Review RateBlue its top!
Don't purchase this bird feeder. Poor design. The entire feeder is supported by the spring-loaded top. Spring and cable failed rendering the feeder useless.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePoor design , needs re-engineering
I purchased a 2lb Squirrel be gone feeder and on the first day the squirrels worked it over and the top cap portion which is riveted through the thin plastic inner walls broke out as they indulged on the bird seed. I think you need a different way to attach the cable through that is adjustable or fixable because once it is off the rivets won't fit through those holes again. Pretty disappointed with this oneResponse From WoodstreambrandsRachel : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNeed instructions
We bought this a year ago, and just put it out for the first time with food for the birds. A squirrel knocked it down (it is just over 4' from the ground). Not sure if the attack came from the ground or above. The top came off, the springs are not connected, is there instructions on how to put it back together to try again?
Review RateSave your money
I have two of these and both are less than a year old and are broken. One is broken on the top where the top comes off and both springs are so extended they are useless. I think the squirrels hand off and eventually stretch the springs.Response From WoodstreambrandsBrandon : Consumer Relations Representative
Its best to place the feeders in hard to reach areas for squirrels to reach. This product is backed by our 1 year replacement policy. Please give us a call at 855-737-5973 for squirrel tips and replacements.
Update! Have had this feeder up for over a week and the squirrels were mad when they couldn’t get to the food. They have figured out how to get some but it definitely makes their feeding frenzies so much less! I don’t mind if they have a bit but not the entire feeder full in a day! This feeder has made them come and go because they get tired of trying. I have not had to refill it since I put it up over a week ago! So happy with it and so are the birds! I also have a suet feeder that the squirrels are eating instead.
Review RateWe shall see
Giving it a three star ratings will go up or down accordingly. Just bought this on Black Friday weekend. We shall see I’ll keep you all posted. The squirrels are smart and always hungry!!!

Review RateVery poor engineering and construction
This is not a good choice or value. The cross bar that holds the strap to hang the feeder easily comes out of the clear plastic and the feeder falls to the ground and breaks the clear part. There is no means of retaining the cross bar into the feeder. There should be screws on both ends. Very poor engineering.Response From WoodstreambrandsRachel : Consumer Relations Representative
Oh no, we are so sorry to hear about this experience! Your feedback will be shared with the Product Manager for further review.

Review RateBuzz off rats!
Love this one. Tell your rats to buzz off with this feeder. Ours has lasted well over 10 years. It probably needs new springs because this past year the younger rats were able to get to it. We love ours and so do the finches.
Review RateFixing a Design Weakness in the Squirell-Be-Gone Feeder
This bird feeder is beautifully made and finished, but is has a flaw that squirrels can exploit. The problem is the base which extends beyond the metal cage at the bottom. It makes the feeder stable while you refill it, so it is valuable to have it, but squirrels quickly learn to put their weight on it and not on the cage, so the cage covers do not slide down to cover the seed ports. You can fix this problem by crafting a platform that extends about 4" on each side, attached to the bottom of the cage out of something like a sheet of rigid plastic or a 1/2 inch wire mesh. The must squirrels stand on it closing the ports, but they can no longer reach the base plate.
