Review Rategood feeder/ poor lid design
Poor lid design. Lid has blown off several times in the 3 weeks I've had it, the last time the lid was just gone. I called the company, replacement lids not available, so they will replace the entire feeder. That is fine but lid should have better design. I will get a small bungee cord to keep the lid on the replacement..Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and are glad we were able to work together to provide a replacement feeder. The lid should fit snugly in place over the three tubes. Feedback from customers is always valuable.

Review RateThe birds love it!I needed a new feeder since the Perky-Pet feeder I have had for years finally fell apart. It was a 12 post feeder and the birds loved it. I tried a new smaller one but it didn't have the posts the birds were familiar with, plus it didn't allow for the larger birds to land and feed. The Triple Tube is similar with posts and works out very well.
Review Ratetop blew offThe feeder warped and became rounded and the top wouldn't fit tight anymore and the wind blew it away. They want to charge me 7.95 plus shipping just to get a new lid.

Review RateHas pros and consHave only had it hung for a couple of weeks. Birds seem to like it and I like that I can use the 3 tubes to offer them a variety of seed types. My only complaint is that the lid does not fit securely. During a rain storm, it blew off and I ended up with WET seed!
Review RateAmazon Reviewevery once in a while one of the ports falls out but am able to put it back in with no trouble. birds love it!
Review RateAmazon ReviewI've had 5 of these feeders in the past 7 years. Its true that the lids blow off easily but it is also fixed easily. Just get one of the small bungees from Harbor Freight and snap it from one side of the top plate, across the lid and to the top plate on the other side. When you need to refill the feeder just unhook the bungee and remove the lid then re-snap the bungee when you are through. I use these feeders in pairs. One is filled and waiting in the garage while the other is out in the weather with the birds. When the outside one is empty, replace it with the one from the garage. The one you just brought into the garage can sit while the snow and ice melts. When the ice has melted, refill and wait for the next swap. It also helps if you use a second small bungee fastened across , under the bottom plate so you can put a "small" amount of downward pull to a railing or something below the feeder to dampen the swing when the wind is blowing. It doesn't take very much pressure.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI like the feeder. It holds a lot of birdseed. However, it is flimsy and poorly designed. The combination "opening and perch" fall off the tubes. Usually they can be reinstalled, though once in a while not securely. Also, when I received the last shipment, the base had come out of some of the locking mechanisms in the tubes and was loose. The packaging needs to be improved. However, if you are mechanically inclined it can be reassembled. This is my third feeder in three years, so I guess it shows that I like it enough to put up with the inconveniences.
Review RateAmazon Review, Great productThe birds love this feeder, it's their favorite. I think because of all the perches, they don't have to fight over the food. Will buy another when this one wears out.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI ordered this bird feeder and came damaged. Noted no packaging around product. Supplier said they would send a new one with better packaging. 2nd unit showed up undamaged, but must advise had no special packaging the second go around. Otherwise product is expected. Will note construction is all plastic, but still meets expectations.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe bird feeder was a good price. It has a cool look. It has been beaten up a little with the weather, but has stood up well.
