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.

Suggestion for a better product

★★★★★
I like this and it definitely prevents squirrels from getting at the contents. The feeding holes for the birds on only on the bottom half of the feed. There should be feeding ports on the top half as well. I don't think this would diminish the functionality whatsoever while allowing more birds to feed at once. Just a thought.......

Awesome Feeder

★★★★★
Money well spent I have to say. This feeder does a terrific job keeping the squirrels out. The only food they get is the food the birds drop. The birds found it quickly and it has brought me much joy watching the birds eat. I will probably add another one somewhere else later on. Thank you for your wonderful product. Merry Christmas!

Best bird feeders on the planet

★★★★★
I’ve tried various bird feeder brands and the Brome feeders are hands down worth the investment. I live in TX and our squirrels here are persistent, pesky, and resilient but in spite of their best efforts have not been able to penetrate this feeder. I love the variety of birds that visit my feeders. In addition, the customer service is top notch. No questions asked if you need replacement parts due to the lifetime guarantee. My next purchase will be their new line of suet feeders. Great product!

Perches too large

★★★★☆
Love this feeder but the perches are much too large to keep away the grackles, starlings and blackbirds. How about a way to change out the perches to have smaller ones?
- Adam C

Adam, Thank you for your review. We are glad you love this feeder. To deter the blackbirds, you can try switching to safflower seeds which they do not like or remove the perches to make it difficult for them to land.

★☆☆☆☆
My squirrel solution 200 is not attractive to our birds. I have switched food out of it into another feeder and the comes come back in droves. MySS 200 is clean but the birds will not use it. I have tried three different types of food and it isn't working. I have four feeders and never had a one which is so avoided. s
- Thomas Marx

Thomas, Please don’t give up just yet. Cornell Lab of Ornithology says that it can take birds up to 2 months to discover and then get used to a new feeder. Also please make sure that the feeder is located close to cover and there are no cats or other predators roaming about. Thank you for your review!

Best Feeder

★★★★★
This is the best squirrel proof feeder. They made the leaves stronger and the squirrels can’t bend them so they can’t get to the seeds. Customer service is the best.
