Q:How to set it up

Answer This Question

A:  There are 2 holes through the back. I used 3 inch screws and mounted to to a tree. You can take out the clear viewing piece so you have full access to the screw holes and then slide it right back in. Very easy to do.

    A:  It is already put together you just have to hang it up.

      A:  2 long screws and it's done. Fairly heavy so predrill the holes. You just remove the window to access the holes.

        A:  Please contact the manufacturer for questions about replacement or missing parts. Information from manufacturer website: Toll Free in USA: 1-866-728-5273 Phone: (+1)281-570-6450 Fax: (+1)281-661-1167 Email:inquiry@newtechwood.com 19111 Walden Forest Dr. Suite B Humble, TX 77346, USA In the future you may want to try propping the lid open slightly by either overfilling the feeder or by placing some feed on the inside of the rear hinge to hold the lid open slightly to help squirrels to get the idea that they can open the lid to get to the food inside. Not all squirrels are bright. I had some squirrels try to chew through the edge of the lid to access the food inside until they learned how to open the lid possibly by watching other squirrels. Might have to repeat this each year with each new generation of squirrels. Hope that this is helpful.

        A:  In the past, I have used 4x6 plexiglass picture frame.

        by|Jul 27, 2021

          A:  Likely not - but your local hardware store can easily cut you a new one from their stock of Plexiglas. I have the same problem - the lid is so heavy that the squirrels can't lift it, so they have chewed up the plexiglass to get at the feed.

          I love it. The squirrels love it and have no trouble lifting the lid. There is a large platform (I removed the corn cob screw, it can injure the squirrels when there is no corn on it). The squirrels cannot chew the wood, so it should last a while. It is very sturdy. This is the best feeder I have had after feeding squirrels over twenty years. Speedy service and problem free shipping. Absolutely no negatives. Also try to give them clean water.

          Have had this squirrel feeder up for over a month now, and it is very poorly designed/engineered. 1. The perch/platform is too short for any squirrel, if the cob screw is used. If you put a cob on the screw, the squirrels start sitting on the cob and ruin it/break it off, as there is no room for them on the platform with the cob in place. 2. The lid is so heavy that the squirrels have a hard time lifting it to get at the feed - so they either push up the thin plexi front, dumping the entire contents, if you don't glue in the plexi, or if you do glue in the plexi, they chew off the top third of the thin poor quality plexi, to access the feed without lifting the lid. 3. This is not water-tight by any means. Any heavy rain, and the contents get soaked and have to be tossed. Water either leaks in through the hinge, or around the poorly fitted plexi, or through the front where the squirrels chew down the plexi to get at the feed.

          Attractive materials. Well liked by squirrels
          I've gone the route of intentionally feeding the squirrels instead of trying gadgets to stop them from getting to bird feeders...they'll always find a way. The feeder is a simple design using composite decking material that will obviously hold up well outdoors. It can hold a large amount of your feed of choice. There is a small ledge that provides ample space for a squirrel to perch and lift off the lid in order to eat. The clear acrylic front allows you to easily seed from a distance when refilling is necessary. There is also an exposed screw on the shelf that can hold a dried corn cob if desired.

          Great Size, Minimal Work to Install!
          Easy to install, comes ready for any post out of the box. This squirrel feeder is compact, stylish, and ready to mount up on any tree or post of your choosing. I chose to use the two included long screws and mount on a tree in my front yard. The clear front glass gives a clear view of the food remaining, as well as a nice contrast to the feeder. The base also includes a screw to add a whole dried corn. I have the feeder installed, just waiting on food to be delivered to fill up. My wife loves the color and look of the feeder.

          Great Squirrel Feeder
          This squirrel feeder is very simplistic and very easy to use! Of note, my feeder was the color grey rather than the wood/brown color in the picture. Regardless, I still like the color and it blends nicely in nature, despite the fact that I mounted mine to a 2x4 on my woodpile rack. That being said, "assembly" was super easy and consisted of finding a spot and using the two screws provided to attach the feeder to a post/tree using the pre-drilled holes. After that, just use some animal feed (when in doubt, a good bird seed will do the trick) and fill it up! The front of the feeder has a screw sticking up for a dry ear of corn for squirrels to munch on. It only took a few days for the squirrels to find the feeder and now I am constantly refilling it! It is very amusing to watch the squirrels lift up the top and grab some food. I've even noticed them scooping it out so it falls on the ground for them to eat. My dog enjoys watching all the new squirrel activity in our backyard :)

          Nice feeder
          The New Techwood Nature's Friend recycled composite squirrel feeder is nicely made. I was surprised at how heavy this thing is. It does come with the fasteners to mount it somewhere. The lid can be opened up for easy access to clean it out and the front piece can be removed as well. This could easily be used as a bird house as well if you wanted to by just replacing the front piece with a piece that has a hole in it.

          Good Quality Squirrel Feeder
          This squirrel feeder is well made to last for many years and is held together with exterior grade screws versus with nails or staples. The feeding platform holds an ear of corn by pressing or twisting a dried ear of corn onto the screw at the end of the platform. A snack box with a hinged lid is part of the squirrel feeder and is used for storing food for squirrels to snack on by opening the lid. A cleat on the top rear support limits how far the snack box lid will open which forces the lid to close automatically each time it is opened. A clear plastic sheet slides in and out of groves in the front of the snack box for easy cleaning and to provide a visual indication of how much food remains in the snack box. The snack box can be filled with food that squirrels prefer such as cracked corn, various bird seeds, and various nuts. I filled the snack box with a bagged squirrel feed mix which contains a mixture of cracked corn, sun flower seeds, and peanuts. A stainless steel piano hinge attaches the lid to the snack box. The UltraShield technology product from NewTechWood is used instead of standard wood for the construction of this squirrel feeder. This is the same dense composite material that is used for exterior decking and other exterior projects that is impervious to mold and insects and does not require painting or staining for the life of the material. Two #6 x 2" long exterior grade sheet metal screws are included to mount the squirrel feeder using two pre-drilled holes in the rear support.

          The lid doesn’t open all the way and it heavy. Makes it hard for squirrels to get into.

          We love to feed the squirrels and this feeder seems sturdy enough to handle the multitudes. Feeding them behind our property keeps them away from our house. The feeder was easy to set up with the included screws. Just perfect.
