Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wondering worked fine once I had it at the right height and figured out hot to secure it to a 1/2" rod.
it took a bit of engineering to find a clamp that would sit underneath the dome on a 1/2" square pole/rod/shepherd's crook, but once I did that, and had it at the optimal height, the squirrels are confounded! It is kind of amusing at times to watch them try (and fail) to reach the feeders.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by birdfeederblues Didn't work for my bird feeder
This product only works on a bird feeder that sits ATOP a pole. My bird feeder hangs from an arm that is attached to the top of a pole. It was my error in that I didn't realize this prior to my purchase. Also, it doesn't work if your feeder is on top of a 4X4 post (duh!).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LR It works!
Through the years we have tried multiple solutions to squirrels eating from our bird feeders. This truly baffles them ;-) We don't mind them eating what falls on the ground. The birds are at our feeders regularly now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ooonor It works! With unintended consequences...
The ONLY problem we have with this is that while it deters squirrels, as intended, it also deters all of the chipmunks we used to have in our yard. The chippers have now abandoned us for a neighbor without a squirrel baffler. We liked this so much we bought a second one. They are easy to install, good quality, and seem like they will last.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BridgeFan It really does baffle the squirrels...
The baffler was simple to install on the shepherd's hook and works as advertised. I've watched the squirrels try to climb the pole, hang there for a while, then finally give up.
The big negative (don't know why I didn't think of this) is the ever-present bird droppings. I wish they made the baffler in a mottled black/grey/white/brown pattern! Be prepared to either live with the look of the ugly droppings or clean the baffler every day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fancypantz3000 The birds and I love this baffle, the squirrels do not!
Baffle works as intended...did the job and kept the squirrels from feeding from my upside down hanging bird suet feeder. Highly recommend! (I linked a vid of the baffle in action)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Easy deterrent
Design makes this easy to install on just about any pole. Install as high as possible; I had one about 3-1/2 feet off the ground and one high-jumping squirrel made the leap to the top of it! Raised it another 6 inches (almost touching the bird feeder) and that difference did the trick. (Your results may vary, depending on the athletic ability of your squirrels!) Also remember that snow on the ground can shorten the distance they need to jump. And also having nearby trees or bushes from which they can launch can defeat the purpose of any baffle underneath the feeder. But this is an excellent product...whenever I install a new feeder pole I always get a new baffle as well.
