The CH4 HayHutNet kit is designed to cover a 4′ round bale in a square Hayhut (made in Canada).
Our smooth, soft, knotless hay hut nets are woven from the finest polyester fiber and are extremely gentle on horse’s lips, gums and teeth while being dirt resistant and very durable which is further enhanced by being suspended and at the same time this prevents the net from getting out from underneath the feeder, and getting frozen into mud or water in northern region winters.
KIT CONTENTS (all sizes are METRIC M6) – 21 curled 1 inch eyebolts, 21 locknuts, 21 lock washers, 21 nuts, 42 flat washers. 1 HayHutNet including center suspension cord and perimeter drawcord.
- Tip your HayHut on to its back for ease of drilling and fitting of eyebolts
- Using a ¼” drill bit fit one eyebolt in the center of the HayHut roof close to lifting loop (photo 6).
- Now drill 4 holes in the bottom curvature of the upper horizontal rib on each side at the tip of the arrows as shown in photo 1.
- With a 10mm wrench or similar, fit 4 eyebolts in each side adjusting and tightening the inside nut to ensure that the eyebolt does not protrude beyond the locknut (photo 2). (the HayHut can be rolled left and right to enable easy drilling and fitting (photo 3). The order on the eyebolt from inside to out is- nut/lock washer/flat washer/hut plastic/flat washer/lock nut.
- Push the HayHut upright to step inside to hang the net from the roof eyebolt by the center cord.
- Align the 4 vertical net joining tapes in the corners and clip in the adjacent eyebolts. (photo 4 )
- Finish clipping in the remaining eyebolts and draw the perimeter cord very tightly and tie off very securely. The first knot is easiest to tighten, and the second knot is most secure.
- To load the HayHut and net, pull the center net cord through the eyebolt to elevate the net and put the end loop on one of the top joining flange bolts (photo 6) before tipping the HayHut over or lifting it mechanically.
- Put the HayHut back over the fresh bale of hay ensuring that the net is not getting snagged.
- Release the top cord back to the roof eyebolt when the HayHut and net are atop the hay.
- Check your net regularly to ensure that it stays in perfect working condition. Any broken mesh must immediately be pulled together and repaired – Zip ties work well.
- The HayHutNet can be machine washed warm/cold and spun on any cycle but do not tumble dry.
