Have only ever once (in 5 years) seen a squirrel trying to get into this - hanging down by his back legs to reach past the sliding cover and get to the feed hole - he left with a tap on the window (we are out in the country so have other ways of staving off squirrel attacks, but not suited to built up areas). To avoid water running down the wire through the cover to wet the seed, slide a piece of kitchen foil through the loop just above where the central column joins the suspension wire and shape it to the top of the sliding cover - 100% fix. There are web sites explaining how to make home-made versions of this with plastic bottles (good instructive occupation for children with parent), but squirrels will gnaw at plastic, so this metal-sleeved product is pretty good and has served very well for 5 years now. Must be suspended well away from any adjacent perch points for a squirel to reach across to the feed hole and the bird perches must be at least 1.2 or even 1.5 metres above ground to avoid squirrels jumping up. Not 5 star as (a) needs self-mod for keeping dry, (b) positioning limitations and (c) risk that it could succumb to really persistent and constant squirrel attack hanging from above by back legs.

I acquired one of these feeders last week and hung it a couple of days ago. On the same day, a squirrel came down the wire, was frustrated for a time and then found, presumably accidentally, that if it hung from the perch bars, the stainless steel column was released and it could get at the seed. A few minutes ago I found it at the feeder, taking its fill - it had obviously learnt what to do. This is NOT squirrel-proof and should not be advertised as such - to make it squirrel proof would require the stainless steel collar to extend beyond the perch bars or for the perch bars to be spring loaded and pushed down by the collar. VERY DISAPPOINTING - don't waste your money on this one.

If I could give this 10 stars I would! You hang this feeder from a tree branch or bird table: it needs to be a certain distance from the ground and from other surfaces (to prevent the squirrel from jumping up or across to it). The metal sleeve slides down over the feeder when the squirrel tries to come down from above it to feed (which is why the feeder has to be positioned right). Hard to describe on paper, but it works superbly in practice. Follow the instructions that come with this and you will never be bothered by squirrels again - guaranteed. The best squirrel proof feeder I've ever tried, and I've had it for many months now. No squirrel has managed to defeat it and the birds love it. The peanut version is just as good as well.

LATER ADDITION TO REVIEW: It is now February 2010 and STILL no squirrel has managed to break into these feeders! I have 6 of them (feeders, not squirrels...Squirrels don't bother coming into the garden much anymore because there's no FOOD for them). But you do have to make sure the feeders are positioned properly and I have noticed that in wet and stormy weather they can get wet inside. But I wouldn't use any other feeder now :-)

My dad and mum moved into a new house and my dad has always loved leaving food out for the birds. Unfortunately, their new house was frequently visited by 4 squirrels and I was subjected to his rants and raves about how terrible these bird-food stealers were. The moans went on and on.

More out of fun than expectation, I got him this 'squirrel proof' bird feeder 10 months ago for his birthday. I expected it to work for a week or two, but 10 months later the squirrels still haven't managed to beat it. We've had great fun watching their efforts.

My dad now leaves out food specifically for the squirrels! I suppose he'll start to moan when the birds start stealing it!!

It's extremely satisfying to watch this bird feeder in action. The birds love it, and the squirrels have tried many times to get the seeds, but can't. They've tried hauling it up - can't because of the plastic tube. Leaping onto it - nowhere to hang on to. Shaking the branch - a few seeds fall out, but not enough. Nibbling through the wire doesn't work either - it's too tough. After a few days they've completely given up on it and just sulk underneath it, waiting for the birds to let a few seeds fall. And we've hung a fat ball from the bottom too, to add insult to injury.

Whilst this feeder is effective at deterring squirrels, Its completely useless as a bird feeder for the simple reason that it doesn't keep rain out of the feeder tube. This results in a claggy mess that the birds cant eat and is very unpleasant to clean out.

By trial & error, I have found the most effective way of stopping squirrels is by having a post feeder with the Gardman Universal Squirrel Baffle fitted. As long as the post is far enough away from something they can launch from, it is impossible for the little b*ggers to get onto the feeder itself.

This is a clever product and I bought 4 of them. As other reviewers stated, they do let the rain in and the seed gets wet BUT the worst thing is that a determined squirrel (is there any other kind?) can grab hold of the bird perch and let the steel cover slide up again. I abandoned them all.
