"Very well made and the design concept is very clever."

By: Joseph Lint

English Setter. Hunts. Family pet.
Well worth the money as it solved any concern for unwanted critters entering the house.I added it to a Phantom Quail house I built and made it, in my opinion, predator proof. Very well made and the design concept is very clever.

Product Rating: 5 out of 5-stars.

Predator Proof Funnel Installed -- Open Predator Proof Funnel Installed -- Closed Predator Proof Funnel in Use

The Predator Proof Funnel by Quail Restoration Technologies is designed as an add-on to the Surrogator, allowing it to be used to train bird dogs. The PPF can also be installed in Johnny Houses, Flight Pens, or any box of your choice to allow quail to re-enter but keep anything weighing over 1 lb. out.

Predator Proof funnel Installation Instructions

Surrogator not included.

Please read all steps before starting.


Tools Needed for Installation
  • 1/4" nut driver or socket and ratchet
  • Tape measure
  • White marking pen
  • Heavy duty tin snips (Preferably lefts and rights red and green)
  • Two 7/16" wrenches or socket and ratchet
  • Flat surface
  • Leather gloves


This job should take about 30 minutes to an hour

NOTE: Edges of metal are very sharp and a pair of leather gloves should be worn when performing this task.


1. Start by removing the screws from around the expanded metal on the left side of the loafing area of the Surrogator. If birds are present, you must pen them in the brooder-end with the divider for this process. You will be removing the side panel, and they will escape if you don't.




2. Lay expanded metal on a flat surface and cut out with tin snips. Be very careful not to cut any more than the required for the opening. This panel is part of the support for both the funnel and the side of the Surrogator.

To provide ample opening to insert the funnel, cut 13 inches from each end, 3-1/2" from the top, and 1-1/2" from the bottom.



3. With the opening now cut in the panel, insert the funnel with the 3-1/2" part of the panel at the top.




4. Insert the (8) 1/4X20 Bolts (provided) through the funnel and through the expanded metal. Make sure the bolts are facing in and the heads of the bolts are out. Next, place the washers on the bolt on the expanded metal side. This will ensure the bolts dont pull through and will hold the funnel to the expanded metal. Make sure there is no gap anywhere around the funnel because that will allow small predators in the unit. (It may be necessary to remove some of the expanded metal to allow for bolt alignment.) Remove only what is required for bolt clearance. Finally, using the 7/16" tools tighten all 8 bolts and nuts.



5. With the funnel installed in the expanded metal, you can now replace the whole assembly back on the Surrogator. Make sure to replace all the screws you previously removed.



6. With the funnel and expanded metal back in place, you should install and check the function of the door. Make sure you can remove and replace it with minimal restriction. Also, you should have about 1-1/2" clearance from the bottom of the funnel and the floor. The funnel should work freely returning to the upright position on its own.

Country of Origin: Made in USA.
