Product Description

Squirrel Buster Plus Bird Feeder with Removable Cardinal Ring This posigrip ring system has been specifically designed to attract cardinals. These perennial favorites have two very distinct features: small necks and big feet. They prefer gripping a thick textured perch and facing their food source directly. Cardinals dislike turning their heads to feed. The Squirrel Buster Plus Cardinal Ring perch system allows them to eat facing the seed while providing a secure and comfortable perch. These cardinal friendly feeding features combined with a bush level location make Squirrel Buster Plus very inviting to cardinals. Thick, adjustable-length perches with textured surfaces provide a secure and comfortable grip for small birds. The seed ports will close automatically when a squirrel climbs onto the feeder. Birdwatch America's Best New Product Award. Seed capacity: 3 quarts. Squirrel Buster Plus is also easily assembled and dishwasher safe.

Brome 1024 Squirrel Buster Plus

Equipped with patented Squirrel Buster technology, this Brome 1024 Squirrel Buster Plus bird feeder offers an innovative design that attracts birds while keeping squirrels at bay. The bird feeder holds 3 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, Cardinals, Downy Woodpeckers, Indigo Buntings, Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, Evening Grosbeaks, and Purple Finches. A Cardinal Ring comes included, providing a comfortable perch for Cardinals.

Squirrel-Proof / Chew-Proof

Openings in the bottom section of the feeder (shroud) align with seed ports, providing birds access to the seed. When a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, its weight automatically forces the shroud down, closing the seed ports. Squirrels and large birds are blocked from accessing the seed, but are not harmed in any way.

The Closing Mechanism

Start by using the feeder with the factory setting before making any adjustments. A small red squirrel (4 ounces) will trigger the closing mechanism at this setting. To increase the setting, rotate the transparent cartridge clockwise. The red line will move down from the previous setting. This increases the weight required to close access to the seed. To decrease the setting, turn the cartridge counter clockwise. The red line will move up from the previous setting. This decreases the weight required to close access to the seed. The adjustable weight settings make it easy to control unwanted squirrels and larger-size birds.

Place the Feeder Almost Anywhere

Position your feeder just about anywhere and be squirrel-free. Hang the Squirrel Buster Plus over a window, in a tree, on a deck or fence, in your garden, on the side of your house, from a rain gutter, or over sliding doors to get great close-up views of your favorite birds. The bird feeder hangs easily with the use of a wall bracket, extension hook, or tree hook (sold separately).

Easy to Fill and Dishwasher-Safe

The Squirrel Buster Plus dismantles for convenient filling, and it's top-rack dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning as needed.

The,birds enjoy the feeder,and the,squirrels,cannot get into it...and they have tried!
Jayne R. Mcdonald
The feeder is well made and holds quite a bit of seed (I use sunflower seeds in it)and is very easy to clean.
L. Schweikert
The weight required to close the seed ports is adjustable, so you can also keep large birds off your feeder.

This feeder is the best I've had, and I have had a bunch. It has a huge capacity so you don't have to fill it very often. It is almost impossible for squirrels to stand on and if they manage to get a foothold their weight closes the feeding ports so they can't get anything. You can adjust it to exclude large birds such as starlings and grackles. When it needs to be cleaned you just put it in the dishwasher. When an especially crafty squirrel tried to chew it's way in to my feeder I informed Brome about the damage and they sent me a replacement part for free! Squirrel busters have a lifetime warranty against squirrel damage. I have had mine for about 3 years and couldn't be happier with it. If you only have one bird feeder in your life this should be the one.

