The guards DO NOT FIT bases! Specifically, the base Item model number: 203CP and an older/rounded glass feeder base. The bases have 'spouts' that measure 5/16" wide. The guards have holes to receive the spouts that are .03" smaller than the spouts! I drilled out the guards using a 5/16" drill and the guards mounted well. If you do this, you should probably use a drill press, as centering the drill perpendicularly on the guard would be very difficult freehand.
While I do not know this, I have the impression that the bases were made using the standard 5/16 inch measure, and the guards were made using a metric measure that was judged 'close enough'. Close, but no cigar! Maybe if we make enough noise, Perky Pet will improve their manufacturing!
One minor problem with the guards is that some insects are small enough to enter the mesh but too stupid to figure a way out and thusly meet their demise. When cleaning the mesh of the guards be sure to clean the inside as well.

Bee rescue alert: If you ever find a bee that's only "mostly dead" (as in The Princess Bride), floating your sugar water, or even stuck in your oriole feeder's grape jelly like a mini La Brea Tar Pits casualty, DON'T GIVE UP on it! I've gently removed bees from grape jelly & bottle feeders, gently washed the bees off with water, and then let them dry off in the sun on my deck rail. I kept an eye on them, and saw them buzz away about 15 minutes later. They didn't simply fall victim to birds. (And I don't do grape jelly or bottle feeders anymore. You can feed orioles just as well with fruit like oranges & cherries, as well as sugar water in a dish-style feeder.) Honey bees are experiencing a devastating population collapse, so every one counts.
Only problem? Now it's September 25, and all my hummingbirds have headed south. No more cute little charmers till next April. : (
