1.On receipt shake the cage in order
2.Fasten the outer sides with the straps provided
3.Fasten the inner sides with the straps provided Whilst doing this make sure the springdoors are facing you and continue to move freely.
4.When the structure is solid ,place the 23" piece of wood in the centre cage as a perch for the decoy bird-put the plastic cover on top to protect this bird from inclement weather and provide sufficient food and drink. Leave the front unfastened until it accommodates a decoy.
5.Put two 6" wood pieces lenghwise together and position them diagonally between the inner site of the outer panel and approx the middle of the (opened) springdoor at about 4" height. This should provide an opened springdoor of approx 8".
6.Do the same on the other side and provide bait in both cages. When a bird lands on the pieces of wood perches- they will separate and snap the cagedoor tight.
7.Put the decoy in the centre cage and reset the trap(s). You may find it useful to mark the 6" pieces of wood where they meet to ensure that you can subsequently keep them straight.Otherwise it may become somewhat difficult to keep them straight after frequent use
