Transparent Squirrel Baffler

Perky-Pet® Transparent Squirrel Baffler

Squirrels have a way of ransacking a bird feeder, dumping all the feed onto the ground and making a mess of things. If you find peace in watching wild birds at the bird feeder--but not so much those pesky squirrels, this Perky-Pet® Transparent Squirrel Baffler can help.

With its large 16-inch diameter and gently curved dome-shaped profile, there's no getting around it: birds can enjoy eating at the feeder, and squirrels will be blocked from bothering them.

Save money on seed, reduce time refilling and cleaning up your bird feeders, and enjoy a less stressful viewing experience with this baffler in place. It promotes a more efficient way to feed wild birds and can be used with any bird feeder.

Hang or Pole Mount

This transparent 16-inch squirrel baffler can be hung or pole mounted. When hanging the baffler, it blocks squirrels from above. The included hooks have the strength to hold up to 50 pounds. The top hook attaches the baffler to a tree limb or other hanging location, while the bird feeder hangs from the second hook located underneath the baffler. Most squirrels will descend the wire to the baffler and give up. A more persistent squirrel may put its weight on the baffler in efforts to access the bird feeder below, but after climbing onto the baffler, it will quickly tilt, sending the squirrel down to the ground (startled maybe, but uninjured). The hanging baffler has the added benefit of partially protecting bird seed from rain and tree debris.

When placed on bird feeder poles, this baffler prevents squirrels from gaining access to the bird feeder from below. Squirrels may try to climb up to the feeder, but they won't be able to get around the baffler. To pole mount this baffler, simply lower it over the top of the pole and screw it into place. About a foot below the feeder works best. Everything needed for either hanging or pole mounting comes included: a 16-inch-diameter transparent shield and all hardware (2 hooks, 1 baffle hub, and 3 screws). is the top destination to find quality Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories. Perky-Pet®, K-Feeders and NO/NO® wild bird products are trusted brands to bird lovers everywhere. Interact with nature, relax and build memories that last a lifetime by conveniently ordering from Happy Bird Feeding!

Great product By Swampcat

Great product. We found that if we hung the feeder right below the baffle the squirrels could swing onto the feeder. We installed an 18 inch cable between the baffle and the feeder. Problem solved, the squirrels try to get to the feeder and they tilt the baffle and end up on the ground!

Good Basic Design; Hub Needs Improvement By Evaluator

The baffle is well designed and has worked well for us BUT.... The baffle sits on a hub made of hard plastic. The hub attaches to your feeder pole with three metal screws going through the hard plastic. Our hub broken within a day of installation. Metal screws through hard plastic is not a good combination. The hub should probably be made of metal rather than plastic. FYI: The baffle comes with a 1 year warranty. Perky Pets was willing to send us a new hub. FYI#2: The hole in the hub is about 1 3/8 inches in diameter. If your pole is a smaller diameter, the hub may "rock" on the pole.

New use for bafflers!!!! By lunchlady24

Love this item! Although...I did not buy them to baffle squirrels. I use mine to keep my hummie feeders dry when it rains. I discovered years ago that nectar does not last as long if it gets wet, it gets cloudy and "green". NOT GOOD! These baffles work wonders and the hummies love them, too!!!!!

Squirrels will not be fooled. By robarb

The Squirrel Proof Cover works just fine, but the squirrels jump from the shepherd's hook onto the feeder which, though advertised as squirrel proof, is furnishing meals of seed to many different squirrels. I cannot believe there is a positively foolproof way of keeping our bushy tailed friends from helping themselves to the sunflower seeds.

Good Squirrel Baffle By GregOshtemo
Large diameter protects the feeder. I also like the hooks above and below. I bought a different baffle a few years ago that had a hole in the top for hanging the feeder and it just let water through and let the food get wet. This is much better.

Nice concept, doesn\'t work By Skipp
It worked for about five minutes. I bought this yesterday and after the third attempt, the squirrels were on the feeder below. I tried every conceivable height, but nothing deterred the squirrels.

We recommend to hang feeder at least 5-8 feet off of the ground. Squirrels can jump 4 feet vertically. Bafflers prevent the squirrels from stretching down from a tree branch and stealing food.

Squirrels broke in within a week! By SquirrelsareNutsinMN
I tried everything prior to this Baffler. These squirrels almost gave up on my feeder, but not quite. It seems as though they called in a professional to do the job. He actually broke the heavy plastic hook in half (like you see in the photo). Not sure if it ate threw it or clawed it, but it was broken in half. I can't tell you the $$ I went through to keep squirrels out of my bird feeder. I give up and throw in the towel! I thought after seeing so many fail to get at this, I'd actually found the perfect product. Nothing, nowhere is squirrel proof apparantly. And people say animals are stupid? I wish I had had a camera on this to see how it actually broke. The only evidence was the fat and happy squirrel laying next to it on the ground so full he couldn't move.

The bafflers can hold up to 50 lbs if hanging above the feeder. A squirrel typically will put its weight on the baffler in efforts to access the bird feeder below, but after climbing onto the baffler, it will quickly tilt, sending the squirrel down to the ground. We apologize if this was not your experience and appreciate the feedback.

Our bafflers are backed by a one year warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for further assistance.
