Please follow all label instructions for your specific use.Perky-Pet® Universal Bird Feeder Pole is rated out of 5 by 59.Rated 4 out of 5 by Fox7 from Sturdy, easy to install We haven't had the pole up long but it was easy to install and is very sturdy. We are using it will a Perky-Pet bird feeder and the pole fits into the hole in the bottom well but it rocks a little (not really snug) so that is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I may wrap a little something around the top of the pole to snug it up a little. We love the feeder and pole combo though.Date published: 2016-12-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoy from Bird Feeder Poles Excellent value. We have 4 poles so far. Standing up well.Date published: 2016-10-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Seahawk30 from Birds love it. Had to replace an old feeder that the squirels destroyed. Took a couple of days for the birds to come back, but they have returned. Finches, Cardinals, sparrows. Very pleased.Date published: 2016-10-08Rated 5 out of 5 by aew1 from birds love it I purchased the feeder pole and feeder and it was so easy to assemble and install. Birds love it, and squirrels have been slowed down by it, although not completely deterred.Date published: 2016-10-03Rated 5 out of 5 by SebringDave from Feeder Stand Was everything I expected. Works great and seems to keep squirrels from the feeder.Date published: 2016-08-30Rated 2 out of 5 by Chip from Question on durability Got this home and started putting it together. Did a test run, hanging the feeder on the plastic hook. It didn't break, but I got the sense once the temps drop below 10 degrees, I'd be picking the bird feeder and the broken hook up off the ground. Might be fine in warm climates, or with the smallest of bird feeders, but I think this product is intended for very light duty. I'll be taking it back on my next trip to HD.Date published: 2016-08-30Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine22 from What can you say about a pole? Great product to hang your hummingbird feeder!

Is it possible to obtain more of the Plastic inserts that are used to bury in the ground, as I am in need of several.

Can two pole units be put together to have the pole 8 feet high after in ground section. I have deer in my yard and need a taller pole.We would not recommend combining two sets of poles as it may not be as stable.Date published: 2016-07-13
