Should have purchased the anti-squirrel bird feeder a long time ago

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rezzim Like it so far
I've only had this for a few days now, so I can't comment on the durability of the product long term.
For the price, it's really great. I had a bird feeder hanging from the tree, which was causing the squirrels to jump onto the feeder and destroy it. So far, the birds seem to like it. I have the pickiest wild birds who will sit on my fence and stare at the kitchen window or come to the front of the house and sit in the window and chirp at me because they either a) don't have enough food, or b) don't like the feeder. No exaggeration there - I know because the second I put their approved brand of feed in there and make sure the feeder is stocked they come, eat, and leave. I haven't had any problems (yet) with squirrels shimmying up the pole and shaking the feeder (4 bird feeders later, I might add - now that the Board of Bird Directors has approved). Took all of about 10 minutes to dig, mount, and assemble fully into the ground.
The hook is very small, so expect your feeder to probably fall off in the wind. I solved that problem by taking some thick wire and wrapping it around the hook and the feeder to keep it in place. It's not pretty, but the picky princes / princesses don't seem to mind. Good thing is it's tall enough to be up off the ground, but not tall enough to raise scrutiny by my neighbors when they see 5,000 birds descending upon my backyard each day.

It's withstood some strong winds, squirrels climbing on it every day and at the same time given plenty of joy to my three-year-old boy and the rest of my family

I have Perky-Pet Deluxe Chalet Bird Feeder mounted on top, sitting out of squirrel jump range. It wobbles a little but otherwise pretty stable. Keep in mind that this is made of steel (which is why it's fairly inexpensive), painted on the outside, but only a matter of time before steel rusts - the bottom touching the ground and the tips of the sections. Ground sleeve included so you don't scrape the paint during install.

Good Product, I liked the how tall this elevates the feeders. We have had problems with Deer knocking the feeders over in the past.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Not very good for the average feeder!
Not sturdy or tall enough. Does not stay firmly in ground with collar provided

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by katya great cheap bird pole
I bought this pole to add height to another similar bird house pole; and it worked beautifully. It is easy to assemble and very sturdy.

The idea is very good but the pole is too short, the top "hanger" bracket to hang a feeder is not secure for winds and the bottom bracket to anchor the pole is way too small
