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.

I love the Legacy bird feeder! Truth be told I love all the Brome Squirrel Buster feeders! Not only Do I love them but the birds love them as well! And at the end of the year they are incredibly easy to disassemble, clean, and reassemble. Bird feeding makes birdwatching a pleasure!

Absolutely works

★★★★★
We have both the Standard and Legacy models and they reliably deny squirrels any seeds destined for the birds. It is fun watching the squirrels try again and again to beat the feeder (until they learn it's hopeless). The birds come swooping back as soon as the squirrels give up. The only signs of wear after a year and a half are the scratches where the squirrels try to gnaw their way in!

It Works!

★★★★★
It's so rare that products live up to their promise. This one really does! I've been reluctant to take the leap on a squirrel proof feeder because my money is ALWAYS on the squirrel but I'm glad I tried the Legacy. It is really well designed and constructed. The squirrels have tried but just can't get to the seed. I was worried the cardinals might not be able to use it but they can. I've seen blue jays on it as well. Nice work Brome!

Squirrels don't stand a chance

★★★☆☆
Great feeder!!! I haven't had a bird feeder before but since working from home it's become a source of daily joy and entertainment. Took a bit of time for the birds to show up, but I hear that's standard with all birdfeeders. I've seen numerous squirrels try unsuccessfully to get to the feeder and at this point they've pretty much given up. The birds are pretty messy though so there are usually lots of seeds dropped on the ground for the squirrels and other critters to eat. That's actually why I knocked off one star, the discarded seed issue. While I don't really mind squirrels, the seeds also attracted a mama rat who just had babies. As cute as they are, I don't want my house to become a rodent Club Med so would prefer having a way to prevent the seeds from dropping to the ground. I've asked at my local Backyard Birds shop and they said due to the weighted trigger, there isn't a solution to catch the seeds. I'm still working at MacGyver-ing some solution but fear if the gets worse (which with rats, it will) I'll have to take down the feeder.
