Hang or Pole Mount
This transparent 16-inch squirrel baffler can be hung or pole mounted. When hanging the baffler, it blocks squirrels from above. The included hooks have the strength to hold up to 50 pounds. The top hook attaches the baffler to a tree limb or other hanging location, while the bird feeder hangs from the second hook located underneath the baffler. Most squirrels will descend the wire to the baffler and give up. A more persistent squirrel may put its weight on the baffler in efforts to access the bird feeder below, but after climbing onto the baffler, it will quickly tilt, sending the squirrel down to the ground (startled maybe, but uninjured). The hanging baffler has the added benefit of partially protecting bird seed from rain and tree debris.
When placed on bird feeder poles, this baffler prevents squirrels from gaining access to the bird feeder from below. Squirrels may try to climb up to the feeder, but they won't be able to get around the baffler. To pole mount this baffler, simply lower it over the top of the pole and screw it into place. About a foot below the feeder works best. Everything needed for either hanging or pole mounting comes included: a 16-inch-diameter transparent shield and all hardware (2 hooks, 1 baffle hub, and 3 screws).

They always have what I need and deliver! Thanks!!Date published: 2016-11-12Rated 1 out of 5 by Deadrock from Very poor feeded I purchased this feeder in the spring of 2016....it is not squirrel proof. The squirrel's were able to dismantle the feeder ports & eat thru the plastic to gain access to the bird feed. Once the squirrel's got at the plastic parts of the feeder, they were able to chew holes into the feeder - about 2x2 inch holes. Consequently, the feeder would not hold any bird feed - very disappointed in this product.Date published: 2016-11-03Rated 1 out of 5 by Suzanne from Bottom Not Secured Just bought this tonight I filled it as soon as we got home. So excited that we found the latest and greatest squirrel prof bird feeder. I filled the feeder and went to hang it. 4 feet from the house the bottom fell out!!!! All the bird seed all over the sidewalk. So disgusted. I could probably shove the bottom back on but I am afraid there will be a repeat performanceDate published: 2016-11-02Rated 1 out of 5 by Tony from Would not recommend this product.

Does nothing to keep squirrels away and broke apart thanks to the squirrels.Date published: 2016-10-29Rated 5 out of 5 by The Bakers from Solid and so far, good deterrent against squirrels Have only had my feeder up one week - so far so good on squirrel deterrent. Strongly advise hanging on a strong metal shepherd's hook type pole, away from things that squirrels can jump from. Also, use coconut oil or similar substance on the pole to keep the squirrels off. However, the lubricant will weaken and the critters will get on the feeder. Given the capacity, the feeder doesn't require frequent refilling - the avian critters love it.Date published: 2016-09-13Rated 1 out of 5 by DavidF from Feeder is not the least bit squirrel proof. Feeder was decimated by our squirrels. Inhale two that I plan on nailing back to the manufacturer. The squirrels first chewed off the top sprung that holds on the lid to keep the bird seed inside the feeder. Then they proceeded to check the plastic sides so that the see just spills out from the feeder. Do not buy this feeder it is not squirrel proof and a waste of money.Date published: 2016-09-09Rated 3 out of 5 by Nicole from Screws didn't fit When attaching the baffler using the screws, I had to use a drill because of how tight the holes were! Not sure if it was just a one-off manufacturing glitch on the one I purchased, but it was a bit of a hassle.Date published: 2016-08-30Rated 1 out of 5 by Bizzer from Terrible This feeder last 3 months before the squirrels figured out how to gnaw away at the metal lip below the opening. Once that was gone they chewed inch long holes into the plastic and well its a smorgasbord for them now if I fill it. The design idea is good but the inner tube needs to be made of glass or a tougher material than plastic.Date published: 2016-08-27
What kind of seeds or seed mix are recommended for this feeder?We recommend using black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, and/or mixed seed for this feeder.Date published: 2016-11-10
How do you take it apart to clean feeder?This feeder can be taken apart by removing the springs attached from the metal cage to the inner tube. The tube will then detach from the base at the bottom and allow it to slide out of the metal cage.Date published: 2016-11-09

How do the squirrels still get at our bird food? When they land on the feeder it closes like it is supposed to, then they move it around somehow and it opens while they are still on it. Then they reach in and help themselves.Thank you for sharing this unusual experience. If the squirrels are gaining access to the seed, we would recommend adjusting the weight tension of the springs. Also, relocating the feeder so that it hangs at least 5 feet from the ground and 10 feet away from launching points such as fences, decks, branches, and rooftops may help deter the squirrels.Date published: 2016-10-25
