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.


The Classic feeder is not squirrel proof! They can reach their grubby little paws right through the wire cage and help themselves. I am very disappointed!
- Jane Boyd

Jane, thank you for your review! Please don’t forget to follow our recommendation of an 18-inch clearance on all sides when hanging your feeder. You can find more information in the brochure that came with your feeder or you can always give us a call at 1-800-856-5685.

The feeder does not snap back after a squirrel has been on it. You sent a new, center rod, but the tension is still inadequate. Help!

our Squirrel Buster Classic worked very well for several years. Now the squirrels just stick their face under the top and flip it off. That was ok but today they chewed the inside of the feeder and it fell to the ground. We were having a problem with raccoons taking the feeder and we had to check the woods to find it. but now we take the feeder inside each night. We bought one of your finch feeders and we never did found it. It was up for one night.Maybe when the leaves fall! Can we buy replace parts for the Squirrel Proof Classic model? the wire cage outside is ok and so is the tube but the cable and inside the top is chewed. This just happened in the daylight. thanks

This is the best bird feeder we have ever used and it is approximately 99% squirrel proof. You can just watch the squirrels exercising their brains to try to figure out how to obtain food from the feeder. We have just one squirrel that has figured out how to eat from the feeder. She hangs on the tree and stretches out with her front legs and using her front paws obtains whatever food is available. And she only has a tail about 5 inches long.

Wonderful warranty support

Wow. I called them to get a replacement part for a Classic feeder and found out the warranty is lifetime. They are sending me the part right away at no charge. The support desk is delightful to work with. I am so glad I bought their feeder. Worth every penny.

Not squirrel proof

Purchased the classic in May 2020 (Mother’sDay) and the squirrels have figured out how to open the lid and chewed the plastic bar completely in half, causing it to fall and I can’t secure the cap. They have also chewed the lid so it doesn’t close. Also had the same problem, they jump on the feeder and spin it causing the seed to spin out.
- Sharon Horan
