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.

Great

I had a squirrel problem with trying to feed larger size food, ie peanuts, etc. The birds showed up pretty quickly since we have 4 other feeders. The squirrels tried but finally gave up. I have had this feed for several months now and am really happy with it.

Peanut feeder

★★★★★
We are very pleased with the peanut feeder. A Red-breasted Nuthatch has become a frequent visitor and has become my favorite. We are sorry that the Pileated Woodpeckers are unable to gain access, but that's the way it goes.

Busted by squirrels in two days

★☆☆☆☆
My squirrels have learned how to destroy this feeder by unscrewing the lower screw. The screw, red washer and red valve, then fall into the snow and the feeder does lock and no birds can get to the feeder. Poorly designed screw and the company’s customer support just tells me to wait a month or so for a replacement screw. Disappointed that I paid $80 and do not have a functional feeder.

S/B feeders are awesome!!

★★★★★
I luv all the S/B feeders! Have woods all around and there's always a line at the feeder waiting to grab a nut. Squirrels gave up even trying!!

A big hit

★★★★★
I have had all sorts of birds use this feeder, including jays, titmice, chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, sparrows, wrens, and yes, starlings. I could adjust the weight to eliminate the starlings but that would also eliminate the blue jays and larger woodpeckers. But as the starlings usually come in numbers, when two get on this feeder it closes them out. I do think the assembly that allows for the weight adjustment would be more durable if the plastic was replaced with metal. But I highly recommend this feeder. I mix peanuts and suet nuggets for the largest variety of birds.
