Placement to deter squirrels: The key to keeping a feeder successfully squirrel-proofed is the placement. Place a bird feeder 4 feet from the ground and 8 feet from anything a squirrel can jump from. When hanging from a pole by a hook, it is recommended that the hook have at least a 16” distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole or having a caged feeder will also help to ensure squirrel-proof success.
Birds That Use This Feeder
Type Of Feed
So far the birds have not been willing or are unable to make it through the mesh to get to the suet. Chickadees and tufted titmice go round and round the outside, looking for a way in, but then ultimately fly off to "easier" feeders. I thought this would be great since the squirrels take care of the suet in my other regular suet feeders in a matter of hours, but with this one, if even the birds can't get in, what's the point? I may have to cut every other crossbar off the mesh or something, otherwise this thing is going in the trash because I doubt they'd let me return it to the store after being un"used". Too bad too, because it wasn't cheap.

The small diameter stud and cast nut are a very poor mounting combination. Once a squirrel finds a way to jump onto the cage it’s stripped and on the ground. Needs redesigned with larger stud or another mount mechanism that can handle the stress.

No squirrels or birds have gotten to the suet. Either the birds at my house are too big to enter or too scared to enter The suet is untouched after 2 weeks, big cost savings. I hope some brave small birds stop by soon and get some suet.

This is such a great feeder. My squirrels are very smart, but this feeder keeps them away and the birds love it. I love the suet because it also does not leave any mess, further dissuading the squirrels! Awesome!!
Looks good on paper. Can't figure out how to open the darn thind
Hi Brianne, Thank you for your review of the Squirrel-X Double Suet Caged Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder. We are sorry you are having trouble opening the feeder. We would be happy to help you with this so you can get back to feeding the birds! You will want to grab a hold of the ring top and twist, counterclockwise, until that piece detaches. You can then lift the roof off and access the suet holders. If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 or at email@example.com, and any of our Customer Service Representatives would be happy to assist you. Thank you and Happy Birding!
