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, 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).

Review RateRedesigned hook a huge improvement!
My main complaint about my previous Bafflers is that the two-piece plastic hook would unscrew from time to time due to rotation from the wind. I had several bird feeders damaged from the ~12ft fall to ground level. The last 2 falls also damaged 2 Bafflers. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my shipment of 3 new Bafflers to see that the hook was now a one piece metal hook! Huge improvement; goodbye to falling bird feeders!
Review RateDefinitely Recommended
This squirrel baffle I have employed successfully since 2017, and right upto the present day. This is my Amazon review which I share here: Employed over a suspended feeder, it is effective, very effective...including as a means of some protection from the rain. But some find its tipping function leaves it prey to the wind and, so - to those people - it is unsatisfactory. For those people, then, my utterly successful remedy was to reverse the fitting in the dome...turn the whole hooks' apparatus upside down, then to GENTLY insert the wide part into the domes' aperture. This can be safely done, and pushed right home, giving a firm fit. Thus, it no longer tips and the wind is no longer a problem, it helps protect from the rain, and the squirrels are incapable of getting past it, they just slide off it. Those very few that really try, FAIL, for the whole feeder and baffle/ dome sway to one side and the squirrel topples off immediately. That is my remedy for those people who, unlike myself, do not find it satisfactory. Myself, as I stated at the beginning, know it to be very effective indeed in its regular assembly, so definitely recommended.
Review RatePerfectly designed.
This squirrel baffle is the best on the market. Very sturdy, and very easy to use. The new design of the hooks is much more durable. I like the clear baffle so the birds can see the seed in the feeder and keep an eye out for hawks. It keeps my seed dry and clean. Top notch!
This product is priced right and a great value.
Review RateDon’t waste your money! Chewed up in less than 3 days.
Don’t waste your money! I bought two of these and used them as pole mount. Within less than 3 days both were on the ground because the squirrels had chewed through the plastic part that is screwed onto the pole to hold the “dome” part. They plastic is thin and should have been designed better. I should have went with the metal Squirrel X ones.Response From WoodstreambrandsBrandon : Consumer Relations Representative
I am sorry to hear that! The feeders make it harder for squirrels to get access to the food, it does not stop them completely. We do have a 1 year repalcement policy, if the trap was purchased within the past year please give us a call at 855-737-5973 to have a replacement sent out!
Review RateVERY DISSAPPOINTED CUSTOMER
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.
Review RateI would not purchase this hanger as is -- should be a simple task to redesign a better hanging system.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.
Review RateBuyer Beware!!!
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.Response From WoodstreambrandsRachel : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePole mounted Squirrel baffle - warranty
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.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratescrew company and plastic company need better colaboration
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.Response From WoodstreambrandsRachel : Consumer Relations Representative