This is the second Squirrel Buster feeder I've bought. I've had the first one for over five years and am replacing an old feeder (not a Squirrel Buster). This feeder is the best feeder made to discourage squirrels from emptying seed. Our area is loaded with squirrels and they have tried everything to get to the seed in the feeder, with no luck. One time they did damage the feeding ports in an attempt to get at the sunflower seeds and when I contacted the company, they sent me a new part at no charge. Another time these darned squirrels actually chewed on the metal lid and again, the company sent me a new part. I would not hesitate to recommend this feeder to anyone, especially if you are bothered by raiding squirrels. The feeder is well made and holds quite a bit of seed (I use sunflower seeds in it)and is very easy to clean. It is well worth the cost. The customer service I've received from this company is absolutely top-notch.

My issue isn't squirrels, it's starlings and grackles. They'll empty a feeder in a day or two and keep the 'desired' birds from feeding. This feeder thwarts these pest birds better than any other feeder or feeder cage that I've tried. The smaller birds have no trouble getting to the seed and we've even had a pair of cardinals feed for the first time in the three years we've been feeding. I'm thoroughly satisfied so far with this item and am buying one for my father and one for my sister. Highly recommended.
----Update----
It does indeed deter squirrels as well, I watched one try again and again to acess this feeder to no avail. However, the local starlings have learned to grasp the cardinal ring and flap enough to partially open the feed ports (clever little buggers). The cardinal ring will be removed to eliminate that issue. The versitility of this feeder is wonderful.

I love this feeder. In fact, I have three. It requires only infrequent cleaning since water can't get into the tube. However, I recently found a goldfinch stuck and hanging upside down from the feeder. Its foot was wedged between the end of the perch and the cardinal ring. I called Brome and was told that they were aware of the problem and they sent me some small rings (with no instructions) to cover the ends of the perches. I wish Brome would modify the feeder before they sell it rather than offer a fix only when confronted with a complaint.

I am pleased with this feeder. The construction is excellent and I've been enjoying the return of my titmice. You've got to hang the feeder, though, where squirrls can't hang from a branch and hold down the ring to get the seed. Squirrels must be very smart. I'll probably buy another. 5 stars! See my video of this feeder in action at [...]! Update 1/09: I did buy a second feeder and love it. I took it apart and washed it in the dishwasher which was great. One night I saw a rodent on it and I wanted then to sterilize it. I've owned lots of feeders and this one really brings in the smaller birds. Note: Interior screw is plastic. If you put a little vaseline on it, the bolt goes on a lot easier. Gee, they could have used a metal thread! Still 5 star.

ADDITIONAL POST: I lost my instructions for assembling after washing and called the number on the website they they talked me through the process. It was nice to speak to a actual person. I think they are in Canada. Great service. 8.2.10

Size Name: 24" x 7.75" x 6.75" Verified Purchase
This feeder was a bit expensive (price has been dropping though), but when I opened the package I could see why, the build quality and design is excellent. Plus it's very large. My previous feeder was a square plastic tube with a moving metal cage with fake "leaves" around it to stop the squirrels. It worked well enough for a year, but it had exposed springs and thin plastic, it was just a matter of time and the squirrels bent the metal leaves and ate through the plastic.

The Brome is much heavier throughout, with a strong plastic tube joined up with metal and plastic parts. The mechanical spring adjuster is totally enclosed within the unit so it doesn't rust and the squirrels cant get at it. It also comes apart easily for washing. The "cardinal" ring is an optional installation, other wise you set the perch length for the size bird you want to attract.

So do birds like it? yes very much, it will hold 3 or 4 finch at a time, or two larger birds.

So has it stumped the squirrels? yes they try sometimes, but are satisfied to hang out on the ground below. I did have an unknown predator skunk the feeder once when I had it installed too low to the ground. I suspect it was either Deer or raccoon that rocked it side to side dumping 1.5 lbs of seed out. I've moved it higher now and have not had a repeat event.

I suspect with care this feeder will last many years.

June 2008 update
A year later and this feeder has held up very well. Squirrels have scratched the lid trying to open it but they still can't get to the feed. The top appears to aluminum because despite the scratches it has not rusted. I like how easy this feeder is to clean and the spring mechanism is very well protected so it's still working like new.
