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.


We have had our Brome Plus for about 6 years and the weather finally got to it. How much would a lower section (tube & feeder) cost?

Great idea but a few hick ups

This is my second one.The idea behind them is great only 2 issues...after a few years the spring tends to get lax, maybe due to the weight of the birds or maybe a squirrel or two. Secondly every so often I have to loosen the seeds on the holes because they tend to cake up possibly due to dampness or rain...

Definitely NOT squirrel proof. I even took a picture of a red squirrel sitting on one of the perches and reaching through the metal grill that comes down o very the openings. Just put his paw through snd scooped out seeds.
- Jane Vockrodt

Hi Jane, Thanks for your review! We are truly sorry to hear that red squirrels are emptying your feeder. This time of the year there are many juvenile squirrels out there. For now you can add additional weights to the feeder, eg: washers on a fishing line or you try removing all the perches.

Superior Product & Customer Service

I was given the Squirrel Buster Plus as a birthday gift about five years ago. It has worked marvelously and truly been squirrel-proof in our active garden. Recently the spring in the center tube had rusted to the point where the adjustment rod was giving too much slack, thereby closing the feeding ports. After a quick and easy five minute call to customer service, they had another one ready to ship. Before we hung up the phone, I even had an email in my inbox with a tutorial on how to replace the part. (I've also purchased the Squirrel Buster Mini a few years ago which works just as great.) I wholeheartedly recommend the Squirrel Buster series.

Product Satisfaction

My daughter gave me the Squirrel Buster Plus for Father's Day and in a very short time I had more birds in my yard than I could identify. Funny thing, NO squirrels!! When one was able to fix itself to the feeder, of course it closed the doors to the food and the poor squirrel could do NOTHING but go around in circles until he/she became totally frustrated. This is the best Father's Day gift my daughter could have given me. This is THE best feeder anti squirrel on the market if not in the world.

Squirrel buster "the best"

If you enjoy feeding birds these feeders are the best! We have had the "Plus" for a lot of years, had a problem with it and got the part for it without a problem! Best service ever! We like the feeders so much we bought another to put seed in for Cardinals!
