The feeder works very well. I have a running battle with squirrels and have run through several hundred pounds worth of 'anti-squirrel feeders'. This one actually works, so it is excellent value for money!

It did work, that is, for about 18 months, until the squirrels 'demolished' the feeder and and ran off with various bits, rendering the feeder useless.

RSPB customer service to the rescue, and while they could not replace a nut and plastic knob on the feeder's bottom, they gave me the number of the manufacturer, who did send me those parts. Now the feeder works perfectly, but I think a locking washer next to the nut is a good idea for the future.

Really stops the squirrels!

This feeder actually stops squirrels stealing all the peanuts! It's still amusing watching them trying to get the peanuts but failing every time, although most have learnt very quickly not to bother! The birds took a couple of days to get used to it as it looks different to other feeders, but they now happily feed without worrying about the squirrels. By Kate, on 23 Jun 2016

First one replaced by Jacobi Jayne after six months - problem with spring- feeding ports remaining closed.
The second one is useless as jackdaws are having a feast as the feeder does NOT close when they land on it.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, sorry to hear you had problems with your first feeder which was faulty and meant you needed a replacement.
The feeder is not designed to close when jackdaws (average weight 250g) land on it, it is designed for the weight of a squirrel(average 400-600g) and will close when they land on the ports thus locking the squirrels out but allowing the birds to feed. By G, on 7 Apr 2016

Product information

Outwit the squirrels! An adjustable weight-activated mechanism inside this ingenious high-quality feeder instantly closes the feeding ports when 'someone' too heavy arrives. It's brilliantly made, flexible (set it to favour smaller birds if you wish) and easy to dismantle and clean.
It holds a generous 750 ml of shelled peanuts, and the longer base area allows woodpeckers to grip and join the feast. Also suitable for suet nibbles.

  • - Measures 49 cm tall
  • - 2 year manufacturer's warranty
