Hardware Kits ~ Metal, Pex or Conduit
Hardware Kits - simplify daily feeding by converting our Mini, Half or Square EcoNet into a handy Stall or Fence feeder. Once attached you just toss the hay into the net & are done...no more tying, hanging, or undoing nets to take to the hay pile & returning to feed !! We have both Metal Frame kits - with hinges for box stall feeding and Pex Frame kits - for mounting nets on fences/pens. Note - net is Not included.
SQUARE METAL FRAME KIT: For mounting in box stalls, run-ins or loafing sheds. This kit is metal, can be used against a solid flat wall with hinges to open sideways for filling with hay, mounted in top corner of stall to just toss hay up & into or mounted similar to Pex kit on fence or stall front. Frame is approx. 20" x 20" & weighs 3 lbs. We do not have a closure/lock at this time but Elastic Ball Ties work well and a hook clip is included to use for hooking closed.
Also "Corner Metal Frame" for box stalls or loafing sheds !!
*** Fits our Mini, Half or Square nets.
*** Note: Our HD Trailer Nets will Not fit.
*** Note: Nets from other manufacturer's may not fit as our frame is too big !!
PEX FRAME KIT: For mounting on fences or panels. Includes pex pipe, pressure fit connector, 4 clamp's with screws and nails to attach to board or rail fence, cable ties for panel/metal fencing and detailed instructions. Net sold separately. To install : start by weaving the open folded edge of net onto Pex, then push the Pex ends into the connector (cut down size for Mini or Tr Net), evenly spread net on frame & mount on inside (horse side) of fence/pen. Frame is 2ft in Diameter
*** if shod horses - hang so bottom of net is chest height or higher.
*** Works best with Mini or Half nets, Square size nets hold to much and may be to heavy for frame if filled.
TIP: If SHOD horses have access to the net, be sure to hang so bottom of net is at chest height or higher. This way they shouldn't be able to paw & get hung up or caught. Use caution with all SHOD horses & nets of any kind.
CONDUIT KIT for EZ Feeders: Available in Medium or Large. This kit is for weaving net onto the conduit to attach to your round bale feeder. Included is the conduit (grey 1/2 inch), connector, clamps and cable ties. Insert connector into 1 end of conduit and tighten clamp over the top to secure. Weave every other hole of the folded edge net onto the opposite end (so you have a double layered net wove on the conduit), spread net out around the conduit and set inside your feeder. Position in place where you will attach to feeder & start to fasten in place (not to tight in case you need to adjust) along inside of feeder. You will need to cut off any excess conduit when you get the back to where you started, slip clamp over end & connect the 2 ends, tightening clamp to secure!
Do any re-adjusting of net before tightening zip ties & make sure you have used enough so that the conduit is attached approx. every 1 ft or so along inside of feeder if possible.
