Default How to stop all animals from stealing corn from your feeder

How do you stop Raccoons, Squirrels, birds and more from stealing corn from your spinner plate. The answer is simple, The Guardian from Sniper Hog Lights. The Guardian mounts to your existing Standard 12V Motor Box and will shock any animal that attempts to reach the Spinner plate. The cost is $110.99 but from 4-28-2021 to 5-4-2021, we are offering TBH members 25% off. Just use the coupon code "TBH25" when ordering on our website or you can call us and order with the coupon code. Phone # is listed at the top of every page of our website.
Here is a link to our website and the Guardian.
We offer free shipping on any order over $99.00 so if you order 2 or more you will also get free shipping.

Here is a video from a customer that shows the Guardian shocking a bird and Squirrel. The Bird gets hit hard.

Emphasis on "only tried", correct?....




I'm a big believer in using dogproofs but they **** sure don't catch them all. I'm at 415 coons since 5/2015 and they still keep making them and coming.. This Sniper deal seems like it will solve the "All of them" problem in addition to the dogproof removing them what it can.

I think this is a great product that could be used in conjunction with the Dukes traps. This zapper will keep em from getting into the feeder and the Dukes used to catch/kill em. Just using the zapper wont keep the coons from eating turkey/quail eggs or eating baby turkeys. Use em both.....

I was looking at some Moultrie timers a while back at Academy and noticed they had these (very similar) on their higher end timers now. Pretty neat idea.

I don't know if it was because I was standing on wet ground, drunk or a malfunction...but that one fried me good. Left a good burn mark on my hand.

Or use a neon light transformer and they will fall to the ground and stay there.
I know a few airport terminal buildings that have eliminated pigeons this way. If you are ever on the terminal roof do not touch that wire laying on top of the parapet walls. 15,000va@ 30ma will cause an immediate defecation in the draws and induce an epileptic seizure.

The Guardian will not shock you that bad but it is enough of a shock that you wont want to do it again. I've been shocked by our about 6 times, a couple of those times because I had know during testing and the others by mistake during testing. All of us here have been shocked by ours.

Similar is the key word as they are not the same. They only had two wires and the rest was all plastic and electricity doesn't flow through plastic. The animals had to touch both wires at the same time to get shocked so if they didn't reach between both wires they would not get shocked. This means they could reach under the bottom wire or over the top wire and not get shocked and that is how you would end getting mud on it. Not to mention that it would drain your battery pretty quick. On top of all that it was for 6V feeders only and you had to buy the whole motor box with it.

As you can see on ours, we have a bottom aluminum plate and a top aluminum plate and then two stainless steel rings in the middle. If an animal tries to go under the bottom ring it gets shocked, if it tries to go between them it gets shocked, if it tries to go over the top ring it gets shocked. If the animal can somehow hover in the air(Like a bird) and then tries to go between the two steel rings it will get shocked as soon as it touches the Spinner Plate. There literally is no way they can get to the spinner plate without getting shocked and almost all animals will get shocked way before they get close to the spinner plate. We have several out on feeder that are mainly for pigs and our motor boxes and solar panels used to get cover in mud but since they have had the Guardian on them that is no longer an issue.

Today is the last day of the 25% off sale.

For everyone that has bought them, please read the instructions before you take it out to your place to install as it will make it much easier to install them. Also in the instructions is a link to the video above on how to install it. If you have any issues after reading the instructions and watching the video, please call us and we will be more than happy to help you out. It really is pretty simple to install as you can see in the video it only took me about 8 minutes to install it from start to finish.

One thing to note. Some spinner plates can get corroded to the motor shaft and be difficult to take off so be prepared for this if your spinner plate hasn't been taken off in a long time.

If they made it stronger I could see some issues with game wardens coming across feeders with piles of dead songbirds underneath them and issuing some pretty hefty tickets.

Ive wondered about that wire when riding the tram at ATL. Yes! Sounds like the makings of Jackass 3 or 4 or 5.

Good lookin product Mr68. I didnt know there was such a thing as a 12v feeder. Good luck with the sales.

I'm not sure if your serious are not about not knowing about 12V feeders but I would guess there are more 12V feeders than 6V feeders. When I say 12V or 6V that is the voltage of the battery that runs motor that throws the corn.
