Four feed door tube caps are used for each feed door to eliminate any sharp edges. Feed doors add great functionality to any horse stall front. They eliminate having to enter the horse’s stall during feeding time throughout the day. They can save you or your farmhands a great deal of time, especially when you have multiple horses that may require different feed amounts and supplements.
Installation: Insert the feed door tube caps into the ends of the feed door. Next, insert the top of the hinge bar completely up into the hole of the top grill channel, then set the bottom of the hinge bar into the hole of the bottom grill channel. Lastly, pull down the latch bar and swing it into place - latching it into the latch hole. For Essex installations, decide where the feed door is going to be located in the grillwork and omit 7 of the 3/4" horse stall grill bars - leaving at least one bar from the end.
