RSPB Bird feeder pole short hook

RSPB > Bird care > Feeding stations
    Sturdy metal hook designed for easy wrap-around fitting - in your chosen position - on our bird feeder pole. The unique design of these hooks means that they can be fitted to the feeder pole from the side, without having to slide them down from the top or take the pole apart. Simply fit the hook around the pole and it will grip tightly when the weight of a feeder is placed on it.
    Not suitable for guardians - you need the long hook for those.

    very poor hooks slip
    Very disappointed with these hooks. They slide down the pole when you take the feeders off to fill. This was bought for my 90 year old mother to make it easier for her to feed the birds, it has done the exact opposite, as she is struggling to push the hooks back up.
    I have a similar (different make) pole and hooks, and they NEVER move.

    Good idea...not so good in practice
    It's true that the weight of the feeder keeps them in place, but you need a big and heavy feeder. As the seed gets eaten and the weight reduces the hook slides to the ground. It also spins around when there's a hungry bunch of long tails fighting over fat balls. Refilling the feeder is a juggling act and as soon as you take the feeder off the hook it slides down the pole. I've tried bending the coil of the hook to tighten the grip but there's no give. The hooks are a different brand to the RSPB pole so I do wonder if they're designed to be used together as they seem too big for the pole.

    Just the job
    After a couple of failed attempts at securing these hooks to my pole and spilling a load of seed on my lawn, I got there in the end and they've held fast ever since. Just the job for a couple of extra feeders for my ever-growing number of visiting goldfinches.
