Perky-Pet® Fortress® The Breakaway Bird Feeder Set

 

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 makes 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.

  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.

  Best feeder ever!! 
Reviewer:

I had a horrible problem with squirrels at my feeders! I bought 2 of these feeders and have now had the pleasure of watching squirrels fall off and not able to even access seed at all!! I have spent sooooo much money on seed and now thanks to this feeder, only the birds get to eat!! Thanks so much!

  Amazon Review, Excellent feeder 
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.

  Superior customer service! 
Reviewer:

Last winter one of the metal ports came off my Fortress Breakaway feeder. I contacted customer service to buy a replacement port, and instead was offered a complete new feeder! I can't say enough great things about this company, its employees and its quality products. My thanks to Perky Pet from me and the backyard birds enjoying the feeders.

  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!

  halfway to greatness 
Reviewer:

Day 1, we were very pleased to see that our tenacious squirrels were foiled in their initial efforts to conquer this feeder. The bottom half of the device works superbly, and the overall design makes it very difficult for squirrels to climb down the feeder. Day 2, imagine our surprise when we see a squirrel banquet in progress. They simply pulled the lid off the feeder, turned it sideways, and proceeded to devour birdseed out of both sides of the top of the feeder. I have resorted to duct tape to secure the lid. Either our squirrels are trained engineers, or this feeder is only halfway to greatness.

Thank you for reviewing the Perky-Pet® Fortress® The Breakaway Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder (model 5110PP). We appreciate your feedback concerning the lid to this feeder. As you have experienced protecting your birdfeeder from squirrels can be an endless battle for many backyard birdfeeders like yourself. Using a feeder like this is a great way to prevent squirrels from gaining access to the seed inside. To avoid these pests from accessing your feeder often times a more holistic approach is needed. Try hanging your feeder 10 feet from the nearest squirrel launching site and at least 5 feet off of the ground. For more information on protecting your feeder please do not hesitate to visit our Learning Center

 

We hope you find this information to be helpful. If you have questions our Consumer Relations Team is available at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) to help!
