It can also help prevent birds from flying into the window because they perceive that something is there. Our WBU Suction Cup Window Hanger gives you the chance to bring your birds as close to you as possible. To apply the suction cups to a window, make sure the window is clean and dry. Apply a little facial oil to the suction cup and press them firmly against the window. It is important not to apply water to the suction cups because water can cause the suction cups to come off the window. The WBU Suction Cup Window Hanger holds up to 4 lbs. of weight.
