I like the fact that it feeds out only one side so I can face it to my window. We also like the look very much, and function is good too. The down sides of the squirrel-proof mechanism are twofold. I pole-mounted my feeder as I have done in the past with the old feeder I replaced. Squirrels were sitting on the feeder trying to get at the seeds even though the hood came down as expected when the squirrel put his weight on the perch. There is a thin slot left where you can still see seed when the hood is down and the squirrel was trying to get at that seed with his nose and tongue. So, while the mechanism kept the squirrel from getting large quantities of seed, it did not discourage him from trying. So I ended up putting my big 3' diameter home-made apron on the pole below the feeder to keep the squirrels away and give the birds a chance at the feed. Now comes concern #2. My old basic wood bird feeder was enjoyed by Juncos in large number here in MN. In contrast it seems that the Juncos do not like to stand on the cold metal perch. The only time I've seen Juncos so far is when I had spilled seed over on the apron and they could sit down in the feed and eat it the way they used to in my old feeder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost sqirrel proof, but there is no such thing This feeder holds the most amount of feed of any squirrel proof bird feeder that I've seen and I own quite a few. This is the best one at being squirrel proof that I've found. . The only slight negative is that there is a tiny hotizontal gap between the bottom front ot the storage bin and the closed hopper shield. Squirrels will figure that one out, so far they haven't. To totally squirrel proof any pole feeder, put a six inch, six foot piece of stove pipe over the pole. They can't climb the stove pipe. Now if I could only find a feeder that is raccoon proof. Those rascals will pick a feeder up, throw it to the ground and then tear it apart..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very squirrel proof The space between the squirrel proof seed cover and the front of the feeder is wide enough for a squirrel to get to the seed. In order to keep the squirrels from getting to the seed I installed a piece of thin plastic to the seed cover to close this gap. Also, the top that covers the filling hole of the feeder is easily opened by squirrels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bird feeder, and squirrels hate it The squirrel-be-gone bird feeder ll is a good quality unit. Since it hangs from a single small cable, it is a bit unbalanced because of the adjustable weight mechanism for the automatic door. Would be a better design to have a cable attached to both sides that hang the unit from the center.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product does what it claims with drawbacks I find the product has some drawbacks. First I do not like the cable hanging system. It lets the feeder swing. I also find the space on the sides of the moving lever allows food to get stuck and causes the cover to be stuck in the closed position. The cover or lid is also a bit small for adding up to 12 lbs of food. The construction is mostly of Plexi glass with a metal frame. Am I unhappy? not really, just my preferences were more towards the older model compared to this one, I find no other product on the market to compete with this one that has the features or capacity.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Squirrel-Proof My squirrels loved this feeder. Althought it was hanging 15' below the tree limb on chain, they were able to leap onto the roof and pry off the lid. The result was a feeder hanging off center with squirrels digging into the hopper for a very tasty meal. I have drilled holes in the roof and lid in order to secure the lid with wire. It has been 24 hours, and it appears that the squirrels may have been stymied by this kluge fix. I like the capacity and look of the feeder, but was extremely disappointed that those pesky rodents were able to defeat the design. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
