Mechanical deer deterrent failure

 diy mechanical deer deterent upgrade

Yes.....a couple of the mechanical deer deterrents failed recently due to some simple hang ups. It took me a few attempts before I came up with what I call the supporting arm structure for the clanging surface.

The support provides more adjustment choices when fine tuning the swing and helps to secure this deer deterrent contraption even during heavy winds.

Is a failure like this frustrating? Heck yeah it is, but the feeling of knowing we are one step closer to a better solution helps to ease the pain.
