Perky-Pet® Fortress® Breakaway Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

 

Perky-Pet® Fortress® The Breakaway Bird Feeder

This squirrel proof birdfeeder will keep the squirrels from raiding the feeder while allowing the birds to eat to their hearts' and stomachs' content!

 

The Perky-Pet® Fortress® Breakaway Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder features 4 feeding ports, a 3.5 lb. seed capacity and an easy-fill wide mouth top. The perches ‘break away’ under the weight of a squirrel and the seed ports shut simultaneously, as a result. This model is for hang mounting and features a quick release metal top. The clear plastic reservoir makes it easy to monitor seed levels. These innovations make this squirrel proof birdfeeder one of the most economical and convenient on the market!

 

Remember to clean your squirrel proof birdfeeder at least twice a week with a mild soap and water solution.

  Amazon Review, Squirrel-proof bird feeder 
Reviewer:

I've had this for about a month and so far the squirrels are defeated. The feeder is an attractive shape and easy to fill, with a latching lid. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to prevent squirrels from eating the bird seed.

  Sturdy - No Problems 
Reviewer:

This birdfeeder is sturdy, simple to use and requires little to no cleaning. Squirrels can't feed from it, but its very entertaining to watch them try.

  Amazon Review, It works 
Reviewer:

The squirrels hate it, but the birds love it! Best place is in the trees where the squirrels can only watch!

  Amazon Review 
Reviewer:

This is a very well made product and the design is truly squirrel-proof. My birds love this feeder and fly to it before any other feeder. I like the way it does not spin, I can view the birds better, and they perch longer. The feeder was larger than I thought from the picture, but that is a good thing. I was hoping this feeder would also deter the chipmunks, but they can still find a way to hang on the perch and they are too light weight to trigger the closer. The feeder arrived within a few days and I was so impressed. I had searched for several days before deciding on a squirrel-proof feeder, concerned that my purchase would be lost money, but this feeder is exceptional!! Highly recommended. Thanks for creating such a good design.

  Love it 
Reviewer:

I received this one as a gift from my son in law. The squirrels have not got in it as of yet. I have had it 3 months.

  Review Posted on Amazon.com 
Reviewer:

This feeder is excellent. Best one I've ever had. It allows larger seeds and nuts into the feeding port and not get stuck, backing up the rest of the seeds as other feeders do. Seed stays dry even during the hardest rains. Birds love it. Squirrels hate it. Perfect.

  Amazon Review 
Reviewer:

I have been trying for years to find a "raccoon-proof" bird feeder. The only types can find are expensive, complicated and require being strung between two poles. I don't have room in my yard or time for that aggravation. So I just started looking for "squirrel-proof" feeders. I was looking for a feeder with a) no base for the raccoons to get a grip on (they have demolished two feeders this way); b) a good solid seal at the top; c) collapsible perches.
This feeder of course has a) and c) covered. The top is thick solid metal with a pressure button on one side (though the seal & mechanism could be better).
I have had it up about a week, and the raccoons have certainly tried to get at the seed, but so far have failed. One morning the top was askew--I think the little b@stards were able to grip & tug on the feeder from the bottom--and one of the metal perch "guards" had been knocked off. However, they had been unable to bring the feeder down from its pole, and very little birdseed had spilled. The material was undamaged and I was able to re-attach the perch guard. So far (one week), the raccoons seem to be foiled, while the birds feed easily & happily.
Pros: Excellent construction and design. If squirrels are all you have to worry about, I recommend this feeder without reservation. Hang it from a pole--not a tree branch--as high as you can.
Cons: 1. I particularly dislike that the container is made of plastic. It is thick, strong plastic but I would have greatly preferred a stronger material that will be less affected over time by the elements (acrylic comes to mind).
2. I REALLY REALLY wish that this item came in a larger size, to hold more seed and have more perches! I would totally buy at least one!

The squirrels fed on this until the ports broke off. One went missing I think the squirrels stole it

Dear Sharon,

Thank you for reviewing the Perky-Pet® Fortress® The Breakaway Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder (model 5110PP). We are sorry to hear that you had difficulty protecting your feeder from squirrels.

 

This can be a constant battle for many back yard birdfeeders like yourself. You may want to consider trying a more holistic approach to preventing squirrel damage. Try pole mounting or hanging your feeder, making sure it is at least 10ft from the closest launching point and at least 4-5 ft above the ground. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.

 

We look forward to hearing from you!
