Here is what I like about the Squirrel Stopper:


  • As the name implies, the Squirrel Stopper is the best pre-made squirrel proof bird feeder pole around. To accomplish the almost impossible feat of stopping squirrels, a spring-loaded baffle is attached to the pole. This means that it can move up, down, and side to side. Squirrels can’t get past the baffle!


Here is exactly how the baffle works.


Just imagine a squirrel trying to climb up the pole. It’s impossible!


  • The pole can hold up to 8 bird feeders (or hanging plants) from the upper cross tubes. Even though there are 8 hooks, in my opinion, you can fit four bird feeders comfortably on the ends of each of the cross tubes. If you have small or skinny tube feeders, then you can probably hang a few more on the inside hooks. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HANGING HEAVY HOPPER STYLE BIRD FEEDERS FROM THE POLE or you risk having the pole lean over time.

  • The installation of this bird feeder pole was relatively simple and straightforward. It took me about half an hour from opening the box to having the Squirrel Stopper installed and in the ground. The instructions that come in the box are not great, but luckily building this pole is not rocket science. Thankfully, no tools are required; everything you need comes in the box.

  • Screwing the pole in the ground was surprisingly easy. There is an auger that attaches to the bottom of the pole, and then you use one of the cross tubes to screw it down into the ground. It took less than a minute to get the pole almost two feet underground!


  • It looks classy! I used to use cheap shepherds hooks to hang my feeders and it looked bad. The Squirrel Stopper pole will instantly make your backyard look like you have a legitimate bird feeding station.


  • The construction of the Squirrel Stopper is sturdy. The pole is made of 16 gauge steel and includes a black powder coat finish. The vertical pole has a diameter of 2″. The horizontal cross tubes at the top have a diameter of 1″.


Before I purchased my Squirrel Stopper, I noticed some users complained that it would rust over time. I never had this issue. But rust could be prevented by spraying on some sort of preventer like Rust-Oleum (Clear) periodically.


*If you film or take a picture of a squirrel or raccoon climbing this pole, send me the proof and I will refund your money immediately. The squirrel must have climbed the pole, and not jumped from a nearby tree. 🙂

    I loved the look of this pole, but was concerned a bit at the high cost. After looking all over the place I finally decided to try this. I followed the instructions, including keeping it 10’ from things squirrels could jump from.

    Set up could not have been easier. The auger set the pole quickly and securely. And did I mention quickly? Less than 2 minutes and it was in the ground. The rest went together easily and was very well made. Worth the cost. Not cheap tin.

    I had doubts that the baffle would work. But I set it up and started watching. After two weeks and a lot of attempts from our gang of 6 squirrels, I have not seen one get to the feeders. We have since added two more feeders, including a suet feeder, with no intrusions from the gang.

    The squirrels now sit on the ground and wait for the mistakes from above. They probe this often but have not figured it out. They also are now eating the corn that is out there for them. My expensive bird food is not disappearing every other day and we are getting way more birds without a squirrel feeding most of the day.

    I could not be happier with this pole and baffle. So much so that I am ordering a second one shortly for the front yard.

    Thanks for a great product

    If you’re looking for a pole that you will have forever, rather than those you’ll need to replace every few years, this is the one! It was simple to put together and install, and it holds multiple feeders without a problem. We have four on it now, filled to the brim, and we have room to add four more. It looks great, it’s sturdy, and we are thrilled with our purchase. Thanks for the great recommendation!

    This is a fantastic product, and I recommend it highly–definitely worth the money I invested in it. It was straightforward to put together and is very sturdy in the ground. It is practical (I hang four feeders from it) and elegant. I’ve had it about a month, and so far the squirrels have not found a way past the baffle. They regularly climb the pole to the bottom of the baffle but give up their attempts pretty quickly.

    The best product for birds that I have ever had. Very easy to put together. It is fun to watch the squirrels try to get in the bird feeder.

  5. Alan Mark Grochal (verified owner)

    This product was terrific. We have extremely smart squirrels in our neighborhood and they were completely befuddled by this product. One tried climbing the pole only to realize that it was hopeless and sulked away. Others crawl by, look and move on. I am very pleased.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this feeder pole. I bought this to replace an older feeder pole set where the arms would shift in the wind and my feeders would get all tangled up. In windy South Dakota this can be a problem! I love that the arms are fixed and there are multiple places to hand my feeders. I haven’t seen a squirrel try to climb the pole, they all stay at the bottom and eat the left over that falls to the ground, yay! I loved this set up so much that I bought a second one for the other side of my house. Highly recommend!

    We lost a beautiful oak tree which housed my feeders – I struggled to find something attractive as well as raccoon and squirrel proof to put in its place. This totally fits the bill – and is attractive at the same time. Shipping was fast, it was quick to put together and it is a super sturdy system. Love it!

    Though I had qualms about the price, this squirrel proof pole was worth every penny. Easy to set up, even for a 79 year old. There are plenty of hooks to hang things from: I have two different seed feeders, a suet cage, a hummingbird feeder and on occasion a plant. And there is enough space to provide birds with social distancing. I often see seven at the same time. Even though they must have tried, I have never even seen any resident squirrel attempt a raid, instead they wait for the messy birds to provide food on the ground. I am not tall enough, so I banged a big headed nail into an old broomstick at right angles to fill the feeders. My old feeder had a sloped roof shaped baffle.; the grey squirrels made it there with 9 ft jumps from a tree, a red squirrel jumped from the post to one of the feeders, sitting comfortably on the baffle. The 4 feeders on the old post only ever had two birds at a time because of crowding. Even though I don’t feed the squirrels any more, my bird supply budget has almost doubled, and there is a live bird performance any time of day, and you don’t need a mask or leave the house.

