Why do I need 18” of clearance?

< Back/Retour

Our feeders are effective against squirrels when squirrels have to apply their weight onto the feeder. If it can attach itself to a nearby foothold, it will not trigger the closing mechanism and easily gain access to seed. Allowing the 18″ clearance will force the squirrel to climb onto the feeder, thus triggering the closing mechanism and blocking access.
