Yard Mounting (Do-it-Yourself): Select a post or pole desired, for mounting. Posts or stakes that are 1 ½“ to 2” in diameter are best. Pre-drill the post or pole to prevent splitting. (3/16” drill bit) Set the supplied 20d mounting nail in the center of the post being careful that the nail and post are exactly vertical to prevent the unit from dropping excessively in any direction. When mounted correctly on the vertical nail, the Whirligig will swivel (weathervane) freely into the breeze.

Ships unpainted silver color, but can be painted in any color desired. Proudly made in the USA! (Available at checkout) Note: Must ship separately. Freight cost included in price.
What are Whirligigs?
Whirligigs are whimsical, wind-driven expressions of American folk art that first appeared in this country nearly 200 years ago. Traditional designs depict common characters and activities of early American rural life, from farmers milking cows to lumbermen chopping wood. Old-timers called them “comic weathervanes”. The faster the wind blows, the more furiously the figures move. In some parts of the country, whirligigs are known as buzzers, gee-haws, spinners, pinwheels, whirlybirds, or whirlyjigs. Some swear the resulting vibration also drives away moles. Whatever their practical use, the pure pleasure of watching these brightly painted wind toys explains their timeless popularity.
