Wind spinners that are made of heavy duty 400 series 18-gauge stainless steel are the best on the market.  Wind spinners that are made of stainless steel last better in the outdoor weather than just steel wind spinners because they are guaranteed not to rust.  That’s why it is important when looking for a wind spinner to check and see if it’s made of stainless steel. These wind spinners typically come with a swivel hook for you to hang with.  Wind spinners can come in many different forms, themes, colors, shapes, and sizes.  There is always one for everybody! 

How would you use wind spinners?  They can be placed almost anywhere because of the different sizes they come in.  Some wind spinners come as small as 3-4” round.  These types of wind spinners can be hung on your car mirror, anywhere in the house, your office and even as a tree ornament.  These wind spinners make the perfect little gifts for people.  Another size of wind spinners made available are 8” and are perfect for on the deck, porch or in a window.  And the most popular size is the 12” wind spinners.  These are the perfect size for outdoor use in a tree branch, hook stand or hanging from a gazebo or arbor.  Be creative with you selection of wind spinners and where to put them.  They add a lot of color and look good anywhere you put them.

When choosing a wind spinner made of steel make sure to check that it’s made of stainless steel.  Also keep in mind where you want to put your wind spinner in case you may need to buy a hook stand or hanging wire.  Most wind spinners come with a heavy duty swivel hook for easy turning.  Follow the instructions on how to fan your wind spinner out for easier turning from the wind.  Hope this information helps you better understand what these kinds of wind spinners are and how to choose one and where to put it.
