Use and Care of Your Thermo-Perch
Please read all instructions and warranties before installing and operating your Thermo-Perch.
Your Thermo-Perch consists of:
- Retaining Flange
- Power Cord and AC Adapter
Remove all contents from the package. Plan on placing the Thermo-Perch in the upper third of the cage, adjacent to the highest perch, as most birds select the highest spot for sleep and safety.
Unscrew the retaining flange from the perch. Run the perch cord through the bars of the cage. Place the threaded end of the perch through the birdcage bars. While holding the perch in place, slide the retaining flange up the cord and screw the retaining flange onto the threads. Hand-tighten until the Thermo-Perch is firmly in place. Plug the AC Adapter into an outlet, and plug the adapter into the perch. It can take up to an hour for the unit to reach its consistent temperature.
It may take time for the bird to use the perch consistently, as some birds are wary of any new object in their cage. Be patient and leave the perch alone. It may even take a week or more for your bird to get used to having a new perch in its cage.
Exotic birds have a body temperature that ranges between 104-106 degrees Fahrenheit . The Thermo-Perch is thermostatically controlled to help them safely regulate their body temperature. Your bird will position itself on the perch based on the amount of warmth it desires. THE THERMO-PERCH IS NOT INTENDED TO BE THE ONLY PERCH IN THE CAGE. Your bird will choose when it needs the warmth, and there should always be at least one other non-heated perch to use.
The Thermo-Perch may be cleaned with a damp cloth or paper towel. DO NOT IMMERSE IN WATER. If disinfecting is required, lightly mist the Thermo-Perch with disinfecting solution and wipe dry. Take care not to mist the area where the cord enters the perch.
The perch is made of a chew-resistant plastic, and the cord is metal wrapped to prevent chewing. Please take care not to let the cord hang near or into the cage as a determined parrot may still cause come cord damage. The cord may also be of interest to the bird if it is let out of the cage to roam. K & H Manufacturing is not responsible for damaged cords.
The Thermo-Perch is a low-voltage heating unit using a UL Listed AC Adapter and cannot shock your bird. Used properly, the Thermo-Perch will provide years of comfort for your exotic birds.
