Metal replacement seed tubes are not available, but Customer Service graciously offered to send a new feeder (arrived in 2 days). I will attempt to modify the seed ports by securing metal washers. Results to follow.Date published: 2016-06-30Rated 5 out of 5 by RonB from great features I bought this a month ago and so happy that I did. No more squirrels! yaaayy!!Date published: 2016-06-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack 81 from So far it has stopped the squirrels. The baffle is a necessary part of the feeder and it is suppended at a distance from the feeder that the squirrles can not reach the top of the feeder. A very good deturent. Thanks Jack Miller.Date published: 2016-06-20Rated 2 out of 5 by GrannyC from Good until the squirrels pulled out the springs This worked well for about a week and then the squirrels got to the springs, which are not actually hidden that well, and eventually pulled all of them out, stretching them so bad that there was no way I could get them back in and working again. Too bad there isn't a way that the manufacturer could put those springs behind metal or maybe inside a metal rod to keep the squirrels out.Date published: 2016-06-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack 81 from super. Good work. It is doing a great job. Has the squirrels baffled.Date published: 2016-06-08Rated 5 out of 5 by War Eagle Karen from Best Squirrel-proof Feeder EVER!! My daughter bought me one for Mother's Day and now all our luxury bird food is going to the birds and not the squirrels. I wish they made one with a round tray so our Cardinals could eat from it. Cardinals do not perch and eat on this type of feeder.Date published: 2016-06-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Kandy218 from Beautiful feeder and the birds love it too! We purchased this feeder because it held more than the feeders we have been using. We thought we could fill it less often. We are thrilled to be filling just as often because we are getting more birds. The birds LOVE hanging onto the wire on the sides. All 9 stations have birds at them almost all the time. The finish is gorgeous.Date published: 2016-05-31Rated 5 out of 5 by Trish from Great product I bought three of these and gave one to a friend. Since then a bear took one out of my yard and a bear took one out of her yard. The product was great and I plan on replacing them but they're not bear proof!Date published: 2016-05-20

I have the replacement springs, but I am not sure how to assemble the tubes and cage. A small square on one side seems like it would restrict motion. Also, one of the springs is much smaller than the other two. Does it have a different function?The replacement springs for this feeder should all be the same length. If one spring is shorter, then these are likely the replacement springs for our 336 feeder.
