Squirrel Stopper 36" x 118" high
So Far, So Good! I've only had this Pole for a few weeks but it works great. The squirrels were able to get on it but only because I had a very long feeder on it. After watching the squirrels figure out how to bounce on the baffle and then cling to the long feeder to climb up, I removed the long feeder and they are no longer able to get up. It is great fun watching the squirrels try to figure out how to get past the baffle - no progress for the little gray rats so far.

Really is squirrel proof!
I have had this since it came out several years ago. When I first put it up, it was so fun to watch the squirrels try to get to the feeders. They'd crawl up the post and into the baffle and back out again cocking their heads like "I know the seed is there, why can't I get to it!" I no longer have squirrels in my yard because they can't get to the feeders.
Each arm hold a lot of weight, I have 4 large feeders and several suet/ sugar feeders hanging from the arms.
This feeder pole still looks new after many years of harsh weather. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a 100% squirrel proof product.

I just received this and hurriedly put it up, as we had our first snowfall last night and the ground will freeze soon. This is very well made. I live in an area with lots of trees, and the auger was put to task as it had to go through roots. No problem. Took me less than1 hour from start to finish to fully install, and I was in no particular hurry. I'm impressed with the quality. Sturdy stuff. I read somewhere else that each arm can hold up to 30lbs- 15 pounds on each side. That's easy to believe. Don't have any feeders on it yet, so I can't comment on how well the baffle works. Other sites/blogs generally say it works better than most, so I hope so. Actually I will feed the squirrels on the ground, I just want to keep them away from the birds' food. Remember to place this at least 10' from trees or structures, as squirrels can jump.
