The need for clearance

Remember it’s the squirrel’s weight that triggers the closing mechanism. If a squirrel can reach over from a nearby foothold and avoid placing weight on the feeder, he will have access to the seed ports. Allow for at least 18 inches or 47 cm of clearance around the feeder. This will force the squirrel to climb onto the feeder, thus triggering the closing mechanism.

Locating your feeder

You can locate this bird feeder anywhere and be squirrel free. Position it to get great close-up views of your favorite birds. Hang your feeder over a window, in a tree, on a deck, a fence, in your garden, on the side of your house, from a rain trough or over sliding doors. Use brackets, extension hooks and tree hooks to hang your feeder at the recommended clearance. Hooks and brackets are available at birding stores, garden centers and hardware supply stores. Your feeder prevents squirrels from eating expensive seed, scaring the birds and damaging your feeder. Enjoy being free of squirrel problems, but please remember, squirrels also need to eat. For the price of a few peanuts, or inexpensive cracked corn, squirrels will be happy to entertain.

Sticking

★★★☆☆
my legacy was working great until it wasn't - now i have to hand close and open the feed from the base - it seems to be sticking - when bully birds show up I close it and when they are gone I re open it - it is not closing automatically even though I have it set to the lightest birds - all the way to the negative sign - I've cleaned it and it is still happening - help?

Legacy

★★★★★
I received me of these as a gift and loved it so much I bought another. I have saved a lot of bird feed and my birds love to eat from this feeder. I would highly recommend it .

Thank you

★★★★★
A few weeks ago I called regarding a problem with the plunger. You were very gracious in sending one to me in a few days. Sadly it was the wrong one and I called to get a replacement which was sent to me again in a few days. I was very pleased with your service. I was able to correct my problem and the birds are happy.

Squirrel Feeder

★☆☆☆☆
The grey squirrels in my Florida backyard have figured out how to defeat the shroud assembly on the Solution 150 that is supposed to close over the seed tray assembly. The feeder is hanging from a 6 foot shepherd's hook pole. They will make a standing jump (about 4 feet) from the ground below to grasp the seed tray and avoid the shroud. With their front claws grasping the tray, the shroud is not pulled down, and they can gorge themselves on the seeds. Tried putting hot pepper on the seeds to no avail. Very disappointed in the Solution 150 design. I have two Squirrel Buster Plus feeders and a Standard in my backyard with no problems.

Bear proof

★★★★★
I have the peanut, legacy and plus. I recently had a mother black bear and oddly 4 cubs dismantle all 4 of my hanging feeders. I watched Mom, tear all of them off the house over the course of 30 minutes. All the metal hangers on the feeders needed to be straightened and bent back into shape at the ends so they could be hung, but they all still function. The Plus tube ended up with 3 tooth punctures but still functions perfectly fine. After retrieving them from the woods, i bent the hangers back and hung them back up. Still working great. Bear resistant if not bear proof if you ask me. Oh, the legacy one was ripped off the house a second time and has no damage other than a slightly bent hanging rod which i had to bend back and form the triangle on the end again. Awesome!
