An amazingly effective accessory that makes raising and lowering your windmill so much easier. These hinges attach to two of the three tower legs allowing the tower to stay anchored and pivot on the hinges during raising and lowering of the tower. Also makes it easier to lower it in the future for maintenance or as a preventative action if a severe storm is passing through. Note that if the ground rods or foundation has already been set adding the pivot hinges will move the location of two of the grounding rods..
