The second those pesky squirrels try to rob the feeder, the weight-activated shield slams down, closing the three feeding ports to prevent squirrels from snatching the goods. Adjust the weight setting as needed to keep off larger birds as well to ensure your favorite birds get plenty of seed, so they stick around for your bird-watching pleasure.Squirrel Proof Design To offer defense against squirrels, this feeder boasts multiple great features. First, is the feeder’s weight-activated perch, which is calibrated to support the weight of birds but not squirrels. When squirrels try to gain access to the seed, the ports close off under their weight. Birds can sit on the perch without activating it. The sensitivity can also be adjusted to keep out larger nuisance birds. In addition, the miniature baffle provides an extra guard, while the metal frame discourages chewing.
To ensure a 100% squirrel proof feeder, placement is key! Hang the feeder with at least 18 inches of clearance on all sides so squirrels can’t easily reach the ports without activating the perch.Enjoyable for Birds and You Three feeding stations let multiple birds enjoy dining at this Perky Pet® Squirrel Slammer Bird Feeder. The tube keeps the bird seed inside dry, while the clear cover provides shelter for your favorite backyard birds as they dine on the seed you provide. The roomy perches at the base let them relax and enjoy a meal from all angles while you enjoy their presence in your yard.Simple and Durable Rely on the strong, durable design of the Perky Pet® Squirrel Slammer Bird Feeder.

Review Rate3 stars for now
Just bought it. First thing I noticed is that it hangs from two rods making it impossible to slide a baffle onto it that you might use if it had a single rod. Might consider that in future designs as a baffle would then prevent squirrels from opening the top or having anything to grab onto. Second thing I noticed, the tension adjustment does not make a significant change in the tension so I will see if this really will stop squirrels. Third, the feeding ports don't fully close even with full weight on the porch. Lastly, mine arrived with metal feeding ring supports bent out of shape. I was able to bend them back reasonably close to circular shape. Hoping plexiglass slide will prevent squirrels from having something to hand on. Will find out tomorrow how squirrels do, lol.
Review RateRedesign with plastic crossbar means this feeder isn’t squirrel proof.
I bought this feeder as a replacement for the same model I got through Amazon and enjoyed for many years without problems. In the new one, you have replaced the metal crossbar with a hard plastic one. The feeder lasted 2 months before squirrels chewed off the end of the crossbar, leaving the metal hanger to fall off, and the whole feeder to crash to the ground and crack apart. Why did you change the design from metal to plastic when it’s clear that squirrels can target the exposed ends of the plastic crossbar?Response From Perky-Pet®Rachel : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateSuspension dowel plastic -- squirrels eat right through
As another reviewer said, the top suspension dowel is made of plastic. Squirrels ate right through the ends and ruined the feeder. Checked the website and there do not appear to be replacement parts. If that piece were metal it would solve the problem.Response From Perky-Pet®Rachel : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot totally squirrel proofNice feeder. Good size. But, being a squirrel proof feeder the main suspension part, green rod is made of plastic, which didn’t take long for squirrels to chew through it.
Review RateTension dial doesn't catch. Birds cannot access seeds. Permanently shut.
After less than 6 months of use, the tension dial stopped working. I now cannot get the perch to open for the birds to access the seeds. It is permanently shut unless I manually hold it open. The tension dial just spins and spins.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateI would definitely recommend this feeder.
Love it. The squirrels can’t get in it. The only thing is the cardinals don’t seem to land on it. We’ve had nuthatches, chickadees and finches. We also have had downys. No Squirrels!!!!
Review RateSquirrels are smart..
It only 2 days for the birds to enjoy the new bird feeder. Four days for the squirrels to figure out how to get feed. " Tony" learn to push his nose under the lid and push until his body had raised the lid high enough to get his body inside the tube. He could back out of the tube with no problem. Neighbors and I enjoyed the show. I used a paper clip to secure the lid, so far so good.
Review RateSquirrel feeder
My neighbor bought one and after a week a squirrel figured out how to lift the lid and crawl down the tube!!! We have had lots of fun watching him. Apparently he hasn't shared his secret because the other ones haven't figured it out! They are pretty cleaver animals. My neighbor used a paper clip on the top. We will see if that works.
Review Rategood feederTakes several days for birds to use this feeder, I think it because they see themselves in the plastic
Review Rateanything I can do.
The feeder looks and works good but when I put small bird food in, it pours out of the bottom. Its OK with sunflower seeds because they are larger . Anything I can do?Response From Perky-Pet®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
