Product Overview

The Perky-Pet 16 in Transparent Squirrel Baffler can be hung or pole mounted. When hanging the baffler, it blocks squirrels from above. The included hooks have the strength to hold up to 12 lb. The top hook attaches the baffler to a tree limb or other hanging location, while the bird feeder hangs from the second hook located underneath the baffler. Most squirrels will descend the wire to the baffler and give up. A more persistent squirrel may put its weight on the baffler in efforts to access the bird feeder below, but after climbing onto the baffler, it will quickly tilt, sending the squirrel down to the ground (startled maybe, but uninjured). The hanging baffler has the added benefit of partially protecting bird seed from rain and tree debris.

Hard to describe, but I flip the hooks and mounts around so they do not come apart and hold them permanently in place with a bit of super glue. I then spray paint the inside of the baffle to give it a solid color which ends up looking really nice while providing shade, I went with a metallic blue on the last one which gives it a nice shimmery effect when viewed closer.

I need about 10 more! Finally found something the raccoons can’t get past. So far.

Works like a charm
I installed the Squirrel Baffler to hang above the birdfeeder and trimmed any branches that a squirrel could use to access the feeder and watched as squirrels were indeed baffled and unable to access the feeder. I also put some squirrel sweet corn logs on a couple of trees to keep them occupied. I even made a funny little video, but not sure I’m able to post it here.

    This would not work on our bird feeder. I returned it and bought some granular stuff that is supposed to smell bad. It doesn’t work either.

    The item as is definitely will not "squirrel proof" a bird feeder, but with some modifications will actually work ~90% of the time and 100% if the squirrels are small. This was one of my Covid-19 projects while following the "stay-at-home" rules in NY. Besides bird seed, this was the only thing I purchased since I had some old Shepard hooks in the garage and additional hardware needed. First attempt failed since I had no idea how high they could jump and how athletic/acrobatic could be. Believe it or not, they actually chewed away the plastic inside piece that holds the hooks! Anyway, the solution was to remove the curved hooks from ~4 ft high dual Shepard's hook, then attached an additional smaller/thinner one to gain enough height and hang the feeder. Since they can actually squeeze through the small hole in the middle, I screwed a piece of sheet metal to close the opening in the middle and made a small hole for it to slide through the top hook. Then used a small C-clamp so they can't easily get on top of it, and even if they do, it spins around so generally they can't get a foot (claw) hold. Finally I purchased another one since the bigger squirrels could easily defeat it, and installed the extra one above the first hood, also with sheet metal over the large hole and mounts to make it unstable. Finally this keeps all but one of the largest and most aggressive of the beasts off of the feeder, but we have an understanding and he usually jumps off with a little verbal convincing or throwing a golf ball:-) Maybe I should post a video since this may be interesting to others? Would have given 5 stars if I didn't need two of them and engineering skills to make it work. My recommendation would be to increase the diameter to ~19 inches which should be able to defeat even the largest squirrels.

    GOOD Product
    I have two of these that have been up for years in the Colorado weather. I use a plant hook from the tree to a short chain for one and the other hangs from a hook on a tree limb to the baffle. I then hang the feeder to the inside hook of the baffle. Works fine for me.

      It kinda of works, You have to remember Squirrels are smart, and if they want something they will figure out a way. Ours actually hung from from the branch behind the Guard/Baffle like a gymnast and than grabbed the chain the suet cake was hanging from and avoided the baffle all together, while other Squirrels were not so bright and it worked great. So it is a 50/50. Now we ended up using the hot pepper suet cakes with the Guard/Baffle and we found total success and we have it on a shepard hook instead of the tree now. So I would say give it a try it is worth the money.

      Poor design
      This item is not secure, the baffle moves in the wind. When the temperature drops it becomes brittle plastic and crack. Try and fine one made out of metal. It did not even last one month in Northeast Ohio .

        We are sorry to hear that this product did not work for you! When the baffler is hooked from above, squirrels can't cling to the surface of it, causing them to slide off and give up. A more persistent squirrel may put its weight on the baffler in efforts to access the bird feeder below, but after climbing onto the baffler, it will quickly tilt, sending the squirrel down to the ground. Alternatively, when placed on bird feeder poles from underneath, this baffler is designed to prevent squirrels from gaining access to the feeder above them. If you find that you still not 100% satisfied, it is nice to know that you may return it within 30 days of the purchase date. Feel free to contact us at 1-855-737-5973 for more information!
