Review RateChristmas GiftI bought this as a gift for family who had just moved into a new house. They were thrilled.
Review RateSturdy, easy to installWe 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.
Review RateBirds 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.
Review Ratebirds love itI 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.
Review RateSquirrel proofFirst feeder that truly deters squirrels.
Review RateGreat PoleHave been looking for something like this and just happened on the one at Perky Pet. It goes together easily and I just love it -- so do the birds. It looks really nice in the garden and is just what I wanted.
Review RateEasy installHave had it for two weeks now and it is great, Price is good fast shipping (UPS). I would like the hook area to be a little larger, otherwise good product.
Review RateGreat productIt's been 2 weeks since I've purchased the bird feeder pole for my metal squirrel proof bird feeder, my feeder is metal and has good weight to it and the pole I ordered is perfect, there's no sway when the wind blows my feeder stays planted on top it's high enough off the ground using all the poles even pushed into the ground nearly a foot the deer don't bother my feeder, the coating on the bird pole is thick and durable, the plastic hook that comes with the bird pole is durable as well even though it's plastic, however I would like to see the hook on the end be a deeper make to securely keep a feeder that is lighter than others to stay on the hook otherwise during a windy day it will fall off so far I installed the plastic hook on a wooden circular pole with another metal bird feeder, when full of seed it stays without falling off, overall a great bird pole for the price and its manufacturing no issues installing it, I will be purchasing another very soon.
Review RateGreat bird feeder!I bought this product a couple of weeks ago and I love it! I was concerned about the feral cats in the neighborhood but still wanted to see the birds. So far it works great! I will have to buy a squirrel baffle, though. Overall, though, great feeder pole and easy to install. I did reinforce it a little with some rebar pounded into the ground because we have very sandy soil.
Review RateStrong,sturdy,several applicationsPurchased one day,installed a day later,easy to put up.
