Pole Kit for Barn Owl Box


Now Offering Free Shipping!

This is the simplest, easiest pole design for erecting a barn owl box. Made of galvanized iron pipe, it consists of a four-foot long 1.25” diameter base pipe, two four-foot 1” diameter pipes, a 1” coupling, pipe glue, and a 1 ” floor flange for attaching the nest box. In areas with adequate soil or clay, it requires no hole digging, cement, or trips to the store. All pipe is pre-cut and threaded. Can be installed in fifteen minutes by a single worker. Box will stand eight feet off the ground, an optimum height for barn owls.

The Barn Owl Box Pole Kit

This pole kit was designed to make installing barn owl nest boxes as inexpensive, quick, and easy as possible. We have settled on a cost efficient, low labor method of installing our nest boxes on galvanized iron poles. The design we offer is competitive with what it would cost to go to a building supply store and have them cut the proper pieces to size. An advantage to such a design is that the nest boxes can be moved from one location to the next, and are very easy to install in the first place.

A Note On Nest Box Height: It is easy to hear that barn owl nest boxes must be installed at 12 to 16 feet or higher. This is simply not true. The higher the height, the more work, risk, and cost are involved while barn owls themselves will nest at even 4 feet off the ground. In field tests conducted on a vineyard near Sacramento, 25 nest boxes achieved 80% occupancy in a two year period utilizing this pole system.

Installing the Barn Owl Box Pole Kit

First, the four foot long 1.25 inch base pipe is driven approximately two feet into the ground using a pipe driver or a sledge hammer (use a piece of wood to protect the edges of the pipe).

The two four foot 1” diameter sections are connected with the coupler and dropped inside the base pipe. Usually it is a good idea to fasten the mounting bracket from the Barn Owl Box to the

The set screw is tightened to keep the pole from turning in the wind. Detailed instructions come with the kit.

Pole kit for barn owl box

Very easy to setup. My 10 year old and I had it up in a few minutes. It is very solid because we had 30 mph winds one week after we put it up and it did not move!
Highly recommend!

Pole kit review

The pole kit is of very good quality. Also very easy to assemble. I will buy another one when I get another barn owl box

For the visual people

I put the box up and all is good. One thing I think would help is a visual guide to assist with your instructions, think IKEA. For those of us who are not as handy, it would be a great help.

Great pole!!

This Owl box pole is very sturdy, easy to install, and although it hasn't been tested yet, i'm convinced it will be Hurricane proof!
I used it for my Screech Owl box, and it worked great!!
