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 12 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® and K-Feeders 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!

To Consumer Relations Representative: I've just purchased 7of your squirrel bafflers($96.00) and after reading the reviews I will be returning them. Instead of being politically correct you should be solving the problem, you have been aware of this problem over 3 YEARS and then your company would keep their customers. You've not only cost my company money; you've cost them my time.

I would not purchase this hanger as is -- should be a simple task to redesign a better hanging system. By Bill
I purchased 4 of the transparent baffles to hang two bird feeders. I found by hanging 2 on a single feeder that the squirrels could not get to the feeder ports. However, I have experienced two separate problems with the baffles--- (1) the threads between the upper and lower parts eventually worked loose and caused the feeder to fall and break the baffle cover and the plastic cover for the feeder and (2) the hook for the baffle is so wide open that the wind caused it become unhooked and the feeder fell causing the same result as the first problem.

Buyer Beware!!! By JS

Buyer Beware!!! Purchased 3 of these and all 3 have broken. The shields get tossed around in the wind(doesn't take much, I live in the woods) and end up breaking the cheap plastic round middle portion the screws attach to. A quick look at the reviews will show you this is a major complaint. Just got done chatting with a rep and they have NO REPLACEMENT PARTS for these and offered me a lousy 15% discount to purchase more shields. So instead of offering me parts(which I would gladly pay for!), they want you to purchase entirely new products. They just lost a customer.

Pole mounted Squirrel baffle - warranty By Cally

I had a baffle that lasted for several years (pole mount) - cracked around the pole which I fixed with tape. Decided to buy a new one - it's been on for about 5 days and today cracked in half in the wind. So disappointed. Is there a warranty.

screw company and plastic company need better colaboration By LorLor

I am beyond frustrated, more than a squirrel. When you try to do the upside down method so you can block them from climbing the pole and follow the instructions, the screws cannot be screwed in b/c the plastic is blocking it. I worked on it for an hour and got them in just enough to make shift it but not how it is suppose to be secured.

Excellent but prone to breakage By enwyecentral

Excellent squirrel baffle that does the job but is inconspicuous. I have 2 of them and they work and look very nice. The one weak point is the double hook which is prone to breakage as it is plastic. It breaks off in a strong wind at the point where the hooks are connected through a brass insert. As my baffles are no longer covered under the warranty and since replacement parts are not available, I'll have to improvise the repair using steel hardware.

No way to replace broken hubs/hooks By Teri

I have several of these baffles, and for the most part, I really like them. However, the hub/hook/screw part is prone to breakage from wind or being whacked around by a bear. I realize that they're not going to stand up to that kind of abuse, which is fine, but I would like to be able to buy replacement parts. Unfortunately, from what I've read here, PerkyPet no longer sells replacement hubs/hooks. Now I have several baffles with no way to hang them. Seems like a policy you might want to reconsider. I'd rather not put them in a landfill if they're still perfectly fine and useable.

Worthless piece By Bud

The hub on the squirrel baffle is the weak point. It breaks and now you cannot buy the replacement parts. so $17 of unusable stuff. Don't buy this as I have had three break so far. Worthless!!

Excellent Product - Excellent Service By Bird Fan

Both the product and the people behind it are excellent. (I did add a fishing line swivel above the baffle and feeder because the squirrels were spinning the baffle wildly when they would save their fall by jumping off. After a few weeks, the squirrels seem to be content to feed on the ground below the feeder! Well done WoodStream!

Q.I have a Perky-Pet #340 Baffle that the Baffle Hub broke. May I order a new hub as the rest of the baffle, hook, etc are all in good shape? Thank you, Mike

Replacement parts are not available for this baffle, however it is covered by a one year replacement policy. Please feel free to contact us directly for additional assistance.

Q.I need the plastic bracket to enable me to hang the dome on a pole.

Replacement parts are no longer available, however, the baffler is covered under a one year warranty for replacement.

Q.Can you purchase the plastic hook only? A deer has broken the the hook that goes through the dome?

We apologize as a recent business decision was made to no longer offer replacement parts due to low demand. This product is covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for further assistance.
