Product Description

The patented Squirrel Buster technology is truly squirrel proof. Thousands of delighted bird lovers have confirmed it. The Squirrel Buster Classic has openings in the wire grid that align with the seed ports and provide birds access to the seed. When a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, its weight automatically forces the grid down, closing access to the seed ports. Squirrels and many large birds are foiled but not harmed in any way.

Brome 1015 Squirrel Buster Classic

Equipped with patented Squirrel Buster technology, this Brome 1015 Squirrel Buster Classic bird feeder offers an innovative design that attracts birds while keeping squirrels at bay. The bird feeder holds up to 1.4 quarts of bird seed, whether it's Black Oil sunflower seed (a good all-round birdseed) or other seed blends specific to your area.

A welcome choice for bird lovers, the squirrel-proof bird feeder attracts a wide variety of clinging and perching birds including American Gold Finches, Chickadees, Hairy Woodpeckers, Cardinals, Indigo Buntings, Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, White-Breasted Nuthatches, and Purple Finches.

Squirrel-Proof / Chew-Proof

Openings in the wire shroud align with seed ports and provide birds access to the seed. When a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, its weight automatically forces the shroud down, closing access to the seed ports. All squirrels and many large birds are blocked from accessing the seed, but are not harmed in any way.

Negative Grip Tube

Even more, the feeder includes a negative grip tube which prevents squirrels from grabbing the wire hanger with their hind legs, hanging down alongside the feeder, and defeating the closing mechanism.

Place the Feeder Almost Anywhere

Locate your feeder just about anywhere--no more worrying about those pesky squirrels. Position the feeder by your deck, in a nearby tree, or over a favorite window for those great close-up views. The bird feeder hangs easily with the use of wall brackets, branch hooks, or extension hooks.

Be sure to allow for at least 16 inches (40 cm) of clearance around the feeder. This clearance will prevent a squirrel from reaching over from a nearby foothold to access the seed without placing its weight on the feeder. Forcing the squirrel to climb all the way onto the feeder triggers the closing mechanism, preventing access.

Easy to Fill and Clean

The Squirrel Buster Classic dismantles easily for filling and cleaning. A handy maximum-seed-level indicator on the bottom of the yellow center-post cap helps prevent over-filling. To clean, wash the components of Squirrel Buster Classic with a solution of dish detergent and warm water. Rinse with a solution of white vinegar, a mild natural disinfectant. The bird feeder should be hand washed only; it is not dishwasher-safe.

This is truly a squirrel proof feeder. I have two of these. Only complaint is that the spring mechanism broke on one of them while cleaning and it's toast. Just treat it gently when cleaning. I am getting another one since it's the only feeder I have seen that keeps squirrels off. As for the critters swinging the feeder around to disperse seeds, this is a very small "squirrel tax" to pay. Put some seed on the ground for our bushy tailed friends and be thankful they are not ON the feeder.

I live in an area with a lot of old oak trees, so the community has a huge squirrel population. I have had problems with the little furry guys before - they can literally empty an entire feeder in an hour. I have purchased more expensive models before, but the squirrels figured out a way to hang upside down and raid the seed. This product works extremely well - it doesn't stop the squirrels from trying, but they get discouraged after awhile and jump down, leaving the seed alone.

One morning I woke up to find the shepherds hook I had the bird feeder hanging on bent to the ground and the feeder in the middle of the yard on its side. We had a windstorm during the night, so I figured it blew down. The next day I woke up to the same thing - and the feeder was completely empty.

In addition to a large squirrel colony, we also have a large raccoon colony. The raccoons managed to push the pole to the ground, remove the feeder from the hook, and placed the feeder on its side, so that the levers that close off the seed when the weight of a squirrel lands on it were not operational....and proceeded to empty the contents of the feeder.

I have been able to overcome this problem by greasing the pole the feeder is on....the raccoons can't get a grip on the pole to push it to the ground.

Overall, this product is great for what it sets out to do... keep squirrels from hogging all the seed....just watch out for raccoons!

...as there is no tension adjustment on this classic model, so you cannot 'fine-tune' it to reject larger 'pig' birds like starlings and the like. Also, unlike the Plus model which completely closes off the feed port then weighted down, this classic model has a coarse mesh that only partially blocks the feed port. It keeps the squirrels out, but the nuscence birds still are able to feast.

To be fair, Brome never claims this model can be adjusted nor do they recommend it to keep larger birds off the feeder.

So, if squirrels are your only problem, this less expensive model will indeed fit your need. If you are looking for more control over who is working your feeder, spend the extra money for the Plus model.

This feeder only works in theory. The open cups are covered by a cage that when the weight of a squirrel gets on it, covers the open cups with cage material. It does move over the openings but all the squirrel does is shake it like a salt shaker by moving and the seed falls to ground for ez eating. I have watched one critter empty it completely in about 2 hours. The Better choice is The "Plus" version that puts a solid cover when a squirrels weight pulls it down.

I have a problem with red squirrels and chipmunks. It keeps the fatter squirrel off the feeder, but the skinnier two just snake their hands in and snatch out the seeds. It doesn't stop the chipmunks at all; they're too small to trigger the weight limit. The fat squirrel sits at the bottom eating the seeds knocked down by the two smaller ones having to work so hard.

Worse, because it takes the squirrels more effort to get the seeds, they spend twice as much time working at the feeder. The seed doesn't go down as quickly but there's no chance for birds to come feed.

This might work for heavier gray squirrels but it's a total bust for red squirrels and chipmunks.

No, maybe squirrels can't get inside the feeder, but they don't have to. All they have to do is shake it or set it to swinging, and seed goes all over the place. Then they take what seeds they want out of the resulting mess and leave the rest to rot. They can trash a feeder's worth of seed within a week. I'll be looking for yet another feeder as soon as I can afford it.

This product is great. Without hurting the squirrels, except mentally, it prevents them from robbing birdseed from the birds, while allowing most birds to continue feeding. I don't know about the rest of you, but I have found squirrels to be pretty clever at getting around most barriers, but this device works just as advertised. After two or three failed attempts to get seeds out of it, the squirrels have stopped trying. Surprisingly, we even get woodpeckers taking sunflower seeds from this feeder.
