Rated 5 out of 5 by rbrtchn Good Idea
The extra large horizontal suet feeder is a good idea. No need to put a new suet cake in every day. Quality of the feeder is excellent. Woodpeckers found it within an hour of putting it up. Unfortunately, the squirrels also find it convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by reinjen Nice suet feeder
Grackles,starlings and cowbirds were decimating my suet and crowding out my downies so I ordered this feeder. I hung this where the old one had been and the little woodpeckers were feeding within minutes : )
The thugs are leaving the suet alone, the suet stays dry and shady and because it holds two full sized cakes I won't be refilling often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Birddragon A latch might help
This feeder is excellent for discouraging the hoards of Grackles, Starliings and Blue Jays that were sucking my side-by-side type of feeder dry, but it is very difficult to "raccoon-proof."
A latch securing the roof would eliminate the need for multiple mini-bungee cords...and Gorilla tape...and a metal strap. I swear these raccoons have a tool box!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DannoB Works great but...
Maybe the woodpeckers in my neighborhood are just plain lazy but this feeder basically got no action (other than from a very ambitious squirrel) until I attached eyelets and dowels to the bottom rails to serve as upside-down perches. Within minutes after doing this I had a couple of downy woodpeckers feeding from it.
