How do I install a pole for my BatBnB?
Once you’ve found a suitable location, first dig a hole 3 feet to 4 feet deep with a shovel, post-hole digger, or an auger.
Attach your BatBnB to the pole, before erecting the pole. You can find mounting guidelines for your BatBnB in the included booklet or www.batbnb.com/hanging-guide.
We like to put a few inches of gravel in the hole to drain water away from the pole and help prolong the life of the pole.
Raise the pole while inserting into the hole (this may require the help of a friend).
Use a level to make sure the pole is straight.
Fill around the pole using cement, gravel, dirt, or a combination of them (you can find many guides for setting poles with the materials you’d prefer to use by simply searching online).
We recommend adding small amounts of fill at a time and periodically checking the levelness of the pole as you go.
