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.

Brome, Of Course

★★★★★
I just want to say that I have been searching the Internet for an effective, affordable squirrel-proof feeder. Then I thought, "What am I doing? I should get another Brome!" You, true to your word, replaced broken part on my Mini feeder this past year, and it is working great. I would like to get another one, so have asked for you to let me know when they are available. Once you have had a Brome, stick with it!

Best feeder ever

★★★★★
I have had my standard size bird feeder for years and this year the tube screws all broke. I went online to order another when I realized that it was guaranteed for life. I called and spoke to a real person who was so helpful and put an order in for a replacement tube. I arrived today, not just the tube but the whole inside part. I have been so impressed by the product you sell, and now by the customer service you provide! I would buy a suet feeder, but I have not seen the birds that feed on it here in central Texas, although I often saw them when I lived up north. If I buy it, will they come? Thank you for your great product and service!

Not good when it rains!!

★★★☆☆
This feeder is not good when it rains. The seeds get wet and clogged making it hard to unclogged and the birds won't eat the seeds once they get wet. The birds can't get to the dry ones because the seeds that got wet clog the feeder. I called the store where I purchased the feeder and was told there is a PLASTIC cap I can purchase that goes over the top to protect the seeds from the rain, BUT IT COST MORE THAN THE FEEDER!

Squirrels quit trying

★★★★★
I bought the mini because I agree that soggy seeds after a rain are a mess. If you hang it so that the only way a squirrel can get to it is down hanger and on to the top of it, they eventually have to put their weight on it and close it. I have found one problem with its small size… Occasionally there is a small twig in the birdseed or it has two peanuts try to go through the opening to the tray at the same time and clog up one of the four channels making its seed supply even smaller. I suppose I can shop for different seed mix or use all sunflower seeds but it seems the channels should not be made to so easily become blocked.

design question

★★★★☆
I'm into my 2nd mini squirrel buster. No 1 lasted 6 years. The same design issue is now getting to number 2. In wet weather the seeds clump together, and I take the feeder apart to wash it. The places that give way are the 2 plastic screw sockets, holding the seed tray to the plastic sleeve. The screw holes eventually crack, although I disassemble and reassemble very carefully. I glue the cracks, which extends the life for another season. Any way the screw holders could be made more robust? Many thanks Alan (Leeds, Yorkshire, UK)
