Nice, but can unscrew
By J. Gray
This is a nice shield, assembled by screwing the two hooks above and below the shield into a double-sided nut. That is a problem, because if the feeder hanging from it turns in the wind, it will unscrew the hook and the whole shebang will fall to the ground. I will try Locktite on the threads of the hooks.

A great squirrel deterrant
By David Eaton
I go through 25 lbs of bird feed every 3-4 weeks in the 2 feeders hanging off my porch &, even though they are "squirrel proif" of the squirrel tries to put his weight on the perch, those crafty tree rats learned to climb up the rod holding the feeder off the railing, then hang from the top of the feeder & have a buffet off my sunflower seeds.
Simply by hanging this "shiekd" between the pole & the top of the feeder it blocked them from reaching the feeder all together - and gas the added benefit of providing some protection from the rain.

The Price is Right!
By nancy j. martin
This baffle works perfectly for me. I have also taken to a very effective squirrel deterrent with all my feeders. I purchased spinners which are used on fishing lines. I attach the spinner to either a suet cage directly, then feed a key chain ring through the end that would attach to fishing line and hang the feeder this way. It makes it impossible for the squirrel to gain any purchase on the feeder and they just give up. (there can be no large branches around for the squirrels to anchor themselves on). With all other large feeders I employ the same measures, however you attach the spinner to the ring at top of feeder, then as instructed previously attached another Key ring to hang it by.
