Adjusting the closing mechanism

The Closing Mechanism 

Use the feeder with the factory setting before making any adjustments. A small red squirrel, 115g will trigger the closing mechanism at this setting. 

To increase the adjustment setting, rotate the transparent cartridge clockwise. The red line will move down from the previous setting. This increases the weight required to close access to the seed. 

To decrease the adjustment setting, turn the cartridge counter clockwise. The red line will move up from the previous setting. This decreases the weight required to close access to the seed.
