I positioned this above my feeder because the flange and set screw do NOT work for below-feeder positioning on very thin poles (the screw just slips off the pole). Using it above the feeder worked for about one day. Then the squirrels figured out how to grab onto the feeder as they slid off the baffle. Device is useless when used above the feeder.
The squirrels have not given up. They climb up the pole every single day. But the two feeders at the top of that pole remain untouched! They simply can't figure out how to get around it! The biggest factor: the feeders must be ABOVE the baffle - the whole feeder - or they will be able to reach the seed. We give the squirrels their own feeder since we have dozens of them - but I am happy to say, the birds now have their own feeder, too. Only took me 20 years to try this. Highly recommended!
Could not use with the feeder I purchased because of hook. But for other feeders it is well made and a bargain price compared to other umbrella covers.
I have a hanging bird feeder and the squirrels emptied it out in one day. After using the baffle, they couldn't get to it any more. Great product and good price.
The product is of good quality and easy to install. Now if we could just get the squirrels to agree with us it would be great!
For a hanging bird feeder, this baffle really keeps the squirrels away. They slide off not getting to feeder.
The squirrels slide right off, especially after I sprayed these with food grade silicone!
Classy-looking and the idea seems logical, but -- although their first few attempts were amusing, the squirrels figured it out in less than a day.
(december 2022) I like it... It keep the bird food dry from snow and rain. However aside from costing more than I think its worth -- there is a design flaw. The piece that is connected to the hook just fits in the hole to hold the baffle. Which means when your friendly flying squirrel takes a leap and lands on the baffle it can tip the baffle in a way that it will get stuck. If a squirrel can't leap to your feeders from a tree or other support then this baffle is only great for keeping snow and rain off the food. You will however need to brush the snow off (like any other baffle). It's close, but just needs a bit of tweaking to make it great... I might or might not recommend it to a friend - it would depend on their set up.
No problem with squirrel invasion. We have it on pole feeder.
