Truly squirrel proof! Openings in the base are closed off by the weight of a squirrel. Adjustable weight settings also allow you to exclude nuisance birds, for example, grackles, starlings, doves, etc.
Remember it's the squirrel's weight that triggers the closing mechanism. If a squirrel can reach over from a nearby foothold and avoid placing weight on the feeder, then the squirrel will have access to the seed ports! Allow for at least 18 inches of clearance around the feeder. This will force the squirrel to climb or jump onto the feeder, thus triggering the closing mechanism.
In addition to suspending the feeder by its wire hanger from a hook or tree branch, you can also use the Pole Adapter Kit for a Squirrel Buster Plus ▶
, which allows the base of the feeder to be mounted on top of a 1" pole.
A weather guard ▶
made specifically for this feeder is also available.
