I didn't use it. It didn't fit the pole I have. However, the metal adapter I got from Wild Birds Unlimited for my previous feeder did fit my new Droll Yankee feeder so we're all good.
Hi Judith, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Threaded Pole Adapter for Pole Mounting. We are sorry to see your overall disappointment with this product, although you never used it. The Threaded Pole Adapter (ADPT) allows you to securely position a threaded base feeder on top of a 1” diameter pole. So, if you tried to use this on a different sized pole, that is probably why it did not work for you. Please let us know if you have any other questions, comments or concerns. You can call our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164. Thank you for flying with our flock!
We love our bird feeder and have really enjoyed having it the past year. However, recently the feeder fell off it's pole and when we inspected to find out what had happened we discovered the threaded pole adapter had broke in half. The 1" threaded part was still threaded into the base of the bird feeder, but the portion below that had snapped off, so we are having to order a new part. Other than that the feeder has been great and we do enjoy using the pole verses hanging the feeder from a tree.
