $7.80 sell price for three springs. Our cost per spring has remained at $1.00 per spring since 2012 but USPS increases their pricing at a steady rate.
The video shows how to install the spring. Always adjust the spring once it is installed by using two pairs of pliers to carefully stretch the spring till the resistance fits the average size of your birds. Too stiff and it closes hard and louder than needed. Stretch it too far and a really big rat can push the door open. We recommend taping extra springs up under the lid of the feeder so they don't get lost. If you have one of the late 2022 feeders with the row of holes across the top of the feeder there is no need to adjust the spring. Ditto on the new double spring/no counterweight feeder.
