Weathervanes are made of 14 gauge steel and come with a one year warranty on the finish and a lifetime warranty on all workmanship. A 3 step finishing process is used – First the units are zinc plated for better adhesion and durability. Then an antique copper vein powder coat is baked on and followed by a clear powder coat to protect against the UV rays. This provides a durable, scratch resistant finish. Sealed ball bearings are used in the wind cups to keep them spinning freely with even the slightest breeze. The design tops are laser cut in one piece, minimizing welding and making them a unique addition to your home. The tops are interchangeable and easy to change.
- If optional 5/16″ x 3 ft. rod is included, drive the silver rod half way into the ground. Place the 60″ garden mount over top of the rod. If the silver rod is not included simply push the 60″ garden mount into the ground to desired height. (minimum of 12″ into the ground)
- Place the directional over the pole (approx. 6″ from the tip). Point the N to the north and tighten the screw that is located between the N and E.

- Place the design top onto the pole.
When installing on a roof, deck, post or cupola mount, install your mount to the mounting surface. Place the short rod into the tubing of the mount. Tighten the set screw provided on the mount. Slide the directional (NSEW) over the tip of the rod. Set N to North and tighten the set screw. Place the wind cups over the tip of the rod ( bearing side facing DOWN). Then slide the top on your weather vane.
The manufacturer recommends that you place a few drops of light oil on the top of the pole periodically to ensure that the design top will turn freely.
If using a roof style mount, the manufacturer recommends that you ground your weather vane in case of a lightning strike. Please consult your township for local building codes.
