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.

Best Feeder on the Market

After more than a decade of using Brome Bird Feeders I can clearly say they are the best on the market. I've had two working together for this entire period, one with black oiled sunflower seed and one with with standard wild bird seed. Yes, they need to be cleaned and cared for a bit. However, it's an easy chore. Treat yourself to one. It's the best investment you can make.

I hope I can send you a picture of a bear trying to get into one of your feeders. I've had mine for years and last fall a bear got to it. He destroyed it as a feeder but had a very tough time doing it. I'll send you a picture.

Finally found a feeder that is truly squirrel proof. My family and I get almost as much enjoyment out of watching squirrels figure this feeder out as we do watching the birds! Looks to be a quality made product and stands up to its promises!

To beat the squirrels for the required 18" on my shepherds hook clamped to the deck.......I took a vinyl glove, spread vaseline on it and sprinkled cayenne pepper on top and then greased the vertical portion of the iron pole. It was hilarious to see the first squirrel jump on the vertical portion and then slide all the way down. Once he licked his paws, he must have told his buddies, because they don't go near the pole. Excellent product. I adjust the weight just right so the starlings can't have any of the good stuff either. I also found a product with no waste (no shells) which works for everyone including the squirrels who pick up the remains not the ground below. Awesome product! I think I need to get another feeder!

Amazing service. Amazing product. After a couple years I had trouble with the two standards I had. They cheerfully replaced them quickly. With service like that they have a lifetime customer.

I love this feeder, but it is not without problems. The closing mechanism freezes and does not function if there has been rain followed by freezing temperatures. The squirrels like this feature, but not me. I have to bring it inside and let it thaw and dry out before it will work again.
