This universal pole measures 7 feet high, so after staking it into the ground, it can keep a bird feeder at least 5 feet above the ground.

The height also helps discourage overly curious cats in the neighborhood.
To install, simply lower the 1-inch-diameter pole down into the sleeve that you've buried in an ideal location of your yard. The pole can be removed quickly and easily as needed--a useful feature when it's time to mow the lawn.