    This pole has worked perfectly. I love that it’s sturdy and can hold so many feeders. I added a platform feeder to my suet and traditional feeders and now get more species. I watched a couple of brave squirrels try to climb or jump when it first went up but the word got out quickly and they now don’t bother trying. The squirrels and chipmunks still get plenty of treats from what the birds toss around. It’s so entertaining to watch! Great product. I highly recommend it. It was easy to put up and looks great in my backyard.

    Sturdy. Pretty easy to assemble. Highly recommend.

  11. Daniel Giuffra (verified owner)


    I am not a handyman in anyway, but after about 25/30minutes I was able to fully assemble the contraption! One month in and no squirrels have been able to access the birdfeeders! I got this as a gift for my mom’s birthday as she now works from home due to COVID-19. She now has a lovely birdfeeder outside her “office” window and she loves it!

    I run in the neighborhood a lot and can tell you that all of the neighborhood birds wont stop chirping about how much they love this birdfeeder stand!

    After years of fighting squirrels emptying and destroying bird feeders and black oil sunflower seeds I just happened to see this squirrel proof pole and baffle when I was searching for a hummingbird feeder. I read the description and decided to give this item a try and ordered it the next day. It has worked out great and kept the squirrels on the ground instead of on top of my shepherds rods I was hanging my feeders on. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase and I feel like I finally won a battle with our many squirrels. Not a one has been past the baffle to date and we have some determined squirrels.

    The squirrel stopper pole actually works! I love it. I had recently set up a couple of bird feeders on a regular hook pole and was really enjoying watching all the birds, until the squirrels discovered the feeders and completely took over. It’s very solid and nice looking, but more importantly, not one squirrel has been able to climb it. I’ve had it for about 3 months and after hearing me rave about it, a Couple of weeks ago a friend asked me to order one for her too. Worth every penny!

  14. Kyle (verified owner)

    Searched around for a nice solid post to hang my bird feeders and could not find alternatives to what I used previously. While the others worked, they tended to be less then stellar and being an avid birder I wanted to setup feeders at our new place ASAP. Well somehow I stumbled upon this setup and at first was take aback by the price. Then I reviewed it in detail, took in the quality that is listed and decided I want something solid, that can hold multiple feeders and is squirrel proof as possible. When it arrived, it went together easily and it was obvious that is a quality piece. Have not seen one squirrel get up the pole and the feeders are not chewed upon by them. If you want a quality setup that will last, this is it.

    A bear took out our old pole in the spring. This has been a wonderful replacement. My husband had no trouble assembling it and getting it “planted” in the ground. I have enjoyed watching the squirrels attempting and FAILING to get to the bird food. I love all the extra hanging spots. Our only problem now is keeping the feeders full. The birds are grateful. Thank you!

    The price of this feeding station pole concerned us at first, however, we liked the height and various options it provided so we purchased. We are thrilled that we took the plunge! This station is well built, sturdy, easy to set up, and the birds are now comfortable with it, and enjoying it almost as much as we are enjoying watching them!
    As to the squirrels, since we love feeding them, we have a feeder for them set up in another area of the yard, so all our backyard friends are happy!
    Take the plunge and purchase this set up – you won’t be sorry!

  17. Robert B. Petersen (verified owner)

    Fantastic product. Elegant looking and performs beautifully. I’m no longer feeding squirrels! Definitely worth the price.

  18. Jay (verified owner)

    This squirrel stopper pole does exactly that. We have been plagued by squirrels and they clean us out of birdseed every chance they get, but not with feeders on this pole. It does an excellent job of keeping them at bay, and I haven’t had issues with raccoons, either. My husband is so pleased with it that he said get another one! (Now if it could only get rid of the starlings! ) Great product!

    My wife and I love feeding the birds, especially the beautiful Cardinals, but not so much the Squirrels! A couple years ago, we bought this cheap, short 1″ bird feeder pole from Walmart only hold 2 feeders. Even though we had the Squirrel ‘guards on it, they still managed to literally jump from ground on top of it then on to the feeders…hence chasing the birds away! As I googled ‘how to keep Squirrels away from feeders’, I found this one! I showed my wife, without hesitation, she said order it! It’s well worth the money, and so fun to watch the Squirrels try to climb pole without success! Very simple to install! Within about 30 minutes from opening box to being in the ground with feeders hung, we was enjoying birds again! Well worth the money!
    Thanks Scott for an awesome product!

    I bought a squirrel stopper pole last spring and absolutely loved it because it actually worked – no more squirrels on my feeders. I had been completely frustrated by the squirrels and had tried various types of feeders, baffles, spices added to seed, and nothing worked until I used this pole. I loved it so much I just bought one as a gift. It looks lovely too!

  21. Linda Bolano (verified owner)

    This pole and baffle was just the thing to stop the pesky family of raccoons that were wreaking havoc on my bird feeders every night! So far they have not been able to get past the baffle! I am thrilled! The set is ery well made and looks amazing as well! I would definitely buy this again!
