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.

Birds love it

Reviewing this from a design and quality viewpoint I can say not one bad thing. Have used this two full years and although I have a half dozen resident squirrels, they have yet to get any seed from it. However, birds absolutely rip through seed in this feeder. No matter where I place it, and I have three other feeders, they empty this one at an alarming rate. It attracted every possible tube feeder species in the northeast USA. Budget for seed and enjoy the visitors!

I have wasted soooo much money on "squirrel proof" bird feeders. Squirrels although annoying are extremely resourceful and very smart. They will "try try again" until they succeed at getting into a feeder. Ultimately either by destroying or manipulating a feeder & they always win, time & time again. NOT with this feeder! I have spent literally hundreds of dollars on feeders and they have wasted so much seed only to toss yet another "squirrel proof" feeder away that was obliterated by a squirrel not to mention the wasted seed (hey, it adds up lol). This is the ONLY one out of dozens that I have purchased over the years that they have not been able to violate! Sadly I couldn't remember where I bought it or what brand it was, searching the internet for hours, I finally found it! They really need to sell it in more places. This is truly a squirrel proof feeder and very reasonably priced. I just ordered three more! Please don't ever stop making this style.

Squirrels Be Gone

I don't know why I waited so long to add to my one Brome Squirrel Buster Feeder collection but I'm glad I did to get this new feeder. It's easy to fill and the squirrels don't stand a chance. The squirrels were emptying the previous low tech feeder daily and spilling a lot of seed on the ground. No more. Now the birds get their fair share and the squirrels are left begging for scraps. I highly recommend this feeder.

Squirrel Solution 150

This is my first Brome. Squirrels cannot get the seeds, but the cardinals won't eat at the feeder, only finches and other small birds Isn't this product tested before sold?
- Mark Johnson

Hi Mark, all our products get tested for multiple months in muptiple locations. Cardinals are very finicky birds. They take forever to get used to a new feeder. Please give them some time. They love safflower seeds!

I lose so much seed with this feeder. The larger birds/squirrels land on the feeder and it swings and all the seed falls out. The cage does close but does not prevent seed from falling out. I fill it and within a few hours it's empty and all food is on the ground. I do not reccomend.

Best one!

Finally found a bird feeder that the squirrels can get into!! This is my 3rd "squirrel" proof feeder I purchased. One works well but the other one, not so much. I hesitated because of the price but am I ever glad I purchased. First of all the funnel at the bottom, wonderful idea! The squirrels can't figure this one out. I should have taken pics when they were trying to show how clever they can be. They did manage to lock their legs on the pole and stretch their little body over to the feeder part. As soon as they lose their balance and grab for the perch, wham, it closes on them. I was provided a lot of entertainment while they tried to get into it. I finally greased the pole with lard and they haven't attempted to go there again. Thanks for making such a well made product, definitely worth the price!
