Review RateFlawed design
Flawed design. Squirrels love it :( Even on the lightest spring setting, it would not slide down to close the food. When I just used 1 spring (not recommended), the sleeve would close the food openings, BUT when the sleeve slides down, it then allows the squirrel to lift the lid off the top and feast away. It took them less than a an hour to get into the food :( I'm returning this tomorrow :(Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this recent experience with this feeder. We are sorry to learn that the squirrels were able to get around the weight activated mechanism so quickly. If the cage is not closing off the ports when the squirrels add their weight to the feeder, we recommend testing the feeder to ensure that the wire cage moves freely and is not becoming snagged. We are glad to hear that you are still able to take advantage of the 30 day return policy.
My question is...how do you clean the very bottom where the seeds get stuck between the plastic and metal base? I'm concerned that this is where mold will grow.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
We recommend cleaning this feeder with a long scrub brush and a mild soap and water solution. If seed has begun to clump, soaking the feeder in warm water may help to break it up.
Review RateDon't waste your money.
It took the squirrels 2 days to defeat this system. I must have lightweight squirrels because even set for the weight the cage does not close. The squirrels have removed the metal guards on the feeding ports and have started chewing the plastic. I'd like to return this but my 30 days are past. What a waste, I'm going back to my old style Droll feeder with a large cage over it.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this recent experience. We're sorry to learn that the squirrels damaged your feeder in this manner. Our feeders are backed by a one year replacement policy. Please feel free to reach out to us at 1-855-737-5973 for additional assistance.
Review Ratequality could be better
I bought 2 of these I paid about $35.00 Canadian each. One of the feeders worked well until the squirrels figured out how to take the lid off, from there they chewed the plastic body, it was destroyed. The 2nd one was a no starter, the spring was much too strong and with the squirrels on it, it didn't drop down. I set the feeder on all of the settings, it made no difference. That one is in my garage, somewhere. These feeders are not well made and you would be better spending more money on a better product. I have bought another Perky Pet feeder that works really well, so far it has kept the squirrels at bay.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional assistance with the feeders.
Review RateKept the Squirrels Out Until Chewed Through
This feeder worked for me for several years .... attracted lots of birds. The squirrels could hang on it, but the spring worked fine and they coukdn't empty the feeder. Until this year when one resourceful squirrel chewed through the now brittle plastic. I will probably replace it with the same one...
Overall for the price, I have enjoyed this feeder. When adjusted, the squirrels move on. Birds tend to use it without wasting the seed. I just bought my third. My only disappointment is as follows; the plastic inner tube becomes brittle over time and cracks. I am in Northern Virginia so it is not exposed to too cold a winter season. Second, the bottom tends to drop out. I solved this by drilling through the base and adding two cotter pins. This allows me to open it if need be but holds the unit together. I may suggest some stronger connection at the base. Otherwise, I will keep buying them on the birds recommendation.
Birds don’t want to feed from itResponse From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for this feedback. We are sorry to learn that the birds have not yet taken to the feeder. They can be picky eaters and may take time to become accustomed to a new feeder in their environment. To help encourage them to try the feeder, we recommend temporarily removing established feeders. Please reach out to us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
Review RateIt's an ok feeder....
I just bought one and the squirrels are having a feast. I've set it on the lightest weight setting and they still are eating it. I even set it so it's not in a hole and they are still eating it. Maybe if you use a lighter spring action, the feeder might work.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePretty goodPretty good at keeping them out! Hang from a tree not a porch hook. Be aware...sneaky squirrels or something working on getting the top off :o(. They had previously stretched the spring for the top and Perky Pet was so great, they replaced it for me. Thanks Perky Pet!
